Lymphatic Drainage

In 1932,

the manual lymphatic drainage method was pioneered by Dr. Emil Vodder. His exploration of the lymphatic system led to the recognition of the benefits of applying gentle manual pressure to lymphatic chains. Lymph, a clear fluid that permeates all tissues, carries nutrients from the bloodstream to cells. Unlike blood circulation, lymph circulation relies on muscle contractions from daily activities and osmosis rather than a pump mechanism.

Practitioners replicate this natural process through their movements, enhancing lymphatic circulation. Manual lymphatic drainage involves direct skin contact, with seemingly delicate touches tailored to target the lymphatic network, predominantly located superficially within the skin. These movements are rhythmic, expansive, and fluid, stimulating the epidermis and facilitating fluid entry into lymphatic vessels.

This technique includes a phase of stretching (pressure) followed by relaxation, precisely addressing lymphatic circulation.

During the initial lymphatic drainage session, efforts are made to facilitate access to specific lymph nodes. Hence, a 90-minute session is advised for this purpose. Positive effects may become evident following this initial session. In certain cases, multiple sessions in close succession may be necessary to maximize effectiveness, such as after experiencing a sprain.
