What is a lymphatic drainage massage and how does it work?

Lymphatic drainage massage is a type of massage therapy that may help to relieve swelling that occurs when medical treatment or poor health causes blockages to the lymphatic system. This is the part of the body that protects us from infection and disease.

Certain health conditions – including obesity, inflammation, infection and cancer – can cause lymph fluids to build up, a condition known as lymphedema. Lymphatic drainage massage can help to reduce this by using gentle pressure to move lymph (excess fluid) from your tissues to your lymph nodes.
