Manual Lymph Drainage and Lymph Drainage Therapy

The lymphatic system cleanses toxins from the body, drains excess fluids, and helps maintain a healthy immune system. Poor lymphatic circulation (caused by surgery, trauma, infection, stress, inherited dysfunction, or aging) can result in a range of related medical conditions and illnesses.

Lymphatic therapy treats these issues by restoring healthy lymphatic circulation. The goal is to remove previously stagnant lymphatic fluids, kickstart the immune system, and give balance to the body's autonomic nervous system.

The entire process is non-invasive, relaxing, extremely gentle, and a key preventive measure, thus contributing to prolonged good health. Practitioners of this technique gently palpate at key points of the body to determine the state of lymphatic circulation. They evaluate for poor flow, and with treatment, encourage the proper rhythm, direction, strength, and quality of lymphatic flow. More than eighty years of research have shown the benefits of lymphatic therapy.

Valerie Bainton, P.T. is extensively trained in both Dr. Vodder's Manual Lymph DrainageTM (MLD) and Dr. Chikly's Lymph Drainage TherapyTM (LDT).

About me

I am a registered physical therapist and have been practicing since 1986. I have worked in a variety of settings including outpatient orthopedics, hospital acute care, holistic health centers, and my own private practice.

I received my B.A.in Biology in 1981 and my B.S. in Physical Therapy in 1986 from the University of Colorado. I received international certification in the European technique of Dr. Vodder’s Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD®) in 1998. I was certified in the Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Massage® in 2007.

I am originally from New England and have lived in Colorado since 1977. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, camping, reading mystery books, gardening, studying herbalism, and helping Steve, my significant other, remodel our house. I have been “Mom” to an Amazon parrot named Buckaroo since 1980.
