Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT) is a light, rhythmic maneuver that aids in the recirculation of lymphatic flow. The therapist works with flat hands and creates wavelike movements, and also detects the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of lymph flow anywhere in the body.
Why Lymphatic Drainage?
Lymph vessels transport numerous substances, including blood proteins, toxins, hormones, fatty acids, and immune cells.
This transport, or flow, of lymphatic fluid can be hindered, restricted, or stopped altogether due to fatigue, stress, lack of physical activity, emotional shock, cold temperatures, infections, substantial swelling, age, chemicals or food additives.
When lymph circulation stagnates many physical ailments may hasten the aging process.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a unique, therapeutic method of stimulating the movement of fluids in the tissues. The gentle, rhythmic, pumping, massage movements follow the direction of lymph flow and produce rapid results. It assists the cutaneous lymphatics in picking up and removing not just fluids, but all the waste products, protein particles and debris from our system. It also is successful in breaking fibrosis and fibrotic areas of a lymphodemous limb.
