Lymphatic drainage assists in normalizing and then maintaining a balance between fluid retention and its proper circulation in the body.

Combined decongestive therapy (CDT) helps to manage patients with lymphoedema and venous insufficiency oedema, using a combination of manual lymphatic drainage, exercise therapy and compression bandaging. Patients suffering from lymphodaema either from surgery, radiation or congenital malformation can be treated.

Manual Lymphatic drainage can also be used in the care of patients with conditions such as scar tissue, burns, ulceration wounds, as well as dermatological conditions (including rosacea), orthopaedic problems (including frozen shoulder), arthritic conditions, whiplash and certain forms of migraines.

In addition to increasing lymph flow, manual lymphatic drainage is effective in treating acute sporting injuries by reducing swelling which relieves pain. The techniques have an analgesic calming effect due to the rhythmic massage like movements.

Examples of conditions include:
Primary Lyphoedema – congenital in origin, which usually requires the use of compression garments.
Secondary – non congenital in origin including post surgery, inflammatory conditions, paralysis & trauma.

Specific conditions that respond to Lymphatic drainage include:
Tinnitus – if the cause is due to oedema around auditory nerve,
Musculoskeletal trauma,
Stress – lymphatic drainage has a calming effect on the sympathetic nervous system.
Chronic sinusitis,
Haematoma and oedema in the region around the eyes,
