Lymphatic Drainage Massage helps to rid the body of excess fluid and toxins and relieves swelling that blocks your lymphatic system. The fluid that surrounds all body tissues is colourless and is made by the body.
Massage gently manipulates specific areas of your body and encourages the release of extra lymph fluid which drains into the bloodstream and is discarded by the kidneys.
The most common signs that you need a Lymphatic Drainage Massage are:
- – Allergies
- – Bloating
- – Brain fog
- – Constant tiredness
- – Constipation
- – Depression
- – Digestion problems
- – Swollen lymph nodes
A Lymphatic Drainage Massage lasts about 45min to 1hr30min and is completely painless. One of the benefits is that you will likely feel amazingly rejuvenated afterwards. It is advisable to drink lots of water before the time.
Minor swelling may happen after a massage as new fluid settles back in after the massage and urine may be dark and smelly as the kidneys are expelling the toxins in the body. Drink lots of water afterwards.
You may need more than one session. Feel free to speak to your therapist if you have any questions.
