Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic system

  • It regarded as the body's immune system - the body's protection against infections. It made up of lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, lymph and lymphocytes ( specialized immune cell )

  • Lymph nodes are soft and located in the armpits, groin and neck, chest and abdomen which produce immune cells that fight infection

  • Removes excess fluid, dead cells, bacteria, viruses and other waste products from the body tissues

  • Contraction of muscles, stretching and breathing are the ways to move lymph flow in the vessels

  • Malfunctioning system results in stagnation and congestion in the body tissues and therefore, deprivation of vital nutrients

  • Surgery or other damage can cause fluids to build up in the lymph system and nodes, a condition known as lymphedema

Lymphatic drainage 

  • It is a gentle pressure technique used to move the waste fluids away from damaged area and brings them to the heart, and boost immune system

  • Increases the volume of lymph flow by as much as 20 times, vastly increasing the elimination of toxins and infectious materials, reduces inflammation and promotes regeneration of tissues

  • It is an ideal adjunct for pre- and post operative surgery

  • It's important to use a very light touch and rhythmic circular movement to create pump-like motion by pulling the skin gently
