What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?
Manual lymphatic drainage is a specific technique which stimulates the natural circulation of lymph through the body. It is not a muscular massage but a harmonious manual treatment using rhythmical pressure to stimulate lymph vessels and nodes, most of which lie just below the skin, to assist the body to drain the excess fluid and wastes that accumulate in a sluggish lymphatic system.
The lymphatic system is a complex network of vessels and nodes which is responsible for the filtering and removal of excess fluid, metabolic waste, toxins and bacteria in order to cleanse or ‘detox’ the body. It is also an essential part of the immune system, producing immune cells which fight off harmful bacteria and viruses and destroy abnormal cells.
The lymphatic system can become congested as a result of infections, toxins, stress, inactivity and poor diet among other things.
Manual lymphatic drainage can benefit conditions such as; detoxification, skin complaints, fluid retention, weight gain, pre and post surgery and sporting injuries.
Lymphatic drainage is also highly recommended for those prone to and recovering from; sore throats, colds, infections, on-going tiredness, low immunity, swollen nodes and is also beneficial for the physically inactive and for general health maintenance.
