Lymphatic Facilitation is a very light, slow and rhythmic modality. It helps jump-start the lymphatic system in the body. Lymph is clear fluid that carries water, fatty acids, proteins, as well as other components. The Lymphatic system is responsible for bringing the lymph back into the blood stream in order to balance the body’s fluids. Lymphatic Facilitation is used to help increase the healing process, remove oedema and swelling, and assists in removal of metabolic and environmental wastes, which can aid in recovery. It is a great massage for detoxification and is also good for athletes. Lymphatic massage can improve and enhance internal tissue nutrition for increased athletic performance. This modality is not meant to treat Lymphoedema.
