Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Manual lymph drainage (MLD) is a gentle technique used to address lymphedema, or excess swelling, that often occurs during pregnancy, injury, or in response to cancer treatments. The lymphatic system is part of the immune and circulatory systems and is responsible for moving fluids through the body. This highly specialized technique uses light, rhythmical, hand movements to influence the direction and speed of lymphatic flow. MLD therapy acts as an external pump that reduces fluid buildup and enhances the release of toxins, stimulating recovery and facilitating drainage of congested fluids.

I was recommended to Sage Acupuncture by my team at Texas Fertility Center... they not only helped increase my fertility, but worked on other related issues like my digestion and anxiety as well as periodic headaches and allergy symptoms. - Meg H.
Sage Acupuncture is simply wonderful! I've been a client for over two years, before, during and after pregnancy. - Shannon H.
These ladies are great-- very knowledgeable, kind and gentle. I started a year ago to help with fertility, my progesterone was extremely low. Within a few months it was within normal range and I was pregnant. I then continued all throughout my pregnancy for maintenance and comfort.

Sage provided the ultimate support I needed in my fertility journey. I couldn't have asked for a better team and now my daughter just turned 1! I first came to Sage filled with pessimism, frustration, sadness, anger and ultimately because of their support felt hopeful again, empowered, healthier and happier. Other than the actual baby... working with you ladies was the best part of my fertility journey! - Anne M.
