Created by a physiotherapist who was charged with easing lymphoedema in cancer patients the Lymphatic drainage massage has been adapted to ease and treat symptoms of many illnesses, diseases and aesthetic conditions.
Brought to fame by celebrities like Meghan Markle an Ellie Goulding, this treatment has become noted more for the facial massage then the health effects.
Based on the lymphatic system, we will use gentle strokes to encourage the lymph fluid that flows through your body towards the lymph nodes. When the fluid is pushed through these nodes it will filter it, allow the body to reabsorb the good parts and allow the toxins to be eliminated. The lymphatic drainage massage is an ideal way to detoxify your body and increase both your metabolism and immune system.
If you are looking for an extremely gentle massage that has enormous effects then the lymphatic drainage massage is ideal as the pressure applied to your body is minimal. If you look closely at what the therapist is doing you will be that the skin will move beneath the fingers but the muscles are not involved in any way. This is because the drainage system is so delicate that any pressure can prevent the network from clearing and filtering correctly.
For this reason your therapist will use four techniques during your time on the table. These include stationary circles, the pump, the scoop and the rotary.
While you are enjoying the rhythmic, gentle and relaxing massage you can expect to be encouraged to breathe in a way that will help your massage to complete the job that you have come to us for. Deep, slow and regular breaths will help the lymph fluid to circulate.
So whether you are considering the lymphatic drainage massage for health or beauty reasons, now is the time to get your appointment booked in.
