What is Manual Lymph Drainage ?

Manual Lymph Drainage is an extremely gentle but effective method of removing excess swelling caused by inefficiency in the lymphatic system. The technique encourages the flow of the lymph from the affected areas by creating a pumping action which stimulates the lymphatic vessels.  You will see in the page marked "Lymphoedema" that it is one of the techniques which is used to help that condition.  However it can be useful in other ways too.  A couple of examples of this would be persistent or acute sinusitis and severe bruising.
