Starting in Europe in the 1970s, Manual Lymph Drainage ("MLD") since has become a primary treatment for decongestion in cases of edema, and especially for Lymphedema which prior to then was not a treatable condition. Over the years treatment and management of Lymphedema has evolved to include other decongestive measures such as compression therapy, exercise therapy and skin care management - the development of complex or combined decongestive physical therapy ("CDPT"). For many, Lymph Taping has to come to be thought of as the 5th pillar of CDPT.
The author, Josya Sijmonsma, is a Dutch physiotherapist who has been intensively involved in the lymph taping technique since its beginning in Europe over 10 years ago. This book reflects the enormous wealth of experience gained by the author practicing in the field. In addition to the instructive illustrations for a wide variety of indications, the book also covers the theoretical background of Lymph Taping in a concise and easily understandable form. This book explains the technique of taping using anatomical-physiological and also pathophysiological explanation models in a way that trained lymph therapists will easily understand. The many case descriptions make this book a vital reference work for practitioners.
