This massage focuses on improving the movement of the lymphatic system. When the lymphatic system becomes stagnant, our cells do not receive adequate levels of oxygen and fluids. Lymphatic massages are unusual as they do not focus on the muscles, but involve firm upward movements along the lymph nodes and ducts, to stimulate the lymphatic system’s movement. Many individuals with oedema, post-surgery water retention, sport or work injuries, or people who have lymphoma benefit from this type of massage. If you are undergoing a detox you may find a lymphatic drainage massage can help clear toxin build up in your lymphatic system.
