Manual Lymphatic Drainage Q & A
Q- What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?
A- A very light rhythmic series of strokes on the skin that allow the accumulated lymph fluid to drain through the lymph vessels to the proper ducts.
Q- What is Lymphedema?
A- Lymphedema is a serious condition of localized swelling caused by a compromised lymphatic system.  Lymphatic vessels carry wastes, proteins, water and fats to  the lymph nodes, where it is then filtered out. Removal of, or damage to a lymph node in the body can impair the flow of lymph resulting in edema.  When fluid builds up, it can cause abnormal swelling and pain. It also can provide a breeding ground for bacteria. Lymphedema is a life-long condition that cannot be cured, but can be managed with treatments, such as lymphatic drainage massage.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is not for those clients with unmanaged congestive heart failure, acute infection, or acute deep vein thrombosis.
