Wondering what’s the difference between MLD-C treatments vs uncertified Manual Lymphatic Drainage treatmens?

Certified Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD-C) requires many more hours of education and board testing.

We use proven methods that took decades to develop. Our founder Charles Wiley LMT, CST, MLD-C is certified and highly respected by the cosmetic surgery community. He has offered countless hours of guidance to our Manual Lymphatic Drainage team. Staff certification may vary. Excellence in professionalism is always guaranteed. 

As a result, the treatment is painless and the results are instant.

If you are post-op you are likely to feel much better immediately.

If you aren’t post-op don’t worry, this treatment is great for everyone!

We specialize is post-op care for cosmetic patients and Lymphatic maintenance for all of Chicagoland.

Moreover, what we offer is over 10 years experience with post-op Lymphatic Drainage.

Awards and reviews:

Proudly helping the nurses of Chicago.


“Charles really is as fantastic as everyone says. He is extremely professional and always greets you with a smile. The atmosphere, from cleanliness to temperature to music, is perfect every time. You never feel rushed. He pays the utmost attention to your personal needs. I’ve had massages for anxiety and stress relief, as well as sports massages to help aching parts from being on my feet all day at work, and every time I walk out feeling brand new. I’m also extremely chatty while getting worked on and Charles is an excellent conversationalist, if that’s your thing as well. 🙂 I could not recommend Charles more!”

– Caroline H.

“I had the opportunity to visit Charles for the first time recently and it was an amazing experience. I had not had a massage in many years, but felt it was time after starting to feel some back pain, which was likely due to time spent on my computer for 8 hours a day. I cannot describe how much better and relaxed i felt after leaving my appointment. I now plan to return monthly.

Also, i agree completely with all the reviews below with regard to Charles professionalism and the cleanliness/comfort of the office.”

-Maureen E.

“What a great experience! Already booked my second appointment. Professional, relaxing, effective… Very happy!”

– Mary W.

“Charles is amazing! I’m a massage therapist myself and I learn new techniques everytime I receive a massage from him. He’s full of knowledge and has always had an answer to all my questions.”

-Shannon W.

“Charles is knowledgeable, friendly and a fantastic massage therapist. After my first massage, I was so grateful to my friend who referred me to him. The location is serene and cozy, conveniently located off the Wellington stop. Charles makes an effort to understand your lifestyle to adjust his technique to ensure you are receiving the best massage possible. I cannot wait to go back!”
