What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage and how does it work?

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a gentle and non-invasive massage technique that employs extremely light pressure to stimulate the lymph vessels located just below the skin’s surface, beneath the outermost layer (epidermis). By activating these initial lymphatics, enhances the rhythmic contractions, allowing for the movement of lymph into the deeper lymphatic vessels. It may seem light, but it is a very powerful therapy.

MLD elevates lymphatic pulsations, increasing them by up to 30 times per minute as opposed to:

Walking, which brings about 9-18 pulsations per minute.

Resting, during which around 6-7 pulsations per minute occur.

Therefore, with increase in lymph flow rate = increases circulation = increases the cleansing process & fluid balance in our tissues and organs, and fights off infections. MLD therapy requires advanced training as we use precise complex movements at the correct speed and pressure to re-stimulate the natural contractions of the lymphatic system. These techniques are based on scientific & physiological principles that have been proven to encourage lymph flow.

Choosing Recovery Rehab Physiotherapy for Lymphatic Drainage Massage Sydney


Our lymphatic drainage massage therapy is your go-to place for your lymphatic health needs in Sydney. We know that a peak functioning lymphatic system is your body’s built-in sanitation center and is instrumental in health and vitality. If the lymph is not flowing well, the cells are poisoned from their own waste and the lymph fluid becomes a toxic cesspool, resulting in many negative side effects including fatigue, swelling, infection, inflammation, and weight gain. If you’re feeling stagnant, dehydrated, unwell, and not moving enough, there is a fair chance your lymphatic system is compromised. You can be toxic and unaware. Discover the life-changing benefits of lymphatic drainage massage near you and regain control of your health and well-being.

During a lymphatic drainage massage session, you can expect a calm and relaxing environment. The therapist will discuss your medical history, lymphedema symptoms, and any concerns you may have. They will then tailor the treatment to your specific needs, focusing on the affected areas and employing the appropriatetechniques By gently stretching the skin and applying just enough pressure, this massage technique encourages increased circulation and movement of fluids away from congested areas, helping to alleviate swelling and inflammation. The key is to use very light strokes and move slowly – too much pressure or fast motions may hinder the effectiveness of the massage.

Intermittent Pneumatic Compression Pump

Treats Lymphoedema, Lipoedema, and Venous

The intermittent pneumatic compression sleeves  attach to a compression machine. The sleeves inflate around your legs and hands every 20 to 60 seconds, then deflate. The sensation feels like a massage. The inflating and deflating movement of the intermittent pneumatic compression device supports your circulation. 

How it works?

  • Healthy movement of blood in your body prevents blood clots from forming.

  • When the sleeves compress, they help the blood move through your body to your heart.

  • When they relax, oxygen-rich blood flows to your leg arteries.

  • The sleeves also help your body release substances that can prevent clots. While not intended to replace MLD treatments, this approach effectively amplifies the flow of the lymphatic system, contributing to an overall improvement in lymphatic circulation.
