Lymphatic Drainage Class (2 Days)

lymphdrainage-neu

Lymphatic drainage is a type of gentle massage, which is intended to encourage the natural circulation of the Lymph through the body. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then beyond the lymph nodes to the lymph ducts that return lymph to the cardiovascular system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure (less than 9 ounces per square inch) and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow. The lymphoid system is the part of the immune system comprising a network of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph (from Latin “

Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure (less than 9 ounces per square inch) and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow. The lymphoid system is the part of the immune system comprising a network of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph (from Latin “lympha” – water unidirectional toward the heart. Lymphoid tissue is found in many organs, mostly in the digestive system. The circulation and production system of lymphocytes, includes the spleen, thymus, bone marrow.

The blood does not directly come in contact with the parenchymal cells and tissues in the body, but constituents of the blood first exit the micro vascular exchange blood vessels to become interstitial fluid, which comes into contact with the parenchymal cells (the functional cells of an organ) of the body. Lymph is the fluid that is formed when interstitial fluid enters the initial lymphatic vessels of the lymphatic system.

The lymph is then moved along the lymphatic vessel network by either intrinsic contractions of the lymphatic passages or by extrinsic compression of the lymphatic vessels via external tissue forces (e.g. the contractions of skeletal muscles).
