MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
Advanced Bodywork, Complementary Therapy
May help with
The lymphatic system is responsible for helping fluid and waste leave the body and for regulating the immune system. When the lymphatic system becomes blocked, fluid builds up and stagnates, causing the entire system to become toxic, making us feel sluggish and more susceptible to viral infections.
Stimulating this system through massage makes it work more efficiently, which in turn boosts the immune system, eliminates toxins, transports nutrients to cells and increases the metabolism.
Lymphatic drainage massage is especially useful for individuals who seem to suffer regularly from common illnesses like colds and flu. It is also recommended those who want to reduce puffiness or swelling. It has a positive effect on problem skin, cellulite, dysfunctional respiratory systems and people with low energy.
Lymphatic drainage massage can facilitate general feelings of health and vitality. As with other massage, it can help with pain from fractures, sprains and rheumatism, and it promotes the body’s own healing mechanisms.
Lymphatic drainage massage utilises very light pressure.
