MLD is not for acute stages of sinusitis infections but rather chronic sinusitis or 2-3 days after starting antibiotics. MLD of the face and head area is useful in tinnitus, chronic ear, nose and throat infections. Lymph drainage to the head, face and neck helps to decongest the painful swelling in these areas.
MLD to the neck, nape, face and head can help to relieve migraines.
