Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
If you are in pain, physical or emotional, we offer a treatment such as Lymphatic drainage massage.
Lymphatic Drainage Benefits
- reduce the chance of you suffering from colds and viruses; it helps your body fight off infection and speeds up healing and recovery from illness
- help reduce water retention; for instance, because the lymph system has no pump, if you sit for a long time without moving, the lymph can’t flow easily — this is why you may experience swollen feet or fingers
- boost weight loss, as improving the lymphatic system will improve your metabolic rate, which helps you burn calories more efficiently
- Manual lymphatic drainage is also used in the treatment of lymphoedema (which may occur after cancer treatment)
Our experienced therapist Louise offers an extremely gentle treatment that involves very light hand movements to encourage your lymph fluid to travel back to your lymph nodes where it will be cleansed of toxins, bacteria and other unwanted substances.
"The lymphatic system consists of your lymphatic vessels - capillaries, lymphatics, nodes and ducts also the spleen, thymus, tonsils, adenoids, appendix and Peyer’s patches (tissue found in the small intestine only).
Think of it as the security line at the airport where potentially dangerous and banned substances are removed from your luggage. Your lymphatic system acts as your immune surveillance via checkpoints while it does a background check removing waste from your blood cells - acting as your first line of defence combating infections."
