Lymphatic Drainage Massage

The Lymphatic system is our front line of defense in fighting bodily infections, detoxifying the body and transporting metabolic wastes, excess water, bacteria and toxins out of the body.Muscular movement is required to move it, as there is no “Heart” to pump it.

Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of very light massage that encourages lymph flow in the body.

Gentle manual hand circular movements is applied to pump or glide techniques that have a very soothing and relaxing effect.

It is particularly good for detoxification, after chemotherapy/radiation, reducing inflammation & swelling, blue bruising, fluid retention, or oedema, pre and post-plastic surgery and post-liposuction. It can also help with cellulite treatments, scar tissue, spider veins, redness and acne.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a gentle whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids to increase the body’s immune system.

Where on my Body is my Lymphatic System?

The lymphatic system is located directly beneath the skin.

It can be used as part of a facial, or as a whole body treatment.

When our lymphatic system is stimulated by massage, toxins are eliminated so our body works more efficiently, the immune system is boosted, and cells are supplied more readily with nutrients.

Our Lymph system needs help

The lymph system is a slow-moving, system of vessels and lymph nodes that is supplementary to the body’s system of blood circulation. The lymph system both delivers nutrients to the cells and carries away excess water, cellular waste, bacteria, viruses and toxins.
