This is a fantastic way to incorporate some great techniques to drain lymph into the massage modalities and routines that you already use. There is no special equipment to purchase; all you need are your hands!
There has been much research done about the benefits of lymphatic drainage. It has been proven to be effective on swollen feet and ankles, it increases circulation, and it keeps the body performing as it should.
This text takes a little time to discuss the anatomy of the lymphatic system, what it does, and how it came into being. There are fabulous diagrams that make it easy to visualize the authors’ points. There are also step by step routines that address lymphatic drainage on specific body parts, and how to assess the success of those routines.
If you serve a somewhat more mature clientele who experience pain and circulation issues, this is a modality that will keep clients coming to you over and over again!
