Benefits of Combining Lymphatic Therapy with Flexibility Training

By : Varun Arora

After years in clinical practice working with elite athletes and active patients, I've come to understand the importance of flexibility and appreciate the many benefits of regular stretching, manual therapies like myofascial release, and lymphatic drainage techniques.

Individually, the techniques are all extremely useful to help improve outcomes and reach goals, but when used together as part of a combined protocol to improve flexibility and function they're a powerful tool.

The combination of stretching, myofascial release and lymphatic therapy helps create:

  • Increased range of motion
  • Decreased wear and tear on joints
  • Improved lymphatic and fluid flow
  • Improved posture and biomechanics
  • Reduction in aches, pains and overall stiffness
  • Potential for improved overall fitness and health
