The lymphatic drainage system, which provides fluid transport like the cardiovascular system, is a drainage system. Thanks to this drainage system, the plasma which cannot pass to the blood capillary from intracellular fluid is transferred to the bed. The lymphatic system consists of lymphatic vessels and tissues, by principle structure.
The lymphatic circulation is the white blood circulation which gathers oedema in the body and carries nutrients to cells and tissues.
The most prominent function of the lymphatic system is to ensure the discharge of oedema and toxins out of the body and regulation of the circulatory system. Circulatory disorders occur in individuals who work on their legs or sitting in front of a desk all the day, for a variety of reasons. This disorder affects both the blood circulation and lymphatic circulation. Many diseases occur as a result of impairment in the lymphatic circulation.
This treatment focuses on speeding up the lymphatic circulation by applying pressure at different intensities, in the direction of lymphatic flow. Thus, it helps removal of oedema and toxins off the body, partial relief of the sensation of heaviness and pain formed on legs and shaping up of the body through regulation of the circulatory system.
