In an earlier paper we have shown that manual lymph drainage massage of edematous limbs can result in the excretion of up to 1 liter urine derived from reabsorption and transport from the interstitial fluid, simultaneously with significant changes in the excretion of urinary neurohormones. These findings indicated that histamine and serotonin were released from the edematous tissue and that circulation improved through increased output of adrenaline and noradrenaline. The results achieved led us to assume that similar changes may have occurred in the blood during treatment, and induced us to study the effect of manual lymphdrainage on various blood constituents and urinary neurohormones.
