Your lymphatic system carries your immune cells, removes the excess fluid in your tissues, transports fatty acids and generally does all kinds of vital functions to keep you healthy. The thing is, the lymph doesn't have a big pump like the blood has your heart. It mostly moves while you move. If you don't move a lot, or are always on your feet, it can use a hand (or two) getting around. Manual lymphatic drainage pumps the excess fluid in your body toward the heart to clean your immune system and get the edema pooling in awkward places redistributed where it needs to be. Lymphatic Drainage Technique is great for edema, general health, detox, cleanses, fasts and excess "water weight."
