Lymphatic Drainage - Arms & Legs

Lymphatic Drainage - Arms & Legs

Lymphatic drainage massage is a specialised technique that is sometimes referred to as a detox massage.  It supports your body’s internal filtration system which in turn helps to keep your immune system

healthy.


The lymphatic system helps protect us from disease & infection.  It assists in removing toxins, waste and other unwanted materials away from the body.


The system transports lymph, which is a fluid containing white blood cells that are essential for fighting infection within the body.


This is accomplished by using gentle, repetitive strokes which facilitate the lymphatic system. 

The purpose is to achieve as straight stretch which is sufficient to open the initil lymphatics and to stimulate the lymph angions.  The emphasis on pushing the lymph towards the correct nodes.


Lymphatic drainage massage is a very gentle treatment and you may feel like this is too light, especially if you are used to deeper tissue massage. The lymphatic vessels are located right under the skin, so if pressure is too firm, then we will go deeper than the vessels and will not achieve the required drainage.

Lymphatic drainage massage is beneficial for:

  • Boosting the body’s filtration system

  • Reducing stress & anxiety

  • Increasing energy

  • Boosting the immune system



Lymphatic drainage treatments could be of relevant to a wide range of individuals wishing to detox and enjoy good all-round health.


If your approach to health and fitness is not what it perhaps should be, you may feel aches, pains and even swelling (lymphedema), or risk the deterioration of vital organs and glands. This is where lymphatic drainage treatment may help.

Lymphatic drainage has cosmetic benefits also – for facial drainage please book a Holistic Facial

It is best to avoid a heavy meal for a few hours prior to this treatment and avoid alcohol completely on the day.


For your treatment you will be asked to remove clothing down to underwear and to lie on the massage table. You may need to loosen bra and straps but you will never be asked to remove pants.


On the table you will be covered by towels and possibly a blanket depending on the treatment.  Don’t worry, you will be kept warm!  You will be left alone to do this and again when it is time to get dressed.  You will never be left exposed in front of your therapist.
