It is a special form of massage in physical therapy. It is mainly used to reduce swelling in different regions of the body like trunk and extremities (legs and arms) which may have been caused by surgories, trauma or injuries. It is often a recommended treatment after a tumor resection.

With this treatment the whole lymphatic system will be affected because of an improvement of the lymphvessels, especially the lymphangions. Also an shifting of the lymphfluid in skin is possible. The manual lymphmassage causes an improved blood flow much like a normal massage.
