Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is one of the most effective treatment options for patients who suffer from primary and secondary Lymphedema. Primary Lymphedema affects those who were born with a faulty lymphatic system. Secondary Lymphedema is more common and can be caused when a person’s lymphatic system is damaged by:

MLD significantly reduces the side effects of lymphedema, and is most successful when used in conjunction with compression garments, exercise, good nutrition, and proper skin care.
Sunnybrae Therapeutics Practitioners Daphne and Sandra are highly qualified practitioners of MLD. Both have trained through Dr. Vodder School International, and have been practicing MLD for over a decade. Through MLD, they have helped hundreds of patients eliminate the devastating effects of Lymphedema and regain or find their quality of life.
