Lymph Drainage Therapy works to help recirculate body fluids, stimulate functioning of the immune system, and balance the autonomic nervous system. It is shown that when these actions are accomplished, the results may be:
Reduction in edemas (swelling) and of many origins
Relief of chronic and subacute inflammation and conditions such as acne, eczema and allergies
Immune system stimulation for preventive and therapeutic effects
Regeneration of tissues from burns and pre and post surgical scarring and anti-aging effects
Detoxification of the body
Relief of chronic pain
Deep relaxation to aid insomnia, depression, stress, loss of vitality and loss of memory
Relieve voluntary or involuntary muscle hypertonus
Reduction in the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia
How Lymph Drainage Therapy is Performed The LDT process involves the use of gentle manual
maneuvers to aid in the recirculation of lymph fluids.
While the exact amount of pressure applied depends on the
area and pathology involved, it averages an extremely
light five grams, or the weight of a nickel. Using this
gentle pressure, trained therapists are able to detect the
specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of the lymph
flow anywhere in the body.
