Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a light, skin-stretching massage that helps promote the movement of lymphatic fluid out of the swollen limb. It should not be confused with a traditional massage. Lymphatic drainage massage is specifically focused on the lymph vessels to help the flow of lymphatic fluid. Therapy is applied to your unaffected areas first, making it possible for the fluid to move out of the affected area, or “decongest” the region. Lymphatic drainage massage helps open the remaining functioning lymph collectors and move protein and fluid into them, as well as to help speed up lymph fluid flow through the lymphatics.
How do you know if lymphatic drainage massage is effective? This is a maintenance technique. Your lymphedema should not get worse if you regularly practice lymphatic massage.
Also, drink water. Well-hydrated tissue helps moves out waste materials.
Managing your lymphedema can also include: Using a compression sleeve to prevent fluid buildup and seeing a qualified therapist for in-office drainage massage

By enhancing the blood circulation and lymph drainage of dissolved lipocytes, the elasticity of the applied area is maintained by using the Vacuum Suction.
The lymphatic system contains vessels and nodes with lymph, a mixture of proteins, water, waste products, and immune system elements. Located throughout the body, lymph nodes filter all this debris.
The largest nodes are in the neck, groin, and armpits. They all work together to make sure “clean” lymph is transported back to the veins that carry blood toward the heart.
Lymphedema can be treated with tight compression bandages or stockings, but a manual lymphatic drainage massage can help enhance the benefits.
If you experience lymphedema after a mastectomy, which involves the removal of breast tissue to treat or prevent breast cancer, lymph drainage massage can help ease mild to moderate symptoms post-surgery.
Aside from lymphedema, lymphatic drainage massage can help treat several health problems. Some conditions can benefit more from the massage than others.
Lymph drainage massage is a useful technique in treating lymphedema and other health conditions. If you have symptoms of trapped lymph fluid in the body, talk to our doctor about the benefits of this type of massage.
