Mailloux Method

ANGION developed Mailloux Method Lymph Drainage therapy and founded ANGION Education to elevate patient care and providers’ soft tissue assessment skills. By and through understanding tissue textures and lymph watershed mapping, inefficiency in the body is revealed, reducing symptom chasing and fundamentally improving patient quality of life.

MMLD is an effective approach to soft tissue rehabilitation. The incorporation of MMLD provides immediate tissue reorganization and continued pain relief, specifically for scar and tissue trauma recovery.

Patient Assessment

MMLD was founded on the ability to accurately assess and address ALL layers of tissue. Practicing lymphatic care outside of lymphedema management pressure limitations, strategic pressures can and must be safely applied in order to rehabilitate compromised tissue.

Rehabilitation medicine will advance when the lymphatic system and its direct relationship to tissue efficiency and organ function is properly considered during patient assessment.

Lymphatic Expertise

With three decades of lymphatic care expertise, ANGION successfully guides compromised tissue to operate with efficiency. Rebecca Mailloux’ unique foundation in lymphology, anatomic pathology laboratory medicine, hospital morgue science, dermatopathology, behavioral science, and emergency medical services, awards a comprehensive approach to rehabilitation medicine.

Given the average human body holds 8+ liters of lymph and is comprised of 50-60% water, the power of the lymphatic system can no longer be dismissed. The time is now for lymph drainage techniques to be incorporated as a standard of medical care. As providers, we have a responsibility to understand the human body in entirety, let’s get this right!

“Until tissue texture assessments are incorporated into medical education, specialty training is required.”

Rebecca Mailloux, Clinical Director
