Lymphatic drainage is a therapeutic massage treatment. The massage uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body.

The lymph system is part of your body’s immune system and helps fight infection and is used to transfer waste elements around your body. You have around twice as many lymph vessels as blood vessels in your body. Unlike blood which is pumped around by your heart the lymphatic system uses movement from your muscles to push the lymphatic fluid around.
What is lymphatic drainage massage good for?
Lymphatic drainage massage can have a beneficial effect on your general health by improving the flow and drainage of lymph around the body. It is good for you in lots of ways.
Lymphatic drainage massage can:
- reduce the chance of you suffering from minor colds and viruses; it helps your body fight off infection, and speeds up healing and recovery from illness
- help reduce water retention; for instance, because the lymph system has no pump, if you sit for a long time without moving, the lymph can’t flow easily — this is why you may experience swollen feet or fingers
- boost weight loss, as improving the lymphatic system will improve your metabolic rate, which helps you burn calories more efficiently.
