Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Therapy

anyone heard of this type of therapy that is considered alternative medicine for lymphoma patients and is currently available at Spas, like Tucson, but is it recognized or acknowledged in the medical world since it's classified as an alternative medicine?

    I had heard of it to help lymphedema which is swelling caused by excess fluid in the tissues. But know nothing about for lymphoma. You might want to ask your doc.
