Lymph Drainage Therapy

Lymph Drainage Therapy

Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT) is unique in that health-care professionals learn how to palpate the lymphatic flow. As they develop their skills, they can then identify the rhythm, direction, and quality of the lymphatic flow. Advanced practitioners will be able to precisely map the lymphatic flow to find alternate pathways for drainage.

Developed by Bruno Chikly, MD, Lymph Drainage Therapy evolved from years of training in traditional medicine, Asian medical practices, and manual therapies. (Definition provided by The Upledger Institute.)

But have you ever considered a lymph massage to help your body stave off the blues of winter illness?
