Example text

On the anterior aspect, the lymph vessels travel from the lateral towards the medial region, and the lymph effleurage is carried out in the same direction. Lymph massage—intermittent pressure This movement is different from the usual massage techniques in that it is applied using an intermittent pump-like pressure. Only the fingers and the palm of the hand are used; the thenar and hypothenar eminences do not make THE MASSAGE TECHNIQUES 41 contact with the tissues. A small degree of pressure is applied for less than a second and removed completely for the same period.

When muscles contract, they cause the lymph vessels to be compressed against the deep fascia planes; this has the effect of pumping the lymph forward. The squeezing action of petrissage provides a similar compression for the lymph vessels. 4. Fat emulsification. When performed vigorously, petrissage is likely to have the effect of emulsifying the fat in the superficial connective tissue cells. In this emulsified state the fat globules have a better chance of entering the lymphatic system and also of being metabolized.

Reduction of oedema. The pump-like action of kneading is likely to aid the flow of lymph and reduce oedema. Draining the interstitial fluid will also remove waste products from the tissues. 3. Increased circulation. The local circulation is improved through a reflex effect, which causes vasodilatation of the superficial arterioles. Transportation of nutrients to the tissues is therefore increased because of the enhanced blood perfusion, and the venous flow of the blood is also enhanced by the mechanical action of the movement.
