Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Lymphatic drainage massage is possibly the most gentle and relaxing form of massage as it concentrates on the lymphatic system and is part of the immune system.
The lymphatic system includes the organs of the body, blood vessels and tissues, that combine to help remove toxins from the body via lymph nodes. Lymphatic drainage massage is also a way to reduce swelling that has built up in areas of the body, leaving an individual feeling more relaxed. However, it is unlikely to make a massive difference to your health.

Lymphatic drainage uses various techniques including gliding, compressing and cupping motions to encourage fluid to the main lymph nodes found in the neck, armpits and groin.
