Description

This manual lymph drainage guide covers the anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology of the lymphatic system, providing key background information necessary for effective treatment. Chapters are structured according to anatomic regions, focusing on the lymphatic knots and their tributary regions in the throat, armpit, trunk, and groin. Photographs illustrate the lymphatic knots and lymphatic courses, which are drawn on the human body, and provide a clear picture of the structures to be treated. Designated points are numbered to illustrate the progression of treatment in each region. Also includes coverage of complete decongestive therapy (CDT).

Reviews

"This book aims to describe the scientific principles that underline manual lymph drainage."

"Treatment strokes and stroke sequences are then described for specific body areas, as well as hand placement, pressure and movement. These chapters, indeed the whole book, are extensively illustrated with photos and/or illustrations on nearly every page."

Matthew Boylan. Journal of the Australian Traditional-Medicine Society, June 2006
