The Latest Weapon Against Puffy, Dull Skin: Lymphatic Drainage Massage

What Is Lymphatic Drainage?
Unlike the heart, the lymphatic system does not have a pump to push it around the body, so the lymph, a clear fluid that moves through your body's arteries and tissues to clean them, before draining them through the lymphatic system, relies primarily on our body's muscle action and movement to maintain its fluid movement. Lymphatic drainage is a manual massage technique that works on the lymphatic system, stimulating it to work quickly by moving the lymph to the lymph nodes, throughout your body, but largely located in your neck, armpits, and groin. Its main function is to accelerate the process of removing the accumulated liquid between the cells and their catabolic residues, directing them to the capillary vessels and, through specific movements, so that they are eliminated.

Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage
  • Stimulates blood circulation and tissue regeneration
  • Directs and increases lymphatic flow, promoting faster removal of excess interstitial fluid
  • Reduces swelling and water retention
  • Improves the immune system due to the important elimination of toxins
  • Minimizes the appearance of cellulite by reducing the amount of fluid that presses up against the cross-hatched fibers beneath your skin
  • Promotes body and mental relaxation
  • Provides an overall lightness in the body
  • Energizes the body
