Lymphatic drainage is a technique designed to stimulate the flow of lymph (a fluid that transports white blood cells, oxygen, and nutrients to tissues throughout the body). Also referred to as "manual lymph drainage" or "lymphatic massage", lymphatic drainage typically involves gentle, circular movements. Since the lymph system serves as a central part of the immune system, proponents of lymphatic drainage suggest that this technique can help treat a variety of health concerns.


     What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
  • A massage technique that combines timing, pressure and direction to stimulate lymphatic circulation and unleash the body’s natural ability to rejuvenate and resist stress.
  • It employs mild mechanical stretching of connective tissue to facilitate decongestion of the lymphatic system.
  • Improved flow of regenerative fluid promotes the clearance of toxins and faster healing of damaged tissues.

How does it work?

In basic terms, it increases lymphatic flow. Harmful substances are removed from the tissues and neutralized in the lymph nodes, and the production of lymphocytes is stimulated, enhancing immune function. Lymphatic Drainage also stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system via the relaxation effect, reducing pain by sedating the sensory nerve endings and allowing tight muscles to relax.
