WHAT IS LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE?

 

Lymphatic massage, sometimes called manual lymphatic drainage, is a specialized type of massage in which lymphatic fluid collects in certain areas of the body because it cannot drain away effectively.

Lymphatic massage aims to improve the flow of lymph fluid, which should reduce swelling. Massaging an area without swelling will make space for fluid to flow to those parts from more congested areas.

 

There are two types of lymphatic drainage:

 

Manual: A qualified therapist will perform manual lymphatic drainage.

 

Simple: Simple lymphatic drainage is a technique a person can use at home.

Anyone planning on learning simple lymphatic drainage should learn how to do it from a specialist. It is essential to know which area to massage and how much pressure to use.

 

WHAT IS LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE?

 

Lymphatic drainage massage (manual lymphatic drainage massage) helps distribute built-up lymph fluid throughout the body.1 Lymph fluid is a clear or white fluid made up of white blood cells. This fluid is part of the lymphatic system, which helps protect you against infections. This type of massage is typically used to treat lymphedema, which causes lymph fluid to build up and cause swelling.2

 

WHAT HAPPENS DURING A LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE?

 

Lymphatic drainage massage includes two main phases: 

 

Clearing: Moving lymph through your tissues 

Reabsorption: Moving lymph to your lymph nodes

 

The main benefit of lymphatic drainage massage is reducing swelling caused by lymphedema. Lymphatic drainage massage may also help treat stiffness, swelling, and other side effects unrelated to lymphedema.
