Lymphatic Drainage Massage (also referred to as manual lymphatic drainage) is a gentle but very specific type of massage that improves the transport of fluid and waste in the body through the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system drains excess fluid and waste products from the tissues, deals with inflammation and infection, and transports fats and proteins around the body. A lymphatic drainage therapist uses light and rhythmic hand movements on the skin, stimulating lymph nodes and the numerous lymphatic channels.
Lymphatic drainage is often recommended by doctors for pre and post-surgery to help alleviate swelling, pain, scar treatment, and overall to enhance surgical recovery.
Our therapists are specifically trained in lymphatic drainage treatment, as it is a specialised treatment requiring a thorough understanding of the lymphatic system and presenting health conditions.
We have many clients who report noticeable benefits from regularly having lymphatic drainage treatment who do not present with any major conditions and simply want to try it out.
We are particularly experienced in post-liposuction oedema treatment. Lymphatic drainage is also a primary treatment used by people with lymphedema and lipedema.
Suffer from IBS-type symptoms? We are currently offering specialised lymphatic drainage treatment plans to our clients. If you have a health problem you want to resolve or you suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) or IBS-like symptoms, this program is for you. Contact us today and we will develop a personalised treatment plan. Our program is based on positive findings from a clinical study demonstrating improved IBS symptoms. 5-20% of individuals suffer from IBS but 70% of those are unaware or undiagnosed. Symptoms can be subtle but debilitating and reduce your quality of life. IBS is very difficult to diagnose effectively and medical prescriptions offer only 7-15% better results than a placebo.
Lymphatic drainage can help to treat symptoms of IBS, which may include: abdominal pain, lethargy, reflux, stomach bloating, diarrhea, constipation, fever, rectal bleeding, night sweats, decreased appetite, nausea, unexplained weight loss, and more. If you have any severe cases of these mentioned symptoms, we recommend you see a doctor first before visiting, especially unexplained weight loss. There is currently no cure for IBS, but our lymphatic drainage massage program can help to considerably alleviate symptoms.
