Biodynamic Lymphatic Therapy
Biodynamic lymphatic therapy is intended by proponents to encourage the natural circulation of the lymph through the body with the therapist ability to sense the organic force or energy in the lymphatic system. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then beyond the lymph nodes to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system. The sensitivity of the therapist supports the natural flow and potency in the fluids of the lymphatic system and encourages balance and drainage.
Biodynamic Lymphatic Drainage is a modality of boosting the vitality of the immune system through a series of palpations which assist with the movement the lymphatic fluid to lymph nodes The therapist rides on the surface tension of the lymph, sensing the energetics of the lymph fluid and its rate of flow. The lymph is encouraged to move by the intention of the therapy. Deep diaphragmatic breathing assists in the process and supports the Health of the body, as it brings new nutrients to the tissues and moves toxic cellular waste into the lymph nodes from the interstitial fluid between cells.
