Therapeutic manual lymphatic drainage
Manual lymphatic drainage is a gentle and slow therapeutic massage to stimulate the circulation of the lymph through the organism to the ganglions to facilitate the removal of excess liquids and metabolic waste. Thus, manual lymphatic drainage:
- Accelerates cicatrisation
- Reduces the risks of infection.
- Reduces oedema, which is a source of pain and inflammation.
In case of lymphoedema, which is notably one of the major consequences of breast cancer treatment, manual lymphatic drainage makes it possible to redirect the lymph to other channels and other ganglions.
Manual lymphatic drainage can also be considered to treat chronic venolymphatic insufficiency of the lower members (problem of blood and lymphatic liquid returning to the heart).
