We have previously discussed about manual lymphatic drainage (DLM). You can read the article where we tell you what it is and how it is done.
Because of that, we have received many questions about when is the ideal time to perform this treatment, so today we will tell you about its indications and contraindications.
Benefits of manual lymphatic drainage
We have already explained how this massage helps to drain toxins and excesses that are in the lymph.
This treatment generates multiple benefits both internally and externally, so it may be the answer to your problem. Check out everything a DLM does:
- Reactivates the immune system.
- It helps improve lymphatic and blood circulation.
- It acts on the parasympathetic system, producing a relaxing effect.
- Reduces inflammation and edema by normalizing blood flow.
- Improves the general appearance of the skin.
When manual lymphatic drainage is indicated
By helping to improve general circulation and reactivate the immune system, it is a perfect treatment for situations where there is pain, edema or inflammation. It is ideal to perform a DLM in these cases:
- Cellulite treatment
- Acne treatment
- Chronic fatigue
- Fluid retention and feeling of heaviness in the legs
It is also indicated after a surgical intervention to help reduce edema and contribute to healing.
When manual lymphatic massage is contraindicated – DLM
Although its benefits are many and varied, there are situations where its use is contraindicated, or must be applied with special care and the supervision of a health professional.
Absolutely contraindicated cases:
DLM should not be applied under any term
Thrombosis or blood problems
Cases with precautions
The DLM can be applied with care or avoiding certain areas.
Chronic infections, avoiding the infection area
Low blood pressure
In all cases we recommend the assistance of a professional or doctor if you have any of the conditions mentioned.
