Impressive name, right? But, oh, the sensation is amazing!
Manual lymphatic drainage is a very gentle massage technique used to stimulate the flow of lymphatic fluid around the body. It has a calming effect on the nervous system due to its lightness of touch and often produces relaxed and soothing outcomes for patients.
Your lymphatic system is like the rubbish disposal system for your body. It collects bacteria and destroys it via your white blood cells that live in this system. Your lymph nodes swell when you’re fighting off infection.
Using specific slow and light strokes, our staff work skilfully on the connective tissues immediately below the skin. This promotes fluid circulation and decongest of the lymph nodes to help detoxify the body. It’s a peaceful technique commonly used to treat a wide range of health conditions and illnesses and may provide benefits including pain relief, relaxation and a reduction in healing time after surgery or injury.
Better than all that – it’s just soooo relaxing!
