Lymphatic drainage is a very effective way of detoxing the body plus stimulating vital immune defenses. It is a specialized manual technique designed to activate and cleanse the human fluid system. Because the lymphatic system itself is responsible for optimum functioning of the water circulation and immune system, Lymphatic Drainage is a key to maximizing our ability to rejuvenate and to establish resistance to stress and disease. Today this technique is widely spread throughout Europe and is so highly recognized in the medical field that doctors now commonly prescribe these treatments. This work is facilitated by medical professionals including physical therapists, chiropractor, nurses and massage therapists who are specially trained in lymphatic drainage.
The manual maneuvers employed with lymphatic drainage are very subtle. The work is done with flat hands using all fingers to simulate aquatic, wave-like movements, which enables your practitioner to deeply listen to the rhythm of the body fluids. A heightened awareness opens one’s ability to attune to the exact pressure and rhythm necessary to enter into the flow of the lymphatic system. The therapist assists the lymph to flow in the right direction and dump into the deeper nodes. These nodes are then drained with manual techniques so that they can empty and refill. Getting more toxins and unused materials into the lymphatic system, promotes the immune and helps the body fight infection and disease and helps it heal from injury or surgery.
