A manual lymphatic drainage is a type of massage which helps to boost the ability of your body to detoxify.
If you’re sluggish, or wake feeling like you’ve not slept properly even though you have, then it may be that your lymphatic system isn’t working optimally.
Your lymphatic system is a series of really fine capillaries which lead into clusters of nodes and glands. Fluid runs through this system which contains all the antibodies you need to fight infection as well as the toxic waste. It flows by muscle movement, it isn’t pumped, which is why a manual lymphatic drainage massage uses a pumping actions.
It’s also why when you’re sick, you’ll say your glands are up, because your lymphatic system becomes congested with toxins it’s unable to drain.
