Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic drainage massage consists of very gentle massage utilizing light pressure, combined with soft pumping movement designed to stimulate your body to increase lymphatic flow, helping to alleviate swelling and increasing your metabolism and immune system. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate lymph flow.
Lymphatic massage, also called lymphatic drainage or manual lymph drainage, is a technique developed in Germany for treatment of an accumulation of fluid that can occur after lymph nodes are removed during surgery, such as a mastectomy for breast cancer.
Patients whom have recently undergone surgery can also benefit from lymphatic drainage massage.
