Foundations of Manual Lymph Drainage covers the anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology of the lymphatic system, providing key background information necessary for effective manual lymph drainage treatment. Compiled by an internationally renowned pioneer in the field of lymphology, the chapters contained in Foundations of Manual Lymph Drainage are structured according to anatomic regions, focusing on the lymphatic nodes and their tributary regions in the throat, armpit, trunk and groin. Photographs help to illustrate the lymphatic nodes and pathways, which are drawn on the human body to provide a clear picture of the structures to be treated. Designated points are numbered to help illustrate the progression of treatment in each region. Foundations of Manual Lymph Drainage also includes coverage of complete decongestive therapy (CDT).
