What is Lymphatic drainage massage?


Lymphatic Drainage Massage


💧Lymphatic drainage massage is designed to improve the functioning of the lymphatic system

💧This is achieved by gentle, rhythmical movements of the skin to stimulate the contraction of the lymphatic vessels

💧More metabolic waste products & excess fluid can then be removed from the body's tissues & enter into the lymph system

💧Once in the lymphatic system the lymph fluid, can travel through the system passing through a series of lymph nodes where it will be cleansed of dead cells, bacteria & other waste products

💧The clean lymph is then returned to the blood stream

💧Lymphatic Drainage was cultivated in the 1930's by Dr Emil Vodder, a Danish physician. Research by specialists in the field of lymphology, since his pioneering work, has shown how this method can effectively influence the lymphatic system

💧A well-functioning lymphatic system plays an important part in the body's immune response & is important to encourage healthy body tissue


💧Some factors that can affect the lymphatic system are:

•Exercise/lack of exercise

•Breathing

•Digestion

•Cold/heat

•Tight clothing

•Lymph drainage massage


💧The Correct pressure is light enough so you don’t feel anything beneath the skin. It’s hard to believe that something so light could be so effective

💧A press & release followed by 'zero pressure' action is performed over the lymph to activate the lymph nodes

💧This is then followed by stationery circles & pump action techniques to get the lymph moving

💧If you think of the lymphatic system as a blocked drain, the 'unblocking' process should be done from proximal to distal to get things flowing freely.
