What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is designed to improve the functioning of the lymphatic system and this is achieved by gentle, rhythmical movements of the skin to stimulate the contraction of the lymphatic vessels. By doing this more metabolic waste products and excess fluid can be removed from the body’s tissues and enter into the lymphatic system. Once it is in the lymphatic system the fluid, known as lymph, can travel through the system passing through a series of lymph nodes where it will be cleansed of dead cells, bacteria and 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 and is important to encourage healthy body tissue.
