Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic drainage is form of massage, The lymphatic system is responsible for helping fluid and waste leave the body, and for regulating the immune system. When the lymphatic system, comprising tiny vessels and nodes, becomes blocked, fluid builds up and stagnate, causing the entire system to become toxic. This makes us feel sluggish and become more susceptible to viral or contagious diseases (see below for more info).
Lymphatic Drainage massage stimulates this system by clearing blockages, thereby eliminating toxins and allowing freer and more efficient transport of nutrients to cells. In turn, this boosts the immune system and increases metabolism.
Lymphatic Drainage is a form of massage. Unlike some other forms of massage, it utilises a very light pressure combined with soft pumping movements in the direction of the lymph nodes. The process can take from 30 minutes (when just concentrating on localised problem areas), to two hours for a whole-body treatment.
