What is a Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
A Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a gentle, rhythmical massage treatment performed by a specially trained lymphatic massage therapist to stimulate the circulation of lymph fluid around the body. This helps to rapidly speed up the removal of wastes and toxins from a sluggish lymphatic system
What to expect from a Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
As with any treatment, you will get most benefit if you give yourself enough time to get to your appointment, so you can settle and begin to relax before your treatment starts.
Lymphatic drainage massage takes place in a heated room. Warmth is an important factor in increasing lymphatic flow. You are also likely to be more relaxed if you're not cold. Your therapist will usually carry out lymphatic drainage massage with you on a massage table, while you're draped in discreetly placed towels.
Your therapist will work her way up from your feet. Lymphatic drainage massage uses very light pressure, as well as long, gentle, rhythmic strokes and soft pumping movements in the direction of the lymph nodes. The main lymph nodes are in the neck, armpits and groin.
Lymphatic drainage can leave you feeling exhausted. You may want to have a lay down, or at the very least, a very undemanding schedule for the rest of the day. Give your body time to ease back into activity.
Lymphatic drainage is about flushing out your system, so may also leave you feeling really thirsty, so you’ll need to be drinking plenty of water to allow the process to work.
One of the other things you can do for your lymphatic system is to be more active. Even the most gentle of activity will help encourage a healthy lymph flow, as movement of the muscles exerts pressure on the lymphatic vessels and keeps them moving.
What are the benefits of a Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

Do I have to do anything after my treatment?
