Activates circulation of your body and legs
Manual lymphatic drainage, or manual lymphatic massage, is a therapeutic technique that involves massaging certain areas of the body to stimulate the lymphatic system. At our clinic, located on the seafront of Marbella, we are experts in lymphatic drainage, and we know that, in order to properly understand the benefits of this technique, we first have to understand what the lymphatic system is and why it is so important to keep it in the best condition.
So what’s the lymphatic system? It is an essential part of our body’s immune system. It is a system similar to the circulatory system but which, instead of spreading blood throughout the body, it distributes a substance called lymph from tissues into the bloodstream.
Lymph is a clear to whitish liquid laden with proteins, salts, minerals and other substances whose function is to protect us and fight infections, as well as get rid of toxins and other residual substances and waste.
However, just as the circulatory system pumps blood throughout the body, the lymphatic system works by blood pressure and the very movement of our body and muscles.
Lymphatic massages improve the circulation of the lymph and, with it, our lymphatic system is also boosted, in addition to other benefits that we will tell you about a little later.
