If the lymphatic system isn’t working properly, the main sign/symptom is usually oedema (tight swollen tissue). Swelling that is caused by a poorly working lymphatic system can result from many things such as long distance traveling which causes the ankles and legs to become very tight and puffy. Some medical conditions also cause oedema. A poor diet or eating too much starch and junk foods can also cause our bodies to become sluggish resulting in poor lymph flow.
Lymphatic drainage is simply an intervention that encourages proper lymph to drain properly. Lymphatic drainage is usually administered as a stand-alone procedure or incorporated in massage treatment. It’s also worth noting that lymphatic massage differs depending on factors such as; the condition being treated. The aim of the massage, however, remains the same; to boost lymph flow.
Since lymphatic vessels are usually fine and located near the skin, lymphatic drainage isn’t a deep treatment. Stimulation usually targets the closest lymph nodes initially to prepare them to handle lymph that will be sent to them. The massage aims at clearing and moving lymph towards the heart. Lymphatic drainage feels very gentle, however, it is very effective.

Lymphatic drainage is crucial because of the health risks associated with having poor lymph flow. For instance, since lymph carries white blood cells around the body performing vital defense functions, poor lymph flow compromises the functions of the immune system exposing the body to serious health risks. Furthermore, most people don’t exercise and maintain healthy diets constantly. This factor alone makes lymphatic drainage ideal for almost anyone.
