Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Gentle, slow and rhythmic strokes stimulating the Lymphatic System to increase effectiveness of the immune system.
The techniques applied can reduce blockages and restrictions in the lymphatic system enhancing lymph collection and transport to your lymph nodes where pathogenic substances can be inactivated, increasing the body’s resistance to disease.
Lymphatic Drainage can help in reducing oedema (excessive accumulation of fluid in the interstitial spaces of the tissues due to an overloaded Lymphatic System). Often presenting as swelling and tight feeling skin in the affected region.
Oedema can be the result of inflammatory reactions, increased capillary fluid pressure, obstruction of venous flow, liver disease, kidney failure, congestive heart failure, tight bandaging or casts, lymphatic system dysfunction, and/or high volume of blood during pregnancy.
