Manual Lymph Drainage

What is manual lymph drainage

This is a specialised massage which is intended to assist the lymphatic system in its proper function, particularly in cases of lymphatic swelling. The massage involves light superficial rhythmical movements of the hand, applied to the lymph nodes and the lymphatic vessels. The lymph drainage is usually applied to respective extremities, each extremity generally taking half an hour to massage.

How manual lymph drainage helps

Manual lymph drainage stimulates lymph node activity to drain the lymph into the blood vessels and to cleanse the body; it speeds up the flow of lymphatic fluid to remove toxins, debris, waste products and dead particles. Thus it supports the inborn immunity system in its resistance against various infections. The proper and regular lymph drainage improves also the blood flow in treated tissues as well as their metabolism. Thee reduction of lymphatic swelling improves mobility, the overall sense of well-being, and it reduces the feeling of heavy legs or arms.
