Lymph massage - drainage

Lymph massage – drainage

If disorders appear in the functioning of the lymphatic system, water builds up in the tissues leading to the possible formation of oedemas. The aim of lymph massage therapy is to restore a balance between the quantity of accumulated water in the tissues and the performance of the lymph ducts. Danish physiotherapist Emil Vodder developed the method of manual lymph massage 50 years ago in Cannes. Stroking, pumping movements drain the lymph node, and speed up the off-channelling of surplus lymphatic fluid.
