Auburn Hills, MI – If you don't change the oil in your car, eventually your car will break down. This is the job of our lymphatic system: filtering debris around our cells and triggering immune responses to pathogens in our system.

Elisa DiFalco is a Certified Manual Lymphatic Drainage Specialist and the founder of MLD Institute International. For over two decades, the institute has been the leader in providing quality education, certification and continuing education to massage and medical professionals in manual lymphatic drainage.

DiFalco studied with the pioneer of lymphedema treatment, Dr. Robert Lerner.

“One of our most difficult challenges was that we had a generation of doctors where the lymphatic drainage was not part of mainstream medical training,” DiFalco recalls. “Doctors would come to our clinic to learn from him as another doctor what the treatment is, what it entailed, and how to set up their own clinic. Today, I am carrying on his legacy as a trainer, so I can help other clinics around the country and internationally.”

As the field of manual lymphatic drainage has grown, so has its applications. Lymphatic drainage can also be used to promote preventative wellness, beauty, natural weight loss and anti-aging.

“Ten years ago, lymphatic drainage was strictly for people recovering from lymphatic cancer, but we've evolved,” says DiFalco. “As far as lymphatics is concerned, this the greatest discovery we've had in at least the past century and it's going to be a game-changer for all degenerative brain diseases: Alzheimer’s, MS, Parkinson's and on and on. We're probably going to be on a wave of discovery now through the next ten years at least.”
