Manual Lymphatic Drainage


Lymph drainage is a specialized technique focusing on treating the swelling and lymphedema in the body. The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to detoxify and regenerate tissues. The lymphatic system filters out foreign substances, recovers crucial substances that have escaped from the blood and helps maintain a healthy immune system. The lymph drainage procedure involves using flat hands and all the fingers to simulate specific wave-like movements. These subtle manual maneuvers activate lymph and interstitial fluid circulation as well as stimulate the functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems. With lymph drainage, there is immediate and marked reduction of acute and chronic edema and hematomas, post-injury and after surgery.
