Manual Lymphatic drainage is a type of a gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to the lymph nodes and then beyond the lymph nodes to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lyphh drainage uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.
