Lymphatic drainage is a light massage therapy treatment that helps increase the function of the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is made up of lymphatic vessels and lymph nodes that carry lymph fluid across the body, which aids in the removal of metabolic waste and toxins.

In this blog, we will provide a basic definition, as well as listing the benefits, common body parts treated, and techniques of lymphatic drainage massage.

What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

Lymphatic drainage massage is a method that encourages the natural removal of waste products from out of the body. It is performed as a light massage type stimulating the lymphatic system that is beneficial for detoxification, edema, and pre/post-surgery, and medical conditions, such as the following:

The Basic Lymphatic Drainage Technique

Lymphatic drainage massage can be used to treat and handle a wide range of common body parts, such as the following:

  • Arms
  • Upper Back
  • Thighs
  • Calfs

The first key factor in lymphatic drainage massage is a gentle, light touch. May not apply enough pressure to feel the muscles. Keep your hand relaxed when administering this method. The goal is to encourage the movement of lymph by following the lymphatic system’s pathways. Concentrate on areas with a high density of lymph nodes, such as behind the leg, under the armpits, and the neck.
