LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE


Lymphatic Drainage It is a gentle rhythmic, pumping massage that follows the course on lymph system in the body. This technique produces fast results in diminishing swelling and eliminating wastes trapped in the connective tissue back and the lymph nodes to the blood stream. It also helps in the reduction of aches, relaxation (produced by the stabilization of the chemical flow) and in the enhancement of immune function.

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT) was developed by French Bruno Chikly. The method consists on the application of light, rhythmic strokes and circular movements to help relieving ailments related to the body's lymph system.

Note that the lymph system removes toxins and drains fluid, maintaining a healthy immune function. When lymph circulation stagnates, fluid can build up and origin physical troubles, like inflammation, edemas and neuropathies.

This technique is mostly applied in combination with deep tissue or Swedish massage. Another type of massage often confused with Lymphatic Drainage is Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD). MLD was created in the 1930s by Danish Emil and Estrid Vodder following the basis of Lymphatic Drainage, but it also affects the nervous system.
