Manual lymphatic drainage (ML) is a gentle method to stimulate the reflux of lymphatic loads. Lymphatic loads are among other things water, fats, dead cells, hyaluronic acids and proteins.
The therapy consists of at least four aspects:
- – Manual lymphatic drainage (ML)
- Skin care
- Compression (bandaging or kinesio-taping)
- Decongestive exercises and possibly further physiotherapeutic measures
