When viewing our massage menu you may be asking yourself “what the heck is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?” Well we have answers!

Benji is a 21 month year old little boy who was diagnosed at 16 months old with a rare genetic disease. He has MPS 1 (Mucopolysaccharidosis I) which is caused by a mutation in a gene that causes his body not to produce a necessary enzyme. The lack of this enzyme effects his organs, his vision, his body system, his skeletal system and his cognition. There are only about 2,000 people in the world diagnosed with this disease. Immediately after diagnosis, Benji started going to the hospital once a week to receive a 4 hour enzyme infusion. In addition to this treatment, Benji received a bone marrow transplant at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) in August. This required him to have a central line put in and to receive 7 days of chemotherapy drugs in order suppress his immune system so that his body would not reject the bone marrow transplant.

It will continue with the second and most harmful label, our race, followed by our religious beliefs, color of our skin, etc. By the age of ten we have already forgotten who we are and that we are all part of the one and only universal race, the human race.
