When it comes to health and wellness, we often focus on the treatment of immediate or physical symptoms; what we can directly see, or feel. How many times have you splashed out on a facial, or a relaxation massage? Hold up, don’t get us wrong - these treatments are totally valid, and offer a myriad of benefits. But sometimes, we’re so busy working on the outside, we forget about the inside.
That’s where lymphatic drainage comes in. A gentle, total body treatment which works to relax the nervous system and boost immunity, lymphatic drainage is a massage technique which uses soft pressure to eliminate excess toxins and waste from the body.

Little lumps called lymph nodes help to filter this fluid, and in turn, get rid of nasty, unwanted by-products. Without a healthy lymphatic system, we’re essentially exposing ourselves to infection, viruses and disease.
So, what kind of person is a suitable candidate for lymphatic drainage therapy? Well, if you’re suffering from any of the symptoms below, consider it your perfect match:
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Lymphatic drainage can provide relief from a number of ailments, so if you haven’t been getting the results you want and deserve from other forms of treatment, lymphatic drainage is a great avenue to explore. What have you got to lose?
