Lymph drainage is a type of massage which uses techniques found to help increase the flow of the lymph fluid. Studies have been done to show that it is possible that this method can increase the flow to up to 20 times faster. The Lymphatic system is frequently overlooked though it is key in transporting waste products from the cells and interstitial fluids and producing and transporting antibodies and therefore a vital part of immune function.
