What is Lymphatic Drainage?
Lymphatic Drainage is a light pressure massage that enhances the natural flow of your lymphatic system, unclogging any trapped proteins or toxins. Our lymph system is a communication network between our organs, enabling essential nutrients to travel across our body and toxins to be flushed out to the lymph glands. The lymphatic system is also the first line of defence of our immune system, and gives the signal to all the infection-fighting cells when a harmful microorganism infects the body.
What type of concerns can Lymphatic Drainage help to address?
Lymph congestion most commonly occurs when trapped toxins clog the lymphatic system reducing its normal flow. As toxins accumulate, blocking the proper communication between the vessels, many valuable nutrients or signals might fail to reach their destination in time. As a results, our blood flow could be affected as well as the proper function of our immune system.
Lymphatic Drainage performed at our specialist clinics can help to improve microcirculation and has therefore been used to speed up the healing of scars post-surgery. By enhancing the elimination of toxins, Lymphatic Drainage can help to diminish the appearance of cellulite and enhance the elimination of fat from our body. As a result, it can be a great add-on treatment to all cellulite and fat reduction treatments.
