Hi I am Trish from Healthy Body massage of Orlando you can visit our web page at Today for Expert Village I am going to talk to you about lymphatic drainage for detoxification and lymphatic drainage for when you have to have complete decongestive therapy. Both part of the lymphatic drainage is what I have showed you earlier; is drained body system but when you have complete decongestive therapy because you have either swelling of your leg or your arm there is also compression garments placed on. First we usually start with elastic bandages that we wrap after the lymphatic treatment drainage. This is to keep the fluid from falling back into the area that we have released through the body. The second is compression garments are put on after the patient has received several treatments and has shown viability and that's kept on again during the night. The third thing we do for the patient is we show them exercises that help keep the fluid from going back in the area. Say if you have lymphodemia of the arm if you are in a standing position if you lift your arm above your head gravity will help hold that fluid down. With the leg you have your ankle pumps and we teach patients to go up with this and just as you're told when you have swelling keep your legs above your heart we would have a client doing exercises that lift the leg above the heart level and help the fluid move down into the trunk to be joined with the circulatory system.
