Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic drainage massage is a specialised therapeutic technique designed to stimulate the body’s lymphatic system, enhancing the flow of lymph fluid and promoting the removal of toxins and waste products from the tissues.

This type of massage employs gentle, rhythmic strokes and precise, light pressure, following the natural pathways of the lymphatic system. It focuses on encouraging the movement of lymph fluid towards lymph nodes, where it can be filtered and processed. The technique is particularly beneficial for reducing swelling, improving circulation, and boosting the immune system, making it a valuable treatment.

During the massage Rayley will perform a series of specific hand movements, including stationary circles, pump techniques, and scooping motions, which are applied in a sequence that corresponds with the direction of lymph flow. Lymphatic drainage massage can be utilised for general wellness, as it can help reduce stress, improve skin health, and enhance overall body detoxification. Despite its gentle nature, this massage technique requires professional qualifications to ensure its effectiveness and safety.
