Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Lymphatic drainage massage is a gentle, rhythmic massage that encourages lymph flow throughout the body. It helps reduce swelling and chronic inflammation, flush out toxins, improve the health of skin, and support overall wellness. Developed in France over 100 years ago, this natural form of healing stimulates the underlying lymphatic system to encourage its functions.

The massage will utilize slow strokes and gentle pressures on skin to increase movement of waste materials toward the body’s filtration organs and encourage the delivery of oxygen-rich blood from healthy tissues back into circulation.

With continued treatments, this can help reduce fluid retention and promote relaxation for improved physical and emotional balance.

What to Expect

Your therapist will review your medical history to ensure you don’t have any contraindications.

When it’s time for your massage, a very light touch is used. The purpose of this type of bodywork is to get the lymph fluid moving into areas of the body where there are more lymph nodes. No other techniques or lotions are used during your session.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this type of massage painful?

Not at all; that’s because super-light, gentle, rotating and pumping motions are used to move the lymph fluid.

Who can benefit?

This type of massage is helpful for those who have swelling after surgery or an injury, as well as people with fibromyalgia.

How often should I come in for a session?

The frequency interval is what works best for you. If you have edema, however, our therapist encourages you to come in at least once a week.

How long does it take to get results?

It depends on what health challenge you’re experiencing. For people with an autoimmune disease or diabetes, it can take a little longer to get results.
