Manual Lymphatic Drainage by Chi Yu Wellness Centre


Hello, I’m Mami Tsang, the owner of chi yu wellness centre and complementary therapy practitioner. In this video, Ikumi, one of our practitioners, will demonstrate Manual Lymphatic Drainage. Manual lymph drainage, also called Lymphatic massage or lymphatic drainage is a massage therapy in which the practitioner uses a range of specialised and gentle rhythmic pumping techniques to move the skin in the direction of the lymph flow. Unlike some other forms of massage, lymphatic drainage utilises a very light pressure combined with soft pumping movements in the direction of the lymph nodes that uses no oils or powders. Moving the skin gently over the underlying tissues triggers the musculature of the lymph vessel system to contract more frequently – increasing the absorption of excess fluid and waste products. The therapist gently rubs, strokes, taps or pushes the skin in directions that follow the structure of the lymphatic system so that accumulated lymph fluid can drain through proper channels. Lymphatic drainage is very gentle, it is not painful has a relaxing effect.
