The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body's ability to drain stagnant fluids, detoxify, regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and foreign substances, and maintain a healthy immune system. It is a complex system comprised primarily of lymph vessels and nodes working in cooperation to accomplish these tasks.
Unlike the circulatory system, which uses the pumping of the heart to circulate its blood flow, lymph vessels rely upon hundreds of tiny muscular units (lymphangions) contracting throughout the body to propel lymph vessels to transport numerous substances (i.e. proteins, toxins, hormones, fatty acids, immune cells) to lymph nodes, which can then process them. The action of these muscular units can be hindered or stopped, however, due to surgery, trauma, burns, infections, sustantial swelling, fatigue, stress or age. When lymph circulation stagnates, fluids, proteins, cells and toxins accumulate, and cellular functing is significantly compromised and pain can occur in segments of the body or entire body as in Fibromyalgia.

Due to the nature and role of the lymphatic system, LDT can prove beneficial in the correction of numerous conditions as well as in preventive health maintenance.
In essence, Lymph Drainage Therapy works to help recirculate body fluids, stiumulate functioning of the immune system, and balance of autonomic nervous system. This is why you will find a wide range of practitioners using LDT.
