The Beauty and Power of Manual Lymphatic Drainage

A Soothing, painless, and gentle rhythm

The weight of a nickel

The rhythm of a heartbeat

A milking of the skin with a cross stretch and forward pump

Increases lymphatic flow by 10x its normal rate

An experienced and professionally trained therapist can maneuver

the lymph through your unique terrain

gliding around blocks

reversing the flow when necessary

successfully guiding the fluid to the closest node

to be filtered then rejoin the blood system at the heart.

Surgery Recovery

This painless soothing touch moves the extra lymphatic load away from the incision’s “blocks”

then flows toward the closest nodes to be processed.

Watch bruises fade

Swelling diminish before your eyes

Pain fades away

The most effective treatment available

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Start your treatments

2 sessions before surgery in preparation

Minimum of 2 sessions a week for 2 to 6 weeks

Decided on a case by case basis

5 to 7 days after surgery or when incisions no longer seep

Mechanical Lymphatic treatments

Do not move the fluids

They vibrate them to thin the fluid

A client came to me with excessive swelling after liposuction of the abdomen.

She had received several mechanical treatments with no relief.

1 60 min session shifted a tennis ball size swelling to normal texture and size.

The client was amazed as she watched the transformation occur so quickly.

Choose the best treatment for yourself

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

The best choice


Damage and loss to nodes and vessels creates a back log of lymphatic fluids causing swelling

This swelling unchecked thickens Lymphatic fluids causing pain and the tissue become necrotic, thick, and leather like.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage can get this dense liquid moving

Releasing the tightness and alleviating tension and pain in the skin


2 to 3 sessions a week for 2 weeks then monthly maintenance

This along with proper compression garments maintains the health and wellbeing of the affected area.

Experienced hands are necessary for optimal results.


A newly discovered condition

Predominate in women

It is a chronic disease of fat metabolism

The ability of glycogen to breakdown and be used for energy is affected.

This causes fat storage to become blocked and toxic.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage assists the fat movement in the blood.

Fat is directly absorbed into the lymphatic system

Manual Lymphatic Drainage may assist the fat to move through the system more quickly possibly creating less storage and blockage of the fat cells.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage along with Liposuction designed especially for this condition has shown increased improvement.

Paula has been a certified Manual lymphatic Drainage Therapist since 1998.

She has successfully treated 1000’s of patients with Manual Lymphatic Drainage
