Lymph drainage massage is a slow rhythmic massage, which follows the path of the lymphatic system of the body. It helps to eliminate waste more efficiently, reduces swelling and helps to improve skin texture.
A lymph is a clear, yellowish fluid that flows around your body, carrying white blood cells and antibodies to your tissues and organs. They are essential to your immune system to help fight infection.
Your lymphatic system’s job is to flush toxins away and keep to keep the body healthy, and drainage massage boosts the flow of lymph around your body, refreshing your immune system and flushing out toxins.
It can also improve your complexion, reduce swelling, puffiness, blotches, skin pores, stretch marks, and can speed up healing in scar tissue.
Before any massage treatment, avoid large meals or alcohol. It’s also a good to drink plenty of water, which will help your body to flush the toxins out of your body.
Lymph drainage can leave you feeling exhausted and also leave you really thirsty, so ensure you have plenty of fresh water to hand and to achieve maximum benefit, please book this treatment on a day when you can relax afterwards.
