Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
A gentle manual art which aids the recirculation of the lymphatic flow to support the immune system, reduce swelling, eliminate toxins, and improve scarred and wrinkled skin.

Lymph Drainage Therapy is unique in that healthcare professionals learn how to palpate the lymphatic flow. As they develop their skills, they can then identify the rhythm, direction, and quality of the lymphatic flow. Advanced practitioners will be able to precisely map the lymphatic flow to find alternate pathways for drainage. Developed by Bruno Chikly, M.D., Lymph Drainage Therapy evolved from years of training in traditional medicine, Oriental medicine practices, and manual therapies.
