Frequently Asked Questions

The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system and is composed of a network of vessels, nodes and organs that carry lymph, a clear fluid containing immune cells and metabolic wastes. It functions to drain excess fluid from the tissues, filter harmful substances and play a vital role in the immune system. Lymph flows through the lymphatic vessels, passes through the lymph nodes, where it is filtered and unwanted substances are removed, and finally is returned to the bloodstream to be eliminated from the body. Manual lymphatic drainage seeks to improve lymphatic flow by applying gentle, rhythmic movements to aid in the elimination of fluids and improve the function of the lymphatic system.

Lymphatic drainage can benefit people with a variety of health conditions, including:

  1. Edema: Helps reduce fluid retention and swelling, commonly associated with edema or inflammation.

  2. Lymphedema: A condition in which lymph accumulates in the tissues, and lymphatic drainage can be an integral part of its management.

  3. Plastic or cosmetic surgery: Can help reduce swelling and speed recovery after procedures such as liposuction or breast surgery.

  4. Sports injuries: May speed recovery by reducing inflammation and improving lymphatic flow.

  5. Weakened immune system: May help improve lymph circulation and stimulate the immune system.

  6. Premenstrual syndrome: Some people find relief from symptoms such as breast swelling and tenderness.
