Lymphatic Drainage: is a gentle massage treatment performed by a specially trained lymphatic massage therapist 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 aid in the prevention of swelling after injury or surgery, as well as help to manage Lymphoedema, a condition which can affect the lymphatic system after post-operative conditions such as post-mastectomy.
