This is a very light but powerfully cleansing treatment that helps clear areas of congestion and stagnation in the body. It promotes the healthy functioning of the lymphatic system (which cleans waste and toxins from the body), and stimulates the body’s natural defence mechanisms.
It can help with fluid retention, cellulite, headaches, puffiness, and muscle stiffness. Lymphatic drainage is very effective in the treatment of skin problems like eczema and psoriasis. It also boosts the body’s immune system.
A full body treatment lasts for 2 hours, due to the slow, gentle nature of the massage, but this is not often necessary, as it can be used on specific areas of the body such as the legs where oedema is present, or in conjunction with other types of massage.
Benefits of lymphatic drainage massage include, stress relief, removal of metabolic waste, toxins and excess fluid from the body, relief from allergies, sinusitis and pre-menstrual tension, reduced inflammation, improved tissue regeneration, and pain relief.
Lymphatic drainage is a deeply relaxing, soothing treatment that calms the body and mind.
