Lymphatic Decongestive Therapy

Lymphatic Decongestive Therapy is a combination of manual lymph drainage, layered compression bandaging, skincare and specific exercises. The aim of is to decongest the tissues of stagnant fluid. The integrity of the skin improves with the improved functioning and drainage of the lymphatic system, thus enhancing the overall status of the immune system. Specific movements of the skin stimulate contractions of the lymphatic vessels. This allows for a greater amount of metabolic waste products,
excess fluid and other valuable components to be removed from the tissues by the lymphatic system for eventual elimination or redistribution back to the vascular system.
