Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic drainage massage combines light massage with gentle pumping movements. The rhythmic pressure of the gentle pumping movements creates an increase and decrease in pressure which assists the lymph flow and helps transport the fluid that has leaked out of the tissue back into the bloodstream.
Lymphatic drainage massage helps relieve pain and swelling. Lymphatic congestion can occur as a result of burns, injury, prolonged periods of immobility due to illnesss, surgery of any type including cosmetic and plastic surgery and certain other conditions. Many plastic surgeons recommend lymphatic drainage massage post operatively to hasten recovery and reduce the pain and swelling that results from surgery.
Lymph nodes are found throughout the body and in the limbs but predominately in the neck, pecs (underarms) and groin. Your massage therapist will always start with the nodes around your neck, collarbone and pecs (underarms). Our fully qualified lymphatic drainage massage therapist is Dayne. You need to allow at least one hour for a lymphatic drainage massage.
