Lymphatic drainage is a gentle, massage that helps rid the body of waste products and toxins, relieves fluid retention, stimulates the immune system and increases energy levels.
The lymph glands (at neck, armpits, groin, etc) are connected by a broad network of vessels which transport the fluid. Muscular movement is required to move it, as there is no ‘Heart’ to pump it. Light, rhythmic strokes, manually move lymph (containing waste substances) from the tissue spaces back to the bloodstream. The treatment helps detoxify the body and boost the immune system, transporting metabolic wastes, excess water, bacteria and toxins out of the body. The pressure is superficial, contact is with the skin not the muscle. In assisting the movement of lymph fluid, this treatment is invaluable in treatment of fluid retention, oedema during pregnancy, post surgical cosmetic surgery, hormonal imbalance, constipation & digestive disorder, lymphoedema, sinusitis & hay fever, recurring infections, migraines, arthritis, chronic fatigue, stress, and boosts your immune system.
