Lymphatic Drainage

What is Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic drainage is a modality that can have a profound effect on our health and wellbeing. Manually applied lymphatic drainage has been used in European hospital and clinics for a number of years, and is prescribed by doctors. Studies attesting to its efficacy through the work of scientific and medical specialists are numerous.

The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory apparatus of the body, a complex system of watery pathways found throughout the tissues. It provides the mechanism by which excess tissue fluid, which has escaped from the blood circulation, is eventually returned to the blood system.

Lymphatic drainage is specifically designed to stimulate and reactivate the functions of the lymphatic system. This then stimulates the production and transportation of immunocompetent cells, as well as reabsorption of excess fluid by the venous system.

The overall effect of lymphatic drainage in cleansing the lymphatic pathways is rejuvenating and energising. Immune system functions are boosted, making this an ideal therapy to incorporate as a preventative care option. The lymphatic drainage techniques also stimulate the actions of the para sympathetic nervous system, creating anti-pain and anti-spasm (or relaxation) effects. The techniques used are feather-light and specific in their manoeuvres to both nodes and lymphatic vessels, applied in a manner and pattern conforming to the natural circulatory directions of the lymphatic system.
