Manual lymphatic drainage

What is it?

Manual lymphatic drainage is a therapeutic technique that involves manual stimulation of the lymphatic system to improve the circulation of lymph, a clear fluid found inside the body’s lymphatic vessels.

The aim of manual lymphatic drainage is to improve the elimination of accumulated fluids and toxins from the body’s tissues, and to reduce swelling and oedema. This therapeutic technique can be used in the treatment of a variety of conditions, such as lymphoedema, cellulitis, arthritis, sinusitis, migraines and fibromyalgia, among others.

How do we work?

Manual lymphatic drainage is performed using a series of gentle, rhythmic and repetitive movements that stimulate the flow of lymph through the lymphatic vessels and into the lymph nodes.

  • Lymphatic drainage usually lasts no less than an hour. Depending on the patient’s needs.

The number of manual lymphatic drainage sessions varies according to the individual needs of each patient and is determined by the trained therapist. Typically, 1 to 5 sessions per week can be performed, depending on the severity of the problem and how the patient’s body responds to the therapy.
