Manual lymphatic drainage
Manual lymphatic drainage is a tactile technique that aims to support the function of the superficial lymphatic system. This system is an important part of our immunity and is responsible for removing waste products from the body.
This technique is aimed at influencing the structures of muscles, tendons, and fascia, on which it acts with greater force and increases blood circulation. It is performed by a gentle tactile technique, during which no emulsions or oils are used.
It is a suitable method in the case of:
- swelling (excluding swelling in severe heart, kidney, and liver diseases)
- immune problems
- detoxification of the organism (unfavorable environment, contact with toxic substances, long—term use of medical drugs, etc.)
- venous problems
- water retention during hormonal problems
- pregnancy planning
- hormonal contraception
- symptoms of PMS (premenstrual syndrome)
- unfavorable genetic predispositions (venous diseases, cellulitis, gynoid obesity in family members)
- postoperative and post-traumatic conditions
- chronic fatigue, stress
- headaches, migraines, chronic rhinitis, increased leg strain (rehabilitation of athletes and hard workers, also sedentary jobs)
- comprehensive prevention of health problems
After manual lymphatic drainage, it is recommended to rest and drink at least 2 liters of fluids on the day of treatment.
