MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE POST SURGERY MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE A manual lymphatic drainage massage uses a gentle technique that will work directly on the lymph vessels with a mild stretching on the wall of the lymph collectors. A manual lymphatic drainage massage can increase lymph fluid flow 20 times within the body. Manual lymphatic drainage can be incorporated into any massage to help decongest tissue for faster recovery by encouraging the circulation of body fluids, enhancing the immune system, balancing the autonomic nervous system and increasing the contraction of the lymph collectors.
