Feeling as if your energy has been permanently drained?
Lymph Drainage Therapy may begin the process of restoring
the flow of your energy.
Lymph Drainage Therapy
Lymph Drainage Therapy massage uses gentle and firm pressure to restore the flow of lymphatic fluids. Stagnant lymph fluid contains cellular toxins, which must be continually removed from tissues and organs to maintain health and vitality.
Training in Lymph Drainage Therapy
The Chikly Health Institute provides training in all levels of Lymph Drainage Therapy. The first class ensures proficient use of the techniques and sequences for addressing Lymph issues in the full body and the head. This training also demonstrates how to work on an isolated organ, such as the Liver to drain those Lymphatic tissues. Carol will take the second class in the spring of 2024, with the plan to take one or two classes every year.
About Lymph Drainage Therapy
The Lymphatic System removes the waste products from cells, transporting them into the circulatory system, then to the liver and kidneys. It is an essential part of the Immune system. When the environment around your cells is clean, they are healthier. If stagnant lymph lingers around your cells, then diseases and aging are more likely.
The Lymphatic System functions poorly when the tissues are damaged by surgery, trauma, burns, significant swelling, stress and aging. It may also be damaged by chemotherapy and radiation used during cancer treatments.
Lymph Drainage Therapy is a hands-on method used to improve and maintain proper functioning of the lymphatic system. It was developed by Bruno Chikly, MD, DO. and is based on the latest scientific research.
Lymph Drainage Therapy is the first technique that enables practitioners to detect and palpate the specific rhythm, direction, depth, and quality of the lymph flow anywhere in the body. Skilled practitioners with developed listening skills can practice Manual Lymphatic Mapping (MLM) of the lymphatic vessels.
LDT practitioners use their hands to assess and enhance overall circulation and determine the best alternate pathways for draining stagnant body fluid (lymph, interstitial, synovial fluid, etc.). Therapists work with flat hands, using all the fingers to simulate gentle, specific wave-like movements. These subtle manual maneuvers activate lymph and interstitial fluid circulation as well as stimulate the functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems.
