Lymphatic drainage is one of the physiotherapy activities. Using the therapist’s hands or other devices created for this purpose, lymph circulation is improved. Thus, diseases resulting from congestive, inflammatory, oncotic and lymphatic edema are prevented. The pace of the massage is very slow (about 10-15 movements per minute), and the techniques used are performed smoothly and gently. Treatments can take place up to several times a day
It is mostly performed for lymphatic stasis, edema resulting from surgery (such as after thyroid surgery or mastectomy), diabetes.
