Lymphatic Massage

Lymphatic Drainage 

Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle type of massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph from the tissues space body. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels (perlistsis) and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymphatic fluid through the vessels to lymph nodes, and then beyond the lymph nodes to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure (less than 9 ounces per square inch) and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.
