The Lymphatic System has no "pump," unlike the cirulatory system which has a heart. Ou can however do various things like dry brushing the skin (upward motuon toward heart) and rebounding excercises. Edgar Cayce proves to be a founding father of Lymphatic remedies ranging from Saffron tea to injesting Bed bug juice. There are also therapies available that help stimulate the lymph such as scalar light therapy and hydrocolonics.
A combination of peristalsis (a wave like contraction moving through the smooth muscle), valves, and compression from movement of nearby skeletal muscle and arteries.
The lymphatic system is composed of assorted size vessels and lymph nodes located throughout the body. There are hundreds of lymph nodes in the body whose function is to filter the lymph fluid. An important part of the body's immune system, lymph fluid contains cells that remove harmful bacteria, viruses and other undesirable substances. The lymphatic fluid system does not have a muscle similar to the heart, which would aid in "pumping" the lymphatic fluid consistently. Therefore, when the lymphatic nodes or vessels become damaged due to surgery, injury or for any other reason, gentle lymphatic drainage massage stimulates the lymphatic fluid flow. Lymph fluid is normally encouraged to flow by the body's natural motion of muscles, organs and other body parts.
The sequence of fluid flow is blood capillaries.... interstitial space or interstitial fluid..... lymphatic capillaries.... lymphatic vessels.... lymphatic ducts..... junction of the internal jugular and subclavian veins. Then what helps this whole sequence is the skeletal muscle pump and the respiratory pump.

muscular ump lymphatic pump plus the intrestitial pressure
Medical Reflexology is a non evasive therapy which reteaches the body through 7,200 nerves to heal itself. When there is an injury or condition or disease the lymphatic blood flow goes around the injury not through it. Medical reflexology manipulates the nerves in the feet to push the lymphatic blood flow through the areas in the body which are in distress and reeducates it to heal itself. The sooner you know there is a problem the better chance your body has to heal.
Blood flow through your body Water running through the pipes at your house Pumping air in a tire
That would be the lymphatic vessels. The lymphatic system is not directly tied to the main circulatory system and thus is not pumped through the body. So without a regular flow of the lymph, movement of the body helps the lymph to flow. Very few animals utilize a separate lymphatic heart to pump lymph, and that does not include human beings.
The fluid in the lymphatic system is not blood, it resembles plasma but contains some different things. This fluid is carried via the lymph nodes back to joind the blood flow at the superior vena cava.
Viscosity is defined as a measure of the resistance to flow of a fluid. Therefor, the flow of, or the passage of an object through, a viscous fluid is resisted by the fluid.
Heat relies on the flow of a fluid to transport it from the object being cooled to the surrounding environment!
muscular contractions cause movement of lymphatic fluid. Pressure changes in the thoracic cavity during respiration also aid in the movement of lymph.Elevation of affected area higher than the heart, muscle use, and compression of affected area all increase lymphatic flow.
The flow of lymph is slow because the lymphatic system has no pump.
