Lymph drainage massage

is typically employed for the purpose of increasing lymph flow through the lymph vessel system to bring about a reduction of fluid accumulation or edema. It consists of a series of gentle movements of light pressure usually applied in a circular pattern and following the general distribution of lymph vessel drainage regions. Because the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to detoxify, regenerate tissue and maintain a healthy immune system, lymphatic drainage massage can be beneficially applied to a wide variety of health concerns. In the field of physical therapy, the focus tends to be on the reduction of swelling and lymphedemas of various origins.
