Manual lymphatic drainage is a style of massage that acts directly over the lymphatic system. This system is in charge of the elimination of toxins in the body and of keeping the immune system in good working order. The effect of these massages takes place at the level of the skin since it stimulates circulation. Additionally, they combat cellulite preventing liquid retention.
Manual lymphatic drainage is a high quality therapy used to eliminate cellulite due to the fact that it not only provides the benefits of traditional massages, it also eliminates toxins and increases the immune response of the body.
