Manual Lymphatic drainage is a technique of gentle massage aiming at enhancing lymph circulation and at body detoxification. This massage technique is performed with the fingers and palm of the hands on the whole body, following the lymph normal circulation (extremities toward the trunk). Specific pressure point are used on the ganglion which are tanks collecting the lymph.
After removal of ganglions like in breast cancer, lymphedema appears which can be easily alleviated with lymphatic drainage.
In some case, lymphatic drainage will be associated with circulatory massage to also increase blood return. It is common with patients presenting with leg swelling (water retention) to have a combination of deficit of blood return and lymphatic return causing these symptoms. These deficits can cause cellulite on the long term.
For cellulite, addition of Palper Rouler will be necessary to obtain optimal result.
