If you’re used to going to a massage spa or parlor to relax, there’s a good chance you’ll see a lymphatic drainage massage option on their service menu. They claim to help wash toxins from the body, boost immunity, and eliminate belly fat and bloat. Nowadays, even celebrities and other famous personalities are doing it.
But what is lymphatic drainage massage, and what does it do?
Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a gentle, skin-stretching massage technique that aids in the flow of lymphatic fluid from the body efficiently. It is not like a regular massage that you are used to, which has a deep pressure on the affected muscles. Instead, it has a very light pressure because the lymphatic system is close to the skin’s surface.
The lymphatic system is a network of tissues, vessels, and organs that work together to move colorless, watery fluid called lymph back into your circulatory system or bloodstream. It has key functions, which include:
- Maintains fluid level of the body
- Absorbs fat from the digestive tract
- Protects the body from foreign invaders and boost the immune system
- Remove waste products and abnormal cells from the lymph
Conditions That Affect the Lymphatic System
Many diseases may affect the lymphatic system’s veins, glands, and organs. Some happen during pregnancy or after. The most common diseases and disorders of the lymphatic system include the following:
- Swollen lymph nodes (Lymphadenopathy)
- Swelling or accumulation of the fluid (Lymphedema)
- Lymphatic system cancer
- Lymphatic filariasis
- Castleman disease
