Surgery Recovery

Manual Lymph Drainage is often recommended as a pre and post surgical treatment for a variety of procedures. As a pre-op treatment, it can prepare the body through relaxation, as well as encouraging lymphatic flow. This then helps prevent excessive swelling and bruising after the surgery during the recovery period.

As Reflexology Lymph Drainage is based on the concepts of MLD, but transposed onto the feet or hands via the reflexes, it can be said that RLD is also a useful tool in preparing for surgeries, as well as recovering afterwards.
