What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
Originating in the 1900s, Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage is an advanced form of massage that aims to stimulate the lymphatic system to remove congestion and stagnation from within the body.
Having no natural pulse in the lymphatic system, the manual stimulation by lymphatic drainage massage gets your lymph system flowing, which removes blockages and is what flushes toxins from your body. When the lymphatic system is blocked, toxins and plasma accumulate, causing interference with cell nourishment, depressing the immune system.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is performed by applying gentle massage strokes to stimulate movement of the Lymphatic system.
