Manual Lymph Drainage & Combined Decongestive Therapy
Manual Lymph drainage is a gentle, relaxing, and pain free therapy, which assists lymph flow and aids in tissue drainage. The techniques mainly involve stretching, pumping, and torqueing the skin in specific directions, in order for the interstitial fluid to travel to the lymph nodes.
It is most commonly known to help treat and maintain lymphedema, where the lymphatic system has been damaged from birth or caused by trauma/surgery/radiotherapy, active malignancy, or chronic venous insufficiency. Combined Decongestive Therapy includes manual lymph drainage, compression, exercise, skin care, and education in self-management.
This can also be successful in the treatment of burns, non-infected inflammatory conditions (ie. Sprains, strains, whiplash), Pre/Post Surgery, Venous Insufficiency, Stroke with Hemiplegia and more.
It can also help decrease intensity and frequency of symptoms in Multiple Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia, Meniere’s Syndrome, and Parkinson’s disease.
