Our Lymphatic Drainage Treatment: is an extremely gentle style of massage treatment performed to stimulate the circulation of lymph fluid around the body. This helps to rapidly speed up the removal of wastes and toxins from a sluggish lymphatic system. Lymphatic massage can help to improve circulation, increase your metabolic rate and has the potential to improve your immunity. Lymphatic massage can also help reduce swelling in places such as the legs, feet and hands. We have had good results with mild to moderate non-surgical caused Lymphoedema with clients noticing a noticeable reduction in circumference of ankles and puffiness in hands and feet. It is important to understand this result may not last without looking into causative factors. For ongoing non-surgically induced Lymphoedema we recommend having a consult with a Naturopath or Nutritionist to get to the root cause of your condition.
Due to the need to clear the upstream lymphatics spot work treatment is not possible with lymphatic drainage massage. Therefore a minimum of 1 hour is required for either a general Lymphatic drainage for detox or if there is one area of concern. If more than one area of concern (ie. fluid in legs and ankles) please book 1.5 hours.
Please note: For post-operative and severe conditions such as post-mastectomy you may be best to see an advanced lymphatic therapist who is trained to incorporate other modalities into your rehabilitation including compression bandaging, nutrition and exercise.
