LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE THERAPY (LDT) promotes the circulation of lymph and helps rid the body of toxins and waste materials. It also aids in purifying and regenerating tissues while normalizing organ function, and enhancing ones metabolism and immune system. This therapy can be beneficial for post-surgical lymphatic rerouting and can aide in primary and secondary Lymphedema.
