Manual lymphatic drainage massage is very therapeutic, 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 boost your immune system.
Manual lymphatic drainage massage encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The aim is to encourage the lymph fluid to move away from the swollen area, so it can drain normally. It also helps lymph fluid drain through the healthy lymph vessels, which helps control swelling. 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.
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. This type of massage can also benefit you if you are experiencing Fibromyalgia, Skin disorders, Fatigue, Insomnia, Stress, Digestive Conditions, Arthritis and Migraines.

What my client say
I really enjoyed my Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage with Vicki. It was very light in pressure, totally relaxing and really helped to reduce my swollen ankles. I would definitely recommend this type of massage for anyone that suffers from swollen feet or ankles.
