Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Our highly trained staff of Licensed Massage Therapists are skilled in Manual Lymphatic Drainage.
A massage therapist with specialized training in Lymphatic Drainage can perform this painless, relaxing, and effective manual therapy. Performing an effective lymphatic drainage massage requires special knowledge, training, and experience. The therapist must understand how the lymphatic system works, both anatomically and physiologically, to move the fluid effectively. Certified therapists are often referred to patients by medical doctors to treat several acute and chronic conditions.
Our Manual Lymphatic Drainage sessions are normally 60 or 90 minutes. We also offer 30 minute sessions if needed.
What is Manual Lymphatic Drainage?
Lymphatic Drainage is a massage technique that is designed to stimulate the circulation of lymph to speed up waste removal in the body. It aids the nervous system by reducing sympathetic nervous activity, allowing parasympathetic activity, and stimulating the defenses of the immune system by increasing the flow and volume of the lymph fluid.
The technique involves using gentle rhythmic strokes and pumping movements toward the direction of the lymph nodes on the body. Lymphatic drainage massage is helpful for cellulite, scars, stretch marks, detoxification, weight problems, chronic fatigue, arthritis, neurological disorders, pain, pregnancy, and overall well-being.
