Lymphatic Drainage Massages

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is based on the idea that lymph vessels (lymph channels) and lymph nodes can be blocked or congested and can be stimulated with certain massage techniques to start “flowing” and “filtering” again to clear out wastes, bacteria and toxins on one hand, and reinsert healthy substances back in the blood circulation system on the other hand.

It’s thought that Lymphatic Drainage Massage can reduce edema, swelling, infections and inflammations within the lymphatic system and improve lymph and blood circulation.

Although lymph nodes are present throughout the body, typically the massage will address the areas where one find concentration of lymph nodes. Common areas of attention are the neck, armpits, abdominal region and the groin.
