Manual lymphatic drainage
It is an advanced massage therapy technique used in physiotherapy and aesthetics. Its purpose is the manual activation of the superficial lymphatic system to facilitate the drainage of interstitial fluid and lymph, stagnant due to any pathological cause, towards healthy lymphatic territories for their normal evacuation towards the venous stream.
Like this, its stagnation or saturation by waste substances or harmful germs is avoided, in addition to helping to drag the retained liquids towards the circulatory system and the blood.
Treatment with manual lymphatic drainage is a technique that requires specialization and in-depth knowledge of the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic and venous systems on the part of the therapist to achieve the optimal treatment result.
