Lymphatic drainage stimulates the lymphatic system to drain and expel toxins, bacteria and waste products from the body and is useful for people who have a sedentary/indulgent lifestyle, those who have had surgery, experienced trauma, or been exposed to chemicals. Lymphatic drainage massage removes cellulite and fluid retention. It is a form of gentle yet affective bodywork.

Patients who suffer with fluid retention (oedema), swollen arms and/or legs, cellulite and insomnia find great relief from their symptoms with lymphatic drainage treatments. It is also effective for insomnia, constipation, polycystic ovarian disease, hormonal imbalances, nervous tension, chronic fatigue syndrome, poor circulation, and sinus congestion plus an effective way to detox quickly.

The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system, made up of nodes and lymphatic fluid and it works most effectively if we are exercising on a regular basis and have chemical free bodies. The massage is light and wave-like, assisting the flow of the lymphatic fluid back into the blood system. This non-invasive technique works well for limb and joint pain such as arthritis.

The upper and lower abdomen is made up of an extensive network of lymphatic vessels and lymph nodes. Hence many hormonal conditions such as polycystic ovarian disease and premenstrual syndrome can be balanced with lymphatic drainage massage.

The inability to fall asleep or to stay asleep can be due to an overactive parasympathetic system, triggered by disturbing thoughts or nutritional imbalance. Either way a lymphatic massage once or twice a week will trigger the body's parasympathetic system back to work. This will automatically calm the body allowing sleep to occur when it is time.
