Also known as Lymphatic Drainage or Manual Lymph Drainage. This massage uses very light pressure and gentle rhythmic strokes, to increase the flow of lymph, aiding relaxation offering a sense of well-being. We use coconut oil as a carrier and introduce oils to support circulation and lymph movement. This will be discussed at the time of treatment and can be modified where appropriate. Being an important part of our immune system, helping to fight infection, lymph is a clear liquid, collecting bacteria and other waste products, which are transported to lymph nodes, to be purified before joining the circulatory system and flushed away naturally. The lymphatic system does not have its own pump, unlike the heart for circulation and relies on movement and muscle contraction to make it flow.
Although it supports the immune system, this treatment may not be suitable for everyone and therefore it is important to seek medical advice if you have any health concerns. Some common signs showing a sluggish lymphatic system are, bad circulation, swollen legs and ankles and lack of energy. Hot stones are an optional extra, warming the body, inducing deeper relaxation. If you prefer, lymphatic massage can be done through the feet. Please ask.
