What happens during a Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
This is a gentle rhythmic massage using a special oil that helps stimulate the circulation of lymph fluids in the body. Trained Lymphatic Massage therapists perform it. Lymphoedema is a condition caused by certain kinds of surgery involving lymph nodes. This results in a build-up of toxic substances in the form of fluids. Increase in the toxin levels makes us feel of low energy and continued fatigue. Lymphatic Drainage Massage uses gentle pressure to move waste fluids from the damaged area.

Best use of Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is indicated if you have swollen arms or legs due to fluid retention if you have a post-surgery condition that results in the same. It is also indicated post-mastectomy, and when a person feels permanent fatigue or is feeling depressed. It is also advised when people have cellulite fat accumulation or have frequent infections such as cold, flu, tonsillitis, sinus or yeast infections. The massage is also ideally indicated after travel or after a night of drinking and partying.
Before/After Massage Tip
As with every massage, you can expect to feel stiff and even tender, though this will subside after a couple of days leaving you more relaxed than ever.
If you desire to reduce the tenderness, warm-up your muscles with a bath, a heat pack or steam. Once your muscles are warm, we also recommend dynamic stretching to release some of the tenderness and to further lengthen your muscles.
It is also essential to stay hydrated before and after the treatment to ensure that you get the best results.
Avoid eating right before a massage.
