What is it and how can it help?

Manual lymphatic drainage

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a specialized massage technique that aims to stimulate the lymphatic system to remove excess fluid and waste products from the body’s tissues. It involves gentle, rhythmic strokes and light pressure applied by a trained therapist.

For the majority of my clients I use an integrative approach to massage therapy that reads your body, and tells me what pressures and massage tactics will provide the best results.

LAUREN SMALL

LMT, COTA/L, CLT, PS-MLDC

I’m Lauren Small, a passionate healthcare professional with a unique journey. In 2017, I graduated from PIMA Institute of Technology, achieving an associates in occupational science and earning the title of a certified occupational therapy assistant. Through this foundation, I developed a strong understanding of rehabilitative practices and the human body. My fascination with manual therapy grew, leading me to further pursuits. In 2019, I completed my studies at the Colorado School of Healing Arts, obtaining a license as a massage therapist. The world of manual therapy opened doors for me, but my true focus emerged when I delved into the intricacies of the lymphatic system. In 2020, I received a certification for Manual Lymphatic Drainage from the Academy of Lymphatic Studies. In 2022, I received a certification from the Academy of Lymphatic Studies for using Manual Lymphatic Drainage for plastic surgery recovery. In 2024, I wanted to take my studies on the lymphatic system further and attended the Norton School of Lymphatic Studies, where I became a Certified Lymphedema Therapist.

I went to Lauren for lymphatic drainage massage a few months ago in hopes of finding some relief with some swelling I was experiencing due to a traumatic event. She has helped me tremendously and is very knowledgeable about lymphatic massages. I continue to see her regularly and even have a morning routine that she taught me to perform on myself. Lauren texts me often to check to see how I am feeling. She truly cares about her clients!

Great service and two great massages. I booked a prenatal massage for my wife, and another for myself, and both were fantastic!

Lauren’s approach shifted my view on what makes an effective massage. It is very targeted, clinical, but calm and gentle. She has soothing energy and is intuitive. Lauren treated me following a couple of injuries and I kept going back to her because I felt better and wanted to tap into her expertise.

Therapeutic is one of the first words that comes to mind when I think about the massage Lauren gave me this past Monday. She has and amazing approach and somehow was able to identify issues and problem areas that I wasn't even aware of. My neck and upper back always have some type of mild pain, but leaving her they felt perfectly wonderful for the first time I can remember in years. Her approach is gentle yet thorough. At no point was I in any type of discomfort. Her training as a licensed massage therapist (a somewhat rare find) definitely shines through. I look forward to going back on a regular basis. Thank you Lauren!!!!!!

I initially went to Lauren because she is located in the same office as my chiropractor. I am a repeat client because she has been able to give me relief from any issue that I bring to her. I came in after not having had a massage in almost 2 years. I have been dealing with a tight hip and developed some issues with my neck, shoulders, and upper back. Each time I leave, I feel significantly better than when I arrived. She uses a much gentler approach than what I have been accustomed to, but she has definitely found all the areas that need attention and she works on them and works all the problems out. After each session, I leave lighter and have more mobility. I highly recommend her!
