What Is Lymphatic Drainage?

Lymphatic drainage is a very light and gentle form of massage, the objective is to enhance the flow of the body’s lymphatic fluid through to an area where it can be cleansed, returned to the heart and removed from the body. We offer lymphatic drainage massage in both our Melbourne clinics

It is beneficial for conditions such as : post traumatic conditions (sports injuries), post event (delayed muscle soreness), tendonitis, arthritis and degenerative joint diseases, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome, oedema, pregnancy, acne,  pre/post- surgical conditions, weight loss, general fatigue and lethargy, diabetes, high blood pressure, insomnia.

It can also increase the body’s protection from infection and resistance to disease by relieving stress and boost the various functions of immune system.

How It’s Done

When you arrive our therapist takes a thorough history to understand your issue to decide the most effectively way to treat. Lymphatic drainage massage is done on a standard massage table. The massage strokes that are used by our therapists are fairly light and rhythmic.

At the end of your session, our therapist sometimes recommends using compression stockings. Our therapist will also recommend specific self-treatment and exercise/stretches that will add to the benefits from the session. Feel free to ask any questions you have also.
