Manual lymphatic drainage is a technique that is performed with the hands through very smooth, slow and repetitive movements that favor the circulation of lymph, thus improving edematous pictures, inflammation and retention of organic liquids. The lymphatic system collaborates closely with the immune system, so manual lymphatic drainage generally improves health status and plays a very beneficial role in the nervous system, in addition to specifically treating different conditions.
