Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic drainage stimulates the lymphatic system to improve metabolism, promote the removal of bodily toxins and waste, and encourage a healthy immune system.


How Does It Work?


The therapy works with the body’s lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is responsible for immune system regulation and fluid and waste removal. It is what helps rid the body of any toxins that may cause illness. When the lymphatic system becomes blocked, fluids begin to build up, causing the whole body to feel tired and heavy, making us susceptible to disease and infections.

Stimulating the lymph nodes through therapy helps clear any blockages and gives the lymphatic system a boost, keeping it running healthy and strong. This keeps your body free of toxins and illness, while also creating a stronger immune system.


Lymphatic Drainage consists of gentle pressure and pumping movements towards the direction of the lymph nodes throughout the body. Therapy increases the rate at which the body removes waste, dead cell particles, and inflammatory agents from our tissue. Accelerating the lymphatic flow has been demonstrated to reduce swelling and bruising in injured regions. Studies indicate that, when the volume of fluid at the injury site is reduced, rehabilitation time may be shortened.


I use Lymphatic Drainage as an adjunct to P-DTR, especially for post-surgical clients.


Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage


This therapy is good for individuals who frequently suffer from a compromised immune system, depression or emotional problems, stress, and low energy. It has been shown to have positive effects on the skin, to produce energy, and to help with respiratory problems. Lymphatic Drainage boosts the immune system, making it easier to fight off disease, and it creates general feelings of vitality. It can also assist in the treatment of pain, because it stimulates the body’s innate healing mechanisms. 


Lymphatic Drainage can:

  • Alleviate post-surgical edema.

  • Reduce pain and inflammation.

  • Detoxify the body.

  • Stimulate the immune system.

  • Improve skin regeneration and wound healing.

  • Reduce the formation and severity of scars.
