RE: Lymphatic Drainage

if the assignment is jus for muscles maybe its just talking about wen u work on the body circ of blood and therefore lymph is increased and therefore lymph drainage which would aid in waste removal in muscle tissue
prob completly wrong:D

Or it could be to do with the pump effect that muscles have on the lymphatic system in assisting the drainage of lymph from tissue areas eg. skin that is oedemous.

RE: Lymphatic Drainage

hello there

lymphatic drainage is through massage, as the muscles relax during a massage,the lymphatic vessels open to stimulate the flow of lymph thereby assisting drainage, basically what it does is gets rid of any waste products that should,nt be in your system by draining the lymphatic glands it expels any waste
think of it a a pool of mud if you swirl it around the water comes to the top, ok, and if you let it settle it just sets again so by doing the massage it just gets rid of waste

i hope this helps:)
