Manual lymphatic drainage massage

The lymphatic drainage massage was developed and pioneered by Dr. Emil Vodder, Danish biologist at the beginning of the 1900s.

Manual lymphatic drainage massage

Lymphatic drainage massage is a manual massage carried out on the limbs of the patient. During lymph massage the obstructed lymph vessels are unblocked by gentle, pumping movements and the drainage of the accumulated lymph fluid is accelerated. Once the fluid accumulated in the lymphoid tissue is drained, the disorders of the lymphatic system, swellings and metabolic disturbances are eliminated and the immune system is stimulated. In the case of chronic problems it is recommended to apply a series of treatments.

The duration of the massage is approximately 1.5 hours, depending on the surface size the lymphatic drainage therapist is treating.

During the treatment and after the treatment patient feels a nice sensation; the treatment does not cause any pains.

Patients with low blood pressure might feel a slight dizziness at the end of the treatment. In this case it is recommended to stay in horizontal position and to stack the patient’s feet.
