Manual Lymphatic Drainage

The manual lymphatic drainage may be described as a special form of physiotherapeutic massage. Using distinct massage techniques along the lines of the lymphs, the lymphatic system as a whole is stimulated, thus stimulating the entire metabolism and accelerating the elimination of toxic substances.

John Fernand Marti has had significant success in applying manual lymphatic drainage to ‘swollen’ legs and ‘sweet itch’. Although this method cannot cure the underlying causes of ‘sweet itch’, it can significantly reduce its itchiness. As a result, horses refrain from scratching their bodies enabling even large-scale skin wounds to heal.
