Certified Lymphedema Therapy

The lymphatic system is like the garbage system of the body.

Lymphedema therapy is a gentle modality which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the 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 (peristalsis) and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then beyond the lymph nodes to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system.

Lymphedema therapy (manual lymph drainage) uses a specific amount of pressure (less than 9 ounces per square inch or about 4 kPa) and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.
