Lymphatic massage and massage therapy

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of massage based on preliminary evidence which is hypothesized to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. (...) Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow. (from Wikipedia, 11.2018)
