Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic drainage is a gentle full body massage treatment which helps to detoxify the body.

What is Lymphatic Drainage?

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy involves physical hand movements on the skin which is a therapeutic or aromatherapy massage and causes friction to the skin which encourages the blood supply and lymph production. The massage uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body. The lymph system is part of your body's immune system and helps fight infection.

How is it used to treat?

The lymph transports nutrients and oxygen to cells along with collecting tox-ins and flushing them out of your body. It is crucial to keep the immune sys-tem working smoothly to help fight infection and have a good health. This treatment improves the flow and drainage of lymph around the body, reduc-ing the chance of minor colds and viruses, water retention and boosts weight loss.

Daily drainage is important to relieve pain and drain excess of fluid and speed up recovery. Nine Elms Clinic is designed to help you recover fast and help reduce scar tissue. This treatment is tailored based on your needs.

Side effects

Feeling fatigue after the treatment is normal as the massage relaxes the lymphatic vessels and nodes make the body feel tired. Aching muscles are also considered a natural result after treatment due to the release of toxins and tension in the muscles.
