If like me, you’ve had a go at SLD (simple lymphatic drainage) but are not 100% sure if where you’re massaging is the right place, this illustration may help.
The lymph nodes are the yellow blobs and those are the areas we need to locate in our own bodies in order to perform SLD. They can be found just below the surface of the skin, so just a light touch is needed to perform the massage and to get the lymph moving.
Also see my post about lymphatic drainage for an SLD tutorial for the arm.
For further information out more about how to perform SLD visit the Macmillan website.
