Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (AKA Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy or MLD)--

                      --I received my MLD training & Lymphedema Therapist training through Klose Training & Consulting. The founder, Guenter Klose, studied at the Foeldi Clinic in Germany, then helped found the first treatment center for lymphedema patients in the US. Read Guenter's bio page here.


Note: Some patients who have had lymph nodes removed think they are not at risk for lymphedema because the nodes showed no cancer. What places a patient at risk for lymphedema  is the number of nodes removed or damaged from radiation, not the fact that the nodes were clear. Read more below about lymphedema and the risk reduction practices. Be knowledgeable and be safe!
