There has always been fascination with the Fountain of Youth. Some people say that it is in your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. Today many people turn to manual lymphatic drainage massage to release the Fountain of Youth, which is also better known as the lymphatic system.

Lymphatic drainage massage is a light touch technique with gentle rhythmical hand movements to aid the body’s ability to drain excess fluid, detoxify, regenerate tissue, and maintain a healthy immune system.

Lymphatic drainage massage is particularly helpful following surgery such as joint replacement, cancer and cosmetic surgery. During surgery, the fluid balance in the body is disrupted.  Anesthetic and tissue injury can overwhelm the normal channels to remove excessive toxins or wastes and swelling usually occurs. Lymphatic drainage massage can increase the range of movement by decreasing fluid in the joints; it aids draining bruises, swelling and anesthetic after cosmetic surgery. It can promote less visible, seamless and softer scarring. Lymphatic drainage massage can also decrease risks of infection and colds, as it boosts the immune system.

When combined with other techniques, lymphatic drainage massage is a powerful tool to increase the recovery rate after strenuous exercise, as it aids in the removal of metabolic wastes such as lactic acid and oedema.

I read articles where doctors say that effective manual lymphatic drainage massage definitely improves surgical outcomes and speed up recovery.
