The normal heavy -handed manual drainage techniques were introduced in hospitals in the 17th century and later developed in the 1930s with precise manual lymphatic drainage techniques which have now been taught throughout the world.
Described as “One of the best kept secrets on the health and beauty scene” (Jane Alexander, Daily Mail), the light rhythmical massage encourages the lymphatic system to eliminate waste products, excess fluid and bacteria. This helps detoxification and can have a positive effect on body weight and energy levels and clear areas of congestion such as swollen ankles, puffy eyes and swollen legs.
It is a whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids the body’s immune system. The aim is to move excess fluid away from congested areas so it can continue to drain away normally. It is highly recommended for those prone to and recovering from sore throats, colds, infections, on-going tiredness, excess fluids, low immunity, swollen nodes and also for the physically inactive.
The Lymphatic Drainage Massage will include pumping movements in the main lymph nodes and gentle long massaging strokes resulting in an extremely relaxing treatment.
