Manual Lymphatic Drainage
The lymphatic system is a complex network of vessels that move fluid aka Lymph through the body. Although fluid moves through the lymphatic system, it does not have its own pumping mechanism. Manual Lymphatic drainage is a type of therapy that helps lymph flow more easily.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is indicated for cases of poor blood circulation, varicose veins, muscle tension, migraine, hypertension and even sinusitis. In addition, by stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, it is great for relaxing and warding off stress.
Regular Lymphatic Drainage is very powerful to help the body's defences and the process of the immune system to do its cleansing more rapidly.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is contraindicated for those who suffer from renal failure, thrombosis, hyperthyroidism and for patients with tumors in the lymphatic system. Consult your doctor for more information.
