Lymph Drainage Therapy is a gentle technique that works through the body’s lymphatic system to activate the body fluid circulation and stimulate the functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems.
The result of these actions can include reduction in edemas, detoxification of the body regeneration of tissue as well as many other benefits.
Using exacting anatomical science and distinctive manual processes, LDT enables practitioners to detect the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of the lymph flow anywhere in the body.
From there they can use their hands to perform Manual Lymphatic Mapping of the vessels to assess overall circulation and determine the best alternate pathways for draining body-fluid stagnations.
Therapists work with flat hands, using all the fingers to simulate gentle, specific wave-like movements.
