Is Lymphatic Drainage Massage the Solution to Our Inflammation Crisis?
"Lymph drainage can remove fluid, extravasated cells, including neutrophils, macrophages and lymphocytes; and inflammatory factors such as bradykinin, histamine and prostaglandins from the site of inflammation to the lymph nodes and to secondary lymphoid organs.
The lymphatic system thereby contributes to the decrease of inflammatory response. In cases of chronic inflammation, lymphatic vessels help to resolve proinflammatory cells from the site of inflammation."
