What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

A lymphatic drainage massage uses light, rhythmic strokes that guides lymphatic fluid towards the lymph nodes so waste products toxins and infections can be more effectively removed from the body. The lymphatic system is a vascular network that doesn't have it's own pump so it relies on breathing and muscle contractions to move fluid along its vessels.

 

A trained practitioner’s hands can simply apply pressure to re-stimulate the natural contractions of the lymphatic system. This will move the stagnant fluid back into the natural lymph flow of the body.
