Manual Lymphatic drainage is a very therapeutic massage. Using very light pressure with long gentle rhythmic and repetitive strokes to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body. Sometimes referred to as a ‘Detox massage’, this type of massage will support your body’s internal filtration mechanisms and help keep your immune system in check.
The lymph system is part of your body’s immune system and helps fight infection. Lymph itself is a clear, slightly yellow fluid. It transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, collecting toxins on the way and flushing them out through the lymph nodes. You have around twice as many lymph vessels as blood vessels in your body. However, unlike blood which is pumped around by your heart, the lymph system has no pump. The pressure from your blood vessels and movement from your muscles push the lymphatic fluid around. A healthy, active lymphatic system uses the natural movements of smooth muscle tissue to do this. The main lymph nodes are in the neck, armpits, and groin.
Surgery and medical conditions can cause fluids to build up in your lymph system and your lymph nodes. Procedures that affect or remove your lymph nodes can cause lymphedema as a side effect.
Swelling, also known as edema, can happen anywhere in the body. It’s commonly seen in the hands, arms, feet, ankles, and legs. Swelling occurs when extra fluid gets trapped in your body’s tissues. Several things can cause this, including heat, exercise, or medical conditions.

What my client say
I really enjoyed my Lymphatic Drainage Massage with Vicki. It was very light in pressure, totally relaxing and really helped to reduce my swollen ankles.
