The lymphatic system is part of our body immune system and helps fight infections.

– lymphatic drainage is a therapeutic massage treatment which uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes and passive movements to increase the lymph flow and reduce toxins in our bodies, by encouraging lymph to drain out of the affected area into the area that drains normally.

– lymphatic drainage massages can improve the function of the immune system and increase the production of antibodies that fight off infections.

– lymphatic drainage massages can also reduce inflammation in the body that causes diseases such as arthritis

– lymphatic drainage massage can have a beneficial effect on your general health. Because lymph is key to keeping your immune system working properly, improving the flow and drainage of lymph around the body are good for you in lots of ways.

Lymphatic drainage can:

– reduce the chance of you suffering from minor colds and viruses; it helps your body fight off infection and speeds up healing and recovery from illness

– help reduce water retention; for instance, because the lymph system has no pump, if you sit for a long time without moving, the lymph can’t flow easily — this is why you may experience swollen feet or fingers

– boost weight loss, as improving the lymphatic system will improve your metabolic rate, which helps you burn calories more efficiently.
