Manual Lymphatic Drainage (also called lymphatic drainage and lymph massage) is a gentle therapy which encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The lymph system consists of vessels and lymph nodes that are supplementary to the body's circulatory system. The lymph system transports nutrients to the cells and moves excess water, cellular waste, bacteria, viruses and toxins. It is particularly beneficial for detoxification, edema, pre and post-plastic surgery and post-liposuction. Manual lymphatic drainage can also help with cellulite treatments, scar tissue, spider veins, redness and acne.
