Is there a surgical procedure in your future? Manual Lymphatic Drainage can help

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a treatment that moves excess fluid out of the body, helping to stimulate and create a better functioning immune system.  By” draining” your lymphatic system, MLD assists in preparing your body for surgery, and maintaining good health.


If you are scheduled for a surgery, one to three MLD treatments are recommended prior to the operation. Once a surgery is complete, our clinicians at Head To Foot Oasis recommend beginning MLD treatments one full day after the procedure.


If you are scheduled for surgery such as:

  • Hip or knee replacement
  • Breast augmentation
  • Cosmetic Surgery such as nose or face lift
  • Carpal Tunnel release
  • Liposuction
  • Shoulder surgery
  • Dental or an oral surgery
  • And many more…

Some of the benefits of planning for MLD treatments as part of a surgical procedure include:

  • Pain relief
  • A reduction in edema or swelling, which helps to speed up healing and recovery time
  • A re-stimulated immune system which helps to prevent post-surgical infections
  • Deep relaxation to aid insomnia, depression and stress
  • The encouragement of lymphatic “re-routs”
  • A detoxification of body tissues, which helps to reverse a build-up of toxins
