Manual lymphatic drainage is a technique originally used by hand to remove excess lymph from body regions. It tries to stimulate the lymph nodes, which should improve the removal. Originally manual lymphatic drainage was used exclusively in people with severe diseases of the lymphatic system or after major surgery. Meanwhile, the MLD is also used more and more for cosmetic purposes and in the wellness.
The lymphatic drainage originally performed exclusively manually with the hands and is reserved for medical professionals such as physiotherapists and masseurs. Meanwhile, modern technology and science of recent years have succeeded in developing technical products that allow machine implementation. The lymph nodes are stimulated before and during the lymphatic drainage by means of intermittent, wave-like movement of the machine and by inflating and the displacement of the pressure chambers, the lymph fluid is brought upwards. This is done from the feet up to the hips where there are large lymph nodes.
The fluid is excreted through the kidneys, bladder and part of the skin, which the customer usually does not notice.
In principle, everyone. However, there are limitations that must be considered.
Accordingly, patients with malignant tumors, acute heart disease, open wounds and cutaneous roses and feverishly accompanied bacterial and viral disease patients should not be treated. Otherwise, lymphatic drainage could be used to promote such pathological germs in the body or cause cardiac overload in acute heart disease. Also, should be dispensed with fresh fractures on an application.
The lymphatic drainage by lymphatic drainage machine lasts 30 minutes. The customer lies on a soft and comfortable couch in one of the treatment rooms. During this time, customers can relax and unwind. How about a nice book or good music?
No, many customers report that machine lymphatic drainage is a very pleasant method and that the pressure is barely noticeable.
The great thing about the lymphatic drainage is that the lymphatic system is activated for several hours even after a treatment and increasingly removes lymphatic fluid. The effect is impressive!
When removing a tattoo, it often comes to a soft tissue swelling, which often bothers the customer. Once the acute inflammatory phase is complete, lymphatic drainage can help remove excess tissue fluid.
Lymphatic drainage can help to reduce tissue swelling even after a fresh tattoo.
