The lymphatic system is made up of vessels that form a network within the body collecting fluids that leak out of the blood system and return it to the circulatory system. This fluid or lymph is pumped back to the heart and into the kidneys for cleansing and excretion and the process starts over. It is like the Sewer system of the body, collecting and disposing of waste.
The lymphatic system unlike the blood circulatory system does not have a pump and depends on your movement/activities and the pumping of the heart.
For healthy persons, it is advisable to get lymphatic massage occasionally to help your system to cleanse. Compared to ‘normal’ massage, Lymphatic Massage is very light but deeply relaxing.
On the other hand, Lymphedema Therapy or Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT) is a specialized technique that is used on people with lymphedema. The light pumping technique used in this modality helps the lymphatic system to ‘push’ or pump fluid towards the heart for excretion. Most people needing Lymphedema therapy will have ‘swollen’ limbs – arms or legs. Sometimes the swelling maybe in the face. Sometimes the affected areas may need to be wrapped in special bandages to assist to flush out the fluid.
