Lymph Drainage Therapy is a gentle, light-touch, noninvasive technique. The lymphatic system is a complex network of vessels and ducts that move fluid throughout the body removing toxins from healthy cells and carrying germ-fighting materials to cells when they are needed. Though fluid moves through the lymphatic system, it does not have its own pumping mechanism. Lymphatic drainage is a type of therapy that is intended to help the body produce a free-flowing lymphatic system.
This type of therapy consists of a manual massage, performed by a lymphatic drainage therapist. . Proponents of lymphatic drainage believe that the process will reduce blockages of the lymphatic system, which in turn promotes a healthier body.
