Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle type of Massage that aims to encourage the natural drainage of lymph, which carries waste products from the tissues back to the heart. The lymphatic system depends on the intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the lymphatic vessel walls (peristalsis) and the movement of the skeletal muscles to propel the lymph through the lymph vessels, the lymph nodes and then back to lymph vessels to return to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate the lymph flow .
