Manual Lymphatic Drainage
A gentle, non-invasive lymphatic massage designed to detoxify the body.
What Is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?
The lymphatic system is an important part of the immune and circulatory system. Lymph fluid carries important cells that help fight infections throughout the body. But when this fluid builds up and is unable to naturally dissipate, uncomfortable swelling can occur. Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a specialized type of massage that is designed to assist lymph flow and aid in tissue drainage. Using the traditional Vodder method, we use rhythmic strokes to encourage the flow of lymphatic fluid towards the cardiovascular system, where it is naturally filtered out of the body.
MLD reduces inflammation, supports internal functioning, and increases overall wellbeing. It can also treat bodily swelling and inflammation caused by autoimmune disorders like arthritis, lupus, or Lyme disease.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage Is Used To Aid The Treatment Of:
- Inadequate Immune Function
- Migraine Headaches
- Post-surgical Swelling
- Swollen Ankles
- Digestive Issues
- Sinus Issues
- Chronic Stress

Lymphatic Drainage FAQ
Lymphatic Drainage is recommended for symptoms that occur immediately following surgery, such as bruising, swelling, stiffness, burning, scars, and soreness. Although you should speak with your surgeon, many recommend lymphatic drainage within the days following your surgery.
No, it is not recommended that you start lymphatic drainage if you have open wounds. This procedure should not be performed until the surgical incision has completely healed.
Anyone who suffers from migraine headaches, post-surgical swelling, swollen ankles, digestive issues, sinus issues, fatigue, or chronic stress can benefit from manual lymphatic drainage.
Anyone who suffers from regular inflammation, malignant tumors, thrombosis, or major vascular issues should not undergo manual lymphatic drainage. Please disclose any existing health conditions with your massage therapist to determine if this procedure is appropriate.
Lymphatic drainage encourages the flow of lymphatic fluid towards the cardiovascular system, where it is naturally filtered out of the body. It is used to aid in the rehabilitation of plastic surgeries and also treats swelling and inflammation that can be caused by autoimmune disorders like arthritis, lupus, or Lyme disease.
Using the traditional Vodder method, light pressure and rhythmic motions reduce toxins in your body by increasing lymph flow. Some patients report feeling fatigued after their treatment. Because it flushes toxins from your system, feeling thirsty afterwards is also common – be sure to stay hydrated following your massage.
Many surgeons recommend that their patients receive lymphatic drainage immediately following their plastic surgery procedure. Liposuction procedures and tummy tucks – for example – disrupt the natural pathways of the body’s lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage massage reduces swelling and discourages scar tissue from forming, making it ideal for anyone who has undergone an invasive plastic surgery.
Although it sounds quite invasive, we use light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes. The procedure is not painful and can even be relaxing to many patients.

Medicupping Vacuum Therapy
ACE MEDICUPPING ™
A curative cupping therapy that provides the restorative benefits of a deep tissue massage in significantly less time.
What Is Cupping Therapy?
MediCupping is a specialized type of cupping massage that reaches deep into the body’s soft tissue to effectively reduce inflammation, release scar tissue, relax fascia, and eliminate toxins at a cellular level. During this therapeutic procedure, a series of glass cups are placed on the body. A strong yet controlled suction pulls on the surface of the skin, causing separation to occur between the layers of tissue below. The cups may be moved across the body in long, gentle strokes or “parked” in place on areas that need specific attention. Differing levels of suction also allow us to fully customize your treatment depending on your body’s specific needs.
What Does Cupping Therapy Do For Your Body?
This process allows for increased levels of water absorption and increased blood flow. It also releases deeply held metabolic waste into the lymphatic system, where it is swiftly removed from the body. Clearing away these impurities at a cellular level allows healthier cells to take their place while also rehydrating the muscle tissue. The result is significant pain relief and a renewed feeling of wellness.
Does Cupping Hurt?
Some types of cupping can cause deep red marks to occur where the cup has been suctioned to the skin. But MediCupping doesn’t leave any unsightly marks after the massage is over. Instead, MediCupping acts on the central nervous system and encourages a feeling of total relaxation.
Natural sedative effects often lull the patient into a deeply tranquil state during their cupping therapy procedure. Patients compare the feeling to that of a deep tissue massage, and many describe feeling a warm, tingling sensation underneath the muscle that lasts even after the massage has been completed.
Who Does Cupping Therapy Benefit?
Cupping massage is used to treat everything from sore, overworked muscles to more serious conditions associated with Diabetes, Parkinson’s, and Fibromyalgia. Cupping therapy can reduce the appearance of scar tissue and cellulite. It is also a recommended supplement for pre- and post-surgery conditions, chiropractic treatment, and orthopedic work. The therapeutic properties alone make it an ideal treatment option for anyone who suffers from high blood pressure, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, chronic headaches, and neuralgia.

MediCupping is a specialized type of cupping massage that is not often offered at traditional massage clinics. Regular cupping uses manual equipment, while MediCupping uses a machine to create suction on the surface of the body.
A practice that has been around for centuries, MediCupping uses vacuum suction to separate the layers of tissue that lie underneath the skin. It increases hydration, reduces inflammation, and eradicates scar tissue. With that said, it also can treat serious symptoms associated with conditions like Diabetes, Parkinson’s, and Fibromyalgia.
Red marks only occur when cups are “parked” in one area for an extended period of time. Most commonly, cups are moved across the body in long, gentle strokes. Although an increase of circulation can cause slight redness, red circular marks are not common.
Although experiences vary from person to person, most people find MediCupping to be a unique, relaxing experience. The suction created by the cups pulls on the skin, releasing tension and increasing circulation to those areas. It can be intense at times, but most people report that it eases their tension, relieves their stress, and imparts a renewed feeling of wellness. Many people equate it to the feeling of a deep tissue massage.
MediCupping is recommended for anyone who wants to treat the layers of tissue that lie underneath the skin. Great for athletes, it can also benefit anyone who experiences high blood pressure, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, chronic headaches, neuralgia, or sore muscles.
MediCupping is not recommended for anyone who is currently pregnant. It also should be avoided by anyone who experiences bleeding disorders, blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, or anyone with a history of strokes.
