Skin Drainage

We speculate that the technique LPG ® finds its action at the cutaneous level on the vascularisation and the physiological drainage of the skin.

The Skin Drainage


Lympho-scintigraphy investigations of normal subjects showed that the appropriate and skill-full use of the technique LPG® potentially improves the physiological lymphatic drainage.


Masses in the connective tissue

The technique LPG ® can potentially improve the lymphatic drainage. Indeed, fibrous masses in the connective tissue in response to ageing, trauma, or a non-drained interstitial oedema can be freed through the technique LPG ®.
The use of the technique LPG® as an adjunct to the manual lymphatic drainage is illustrated opposite.

post-surgical oedema

The patients s/p mastectomy can show intra- and extra-fascicular fat accumulation, which could explain the difficulties encountered in the traditional physical therapy treatment (lymphatic manual drainage, presso-therapy, and bandaging).
The post-surgical oedema and fibrosis that remain despite the use of manual lymphatic drainage, presso-therapy, and bandaging (strapping) could be taken over by the technique LPG ®.

Opposite, you will find scientific support to combining manual lymphatic drainage and the technique LPG® in cases of post-surgical oedema and fibrosis.

Hence, in the cases of fibro-fatty aggregation we support combining the LPG ® and the conventional approach of treating lymph-oedema.

Furthermore, the technique LPG® can be valuable in the treatment of the common cellulite (orange skin), which consists of the cutaneous association of oedema, fibrosis, and sclerosis.
