What is lymphatic drainage massage?
The lymphatic system is also known as the second circulatory system. It takes all waste products the body doesn’t want and passes it around the body to be disposed of. The lymphatic system gets blocked easily from pollution, drugs, alcohol, smoking, lack of exercise and the system can become sluggish. The immune defenses are lowered and it becomes easier to get colds, flu, cold sores, etc.
How does it help?
Lymphatic massage helps with oedema or swelling from injuries and operations as well as recovery from colds and flu. It can also help with energy levels. If problems with low energy levels or frequent illness occur, lymphatic massage may help to resolve these issues.
Is it painful?
Lymphatic massage is not painful. It is done through small pumping and stretching motions that can be very relaxing.
