This treatment has powerful cleansing, relaxing, pain relieving and immunological effects. It is a gentle, flowing, rhythmic massage; from a well-being aspect it can be applied to a wide range of physical conditions to great effect.
It is effective in the treatment of a wide variety of problems including oedema, skin disorders, headache, sinus congestion, sprains and aches, stress, digestive disorders, and before and after surgery, to remove tissue congestion and minimize scar formation. It is particularly useful as part of post-mastectomy therapy, to reduce oedema and fibrosis, and to relieve pain and tension.
Manual lymph drainage is very gently and hence is wonderfully relaxing. The majority of my clients either fall asleep or fall into a highly relaxed state, due to the slow, gentle rhythmic motions used during the treatment.
