If you’ve never gotten a Lymphatic Drainage Massage or a spa treatment to help with Lymphatic Drainage, it’s a gentle massage that helps to encourage the movement of lymph fluids around the body. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps the body remove waste and toxins from its tissue. It’s a crucial part of the immune system.
A Lymphatic Drainage Massage uses specific massage techniques to help move fluid around the body more effectively. It’s not like a regular Swedish or Deep Tissue massage that massages the muscles. Lymphatic Drainage Massages are very light pressure because of how close the lymphatic system is to the surface of our skin. Massage Therapists start with the central part of the body then works towards the extremities.
