Lymph drainage is used primarily to promote the optimal functioning of the lymphatic vessels that lead to the circulatory system. Lymph drainage techniques facilitate the removal of metabolic wastes, excess water, toxins, bacteria, large protein molecules, and foreign substances from tissue via the initial lymph vessels and the venous capillaries.

Lymph drainage relaxes the sympathetic nervous system, reduces pain, and enhances the activity of the immune system. It is effective in the treatment of a wide variety of problems, including edema, skin disorders, headache, sinus congestion, sprains and aches, stress, digestive disorders, and before and after surgery, to remove tissue congestion and minimize scar formation. It is particularly useful as part of post-mastectomy therapy, to reduce edema and fibrosis, and to relieve pain and tension.

What is the function of the Lymphatic system ?


The lymph vessel system is responsible for carrying excess water, proteins and wastes from the connective tissue back to the blood stream, and maintaining blood volume. This includes the by-products of inflammation, dead cells and toxins. During the transportation process the lymph is cleaned, filtered and concentrated, with many immune reactions occurring in the lymph nodes, where lymphocytes are harbored.

Lymphatic vessels are found throughout the body, in parallel with the capillary system. The vessels are as small in diameter as the capillaries, and the nodes are about the size of a pea. If you picture a string with knots tied in it along its length, the string is the lymph vessel, and the knots are the lymph nodes.

If the pathways become congested, damaged or severed, then fluids and toxins can build up in the connective tissue and eventually cell pathology may begin. Cellular oxygenation and nourishment is reduced, as is waste elimination. Toxins eventually penetrate the cells and create the symptoms of chronic disease. So lymph drainage can enhance recovery rates, by moving out toxins and wastes, boosting immunity and oxygenation, and reducing inflammation.

Lymph flow is stimulated by a number of elements, including internal stimulation, arterial pulse, respiration, peristalsis and exercise. Exercise is the one variable you can use yourself to stimulate lymph flow.
