Lymphatic drainage involves the use of gentle, hands-on maneuvers to assess the lymphatic system and simulate wave-like movements with a pressure starting at about the weight of a nickel. This process works to activate fluid circulation and stimulate the working of the immune system.The lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to clear toxins and stagnant fluids from all parts of our body, to detoxify and filter out foreign substances and maintain a healthy immune system.
