The lymphatic system is an essential component of your immune system. It drains lymph fluid, which is then transferred back into the bloodstream through a network of hundreds of lymph nodes. It also reduces body waste and transports white blood cells, which aid in infection prevention.

Fluid can accumulate where there is an obstruction in your lymphatic system. And this is where lymphatic drainage massage, a form of massage therapy, comes into action! 

Traditionally, lymphatic drainage massage utilizes to treat lymphedema, a disease characterized by chronic swelling that can arise after lymph node removal. Other common medical problems that can benefit from this specific massage treatment are the following:

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Chronic Venous Insufficiency
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Stress & Fatigue
  • Depression & Anxiety
  • Hormonal & Emotional Imbalance
  • Swollen Lymph Nodes (Lymphadenopathy)
  • Lymphatic System Cancer

But in recent years, some people, including influential personalities like celebrities, have begun to incorporate lymphatic drainage massage face into their skincare routine as a tool against puffy, dull skin and skin irritation. Some have also referred to it as a non-invasive facelift.

“Theoretically, because it clears excess fluid and toxins, that might be a good thing for your face, too,” Dermatologist Adrian Lim says. While Professor Neil Piller from Flinders University’s Lymphoedema Clinical Research Unit also adds that they found lymphatic drainage facial massage has some positive results, published in their 2013 research.
