The fluid in the lymphatic system helps in removing byproduct waste and toxins from the body’s tissues. Some health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up, such as lymphedema, fibromyalgia, and other illnesses. Lymphatic drainage massage can benefit people suffering from the said medical conditions.

This blog will discuss what lymphatic drainage massage is, what it can do for you, who can benefit from it, and how to improve the lymphatic system to remove more waste from the body.

What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage & How It is Done?

Manual lymphatic drainage is a type of massage therapy that gently aids the lymphatic system in maintaining fluid balance, blood circulation, and immune functions in the body. 

A lymphatic drainage massage is done by a professionally skilled massage therapist who uses gliding, compressing, stretching, and cupping movements over the client’s body. The gentle rhythmic motions activate the lymphatic system without compressing the vessels, allowing lymph to flow freely through the tissues and lymph nodes.  

Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Health conditions can disrupt the regular movement of lymph, allowing lymph fluid to collect in a certain region of the body, most often the arms or legs, causing pain and swelling. Lymphedema is the medical term for this condition.

Surgery procedures, radiation treatment for cancer or the removal of lymph nodes, and any disease that affects the lymphatic system will cause lymphedema.

Lymphatic drainage massage can relieve swelling and increase lymphatic drainage in the body. Lymphatic massage is typically used as part of a medical treatment known as decongestive lymphatic therapy (DLT), which includes:

  • Lymphatic drainage massage
  • compression garments
  • exercise
  • skincare
