The Treatment

Lymph Drainage therapy is the process of stimulating the Lymphatic system which is responsible for the eliminating the bodies waste. Thus, a healthy and active Lymphatic system is able to stimulate the muscles and conduct this process itself. Consequently, when these fluids build up in the lymph nodes, toxins cannot be filtered and disposed. This condition is known as lymphedema.


Lymphatic massage includes techniques to apply gentle pressure to move the waste fluids from the problem area. There are two steps within lymphatic massage, first is the process of clearing. The first step is known as “Clearing” will attempt to move these fluids by moving the superficial skin structure. The second part is “Reabsorption” that once again uses gentle massage to distribute these fluids.

A detailed list of the benefits include:

  • Detoxification of the body 
  • Deep relaxation to aid insomnia, stress, and memory loss 
  • Regeneration of tissue, including burns, wounds and wrinkles 
  • Anti-aging effects 
  • Relief of chronic inflammations and pain 
  • Reduction in the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome 

Someone that has had surgery to their lymph nodes has most had Lymphatic Massage suggested by their doctor.  Lymph Drainage therapy is intended to be comfortable if it is done by a certified professional. Also, the type of massage that you chose should be dedicated to Lymphatic Drainage since other massage techniques can be too heavy to properly distribute the fluids.
