Description of treatment:
Every day we come into contact with many toxic substances that we breathe with the air, take with food, or that manage to enter our body through the pores of the skin. Our body is naturally able to detoxify and thus protect its organs from the harmful effects of these toxins. However, if the exposure, as in our day, is very high, targeted detoxification, even of a manual type, can be useful, such as manual lymphatic drainage.
The lymphatic system is fundamental, as well as for the proper functioning of the immune system, also for the detoxification process of our body since this liquid, which flows parallel to the blood, contributes to the removal of the "waste" that is found inside the body (even those produced by normal metabolism) by collecting liquids and waste materials and then sending them to the main excretory organs responsible for disposal: liver, kidneys, lungs, etc.
One can therefore understand well how a correct functioning of the lymphatic system is essential to enjoy good health while a lymph congested by too many substances to be disposed of can instead create problems for us. It was in the 1920s that Dr. Emil Vodder decided to devise a body technique that could support the lymph in its functions, manual lymphatic drainage (DLM) was born.
This technique works in a very rhythmic and delicate way favoring the flow of lymph in all the tissues of the body, thus helping to purify, decongest and, in case of edema (i.e. an accumulation of liquids), reduce pain and swelling. Through lymphatic drainage the tissues can get rid of excess water, bacteria and viruses, toxins, metabolic waste, etc.
This is not a painful but rather very pleasant and relaxing technique that does not cause any type of redness on the skin and is carried out without using any type of oil or cream.
