Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Lymphatic drainage massage is a slow, rhythmic massage, which follows the path of the lymphatic system of the body. It helps to eliminate waste more efficiently, reduces swelling and helps to improve skin texture.

What is Lymph?

Lymph is a clear, yellowish fluid that flows around the body in a separate system to the blood circulation system. Lymph is essential to your immune system and helps to fight infection in that it carries white blood cells and antibodies to your tissues and organs but it also hoovers up excess fats, bacteria, dead cells, viruses and more, keeping your body free of toxins.

So, your lymphatic system keeps the toxins flushed out of the body and keeps your immune system working properly.

The benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Improving lymph drainage and flow around the body through massage can benefit you in many ways:

  •  Boosts weight loss
  •  Reduces water retention
  •  Helps the body fight infection and speeds up healing and recovery from illness
  •  Is a popular and effective treatment for cellulite
  •  Can be used in the treatment of Lymph oedema (the build-up of lymph)

It can also improve complexion by:

  •  Reducing swelling, puffiness and blotches
  •  Giving you clean, healthy pores
  •  Speeding up healing in scar tissue, for example improving the appearance of stretch marks

Today’s lifestyles put pressure on the lymphatic system. Fatty or processed foods, eating too much sugar, living in polluted areas and drinking excess alcohol all result in toxin build up, causing the lymphatic system to work harder. Lymphatic drainage massage, in combination with healthy eating and exercise, can be a way to ease the effects of our lifestyles on our bodies.
