Manual lymphatic drainage assists the body with the removal of metabolic waste, excess fluid, bacteria, large protein molecules and foreign substances from the body’s tissues. This helps to relieve fluid congestion and restore the body’s natural fluid levels. The massage technique uses light, rhythmic pumping movements intended to mimic the natural action of the body’s lymphatic system. This stimulates the lymphatic vessels which carry substances vital to the defence of the body and removes metabolic waste products.
The first visit will include a consultation and the therapist will outline the number and frequency of sessions. Each Lymphatic Drainage session will last approximatlely one hour, full body session 90 minutes.
Lymphatic drainage massage can be included as part of a relaxing, cleansing and detoxifying program to improve general health and well-being.
