Why Consider Manual Lymph Drainage?
The primary role of the lymph, which is a type of fluid stored in tissues, is to remove and carry waste that is stored in tissues and bring it towards the lymph nodes, where it can be destroyed by your body’s cells. In those without lymph nodes, as well as those without a working lymphatic system, the fluid continues to gather.
Manual Lymph Drainage uses massage to stimulate the muscle and move the lymph away from the tissues. Once moved, it moves towards the heart and is passed into the blood stream where it is destroyed by other cells. To be performed safely, MLD uses a very specific amount of movement and pressure, and should only be completed by someone with training in this type of procedure.
