Lymph is the fluid that circulates throughout the connective tissue. It not only nourishes and detoxifies the tissue, but is also a part of the body’s immune system.
The lymphatic vessels are drained with pumping, circulating, rhythmic, painless, delicate strokes. Patients find this therapy very soothing and relaxing.
- Lymphatic drainage is recommended wherever stasis occurs such as in oedema, heavy and tired legs and arms, tissue defects such as cellulite and a general build-up of toxins causing rheumatism, gout, arthrosis etc.
- This massage is used successfully for obesity, digestive problems and various skin conditions such as acne, eczema etc.
