This massage is very different than the others, as therapist uses very light pressure along with soft pumping movements in the direction of the lymph nodes. Lymphatic Drainage Massage is known to have a positive effect on people with fluid retention/puffiness (oedema) and also problematic skin (including cellulite).
This is primarily achieved through gentle, rhythmical circling movements of the skin, which stimulate the contractions of the lymphatic vessels and reduce toxins in the body. Techniques are performed with hands and fingers using a light-touch, which is simulating, gentle, through a wave-like movement.
The lymphatic system is part of your body’s immune system and helps fight infection. It transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, collecting toxins on the way and flushing them out through the lymph nodes. Unlike blood, which is pumped around by your heart, the lymph system has no pump.
The pressure from your blood vessels, movement from your muscles, and massage push the lymphatic fluid around. Lymphatic drainage massage is an ideal tool to use to boost the flow and drainage of lymph around the body.
Recommended for pre and post surgeries, pregnancy swelling’s, low immune system, Sinus or as a relaxing massage.
