Improve circulation, increase metabolic rate

This form of massage can aid in the prevention of swelling, assist with bloating, and is believed to provide a boost to your immune system. It can be useful for people who have had cancer treatment, especially breast cancer, and is also a beneficial massage for a range of other people.

At Knots and Niggles, all our treatments are designed to provide real relief and positive body benefit to our clients. We use massage as a form of healing and recovery and have trained to provide effective Lymphatic drainage massage. Cairns clients can book for a treatment which is tailored specifically for their needs. To ensure maximum benefit, we provide a full body assessment prior to performing your Lymphatic drainage massage, delivering treatment where it’s most needed and beneficial.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage Cairns

Manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) is a type of massage based on preliminary evidence which is hypothesised to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. It’s particularly helpful with fluid retention, detoxifying and believed to help boost your immunity and metabolic rate.


This is a gentle massage, performed using slow and rhythmical movements. It focusses specifically on the Lymphatic System, which is a major form of our body’s purification and wellness system.

The major role of the Lymphatic System is to collect excess fluids from our system, purify it and return it to the blood stream. A healthy Lymphatic System helps to defend against bacteria and germs that might cause illness. However, its effectiveness can impaired by certain cancer treatments and other lifestyle factors.

As the majority of lymph fluid sits very close to the skin it can be effectively manipulated by Lymphatic drainage massage. We use light movements to help drain the system, hence the name of this particular type massage.

Lymphatic drainage massage Cairns is suitable for a range of clients. It can assist with the recovery from illness, immune boosting and detoxifying. It’s particularly popular for anyone having a detox, as it supports waste elimination.


Is to deliver professional, therapeutic Lymphatic drainage massage, tailored to your specific needs and circumstances. We begin each session with a full body assessment, which is particularly important if you have had nodes removed. To assist with this, we ask that you please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your booked appointment.

Due to the placement of lymphatic nodes, in the arm pits and around the groin, we’re particularly mindful of your comfort at all times during treatment. The massage is slow, light and rhythmical. Many clients find it quite relaxing.

Lymphatic drainage massage can be very helpful at assisting with a range of conditions, including but not limited to, fluid retention, bloating and swelling, fibromyalgia, lupus and chronic fatigue syndrome. It can also be beneficial for hormonal and emotional imbalances, breast tenderness and anxiety.

WOW what a wonderful remedial massage with Juliana. She is absolutely brilliant. I am now going weekly to release my shoulders, neck and sciatica in the hips. Originally went for my very sore feet but now continuing for other issues I have. Juliana really knows the mechanics of the body.


Lizzie is a super star! Both knowledgeable and intuitive - Lizzie clearly knows her craft but also 'feels' what's needed in terms of problem areas and pressure required with confidence and precision. Get in to see her while she still has room in her Diary. You'll be glad you did!!


Lovely relaxing Lymphatic Drainage Massage from Salena this morning. I felt an improvement with my energy levels with the first hour after my massage. I look forward to benefiting from future massages.


Luke Bulian was absolutely brilliant! I highly recommend and am looking forward to my next massage.


I first saw Lizzie about a year ago now after reading the exceptional reviews and recommendations, and to say I was impressed was an understatement. Lizzie is a massage goddess! She can tell where I’m tight and muscles that need working on just by looking at me, and the difference I feel after massage/dry needling with her is incredible. I see her religiously every week now and there is no one else I trust more with my body, especially given my intense training regime and the importance of me being in top shape. She genuinely cares about her clients and is also one of the most loveliest people you will ever meet. I look forward to our sessions every week and could not recommend her higher. Would give 6 stars if I could!


Very impressed with Luke! He listened to what I felt was wrong and then worked appropriately to loosen up my chest and shoulders. A couple of sessions and I feel great!


I have had a pregnancy massage with Lizzie and Salena, both were amazing. I highly recommend.


After reading her 5 star reviews on Facebook I decided to book in for a remedial massage & glad to say it was the best massage I’ve ever had!!! I went to Lizzie with tight muscles & knots & she worked her magic & soothed my whole body. There were muscles in my body I didn’t even know I was having dramas with until after when I could actually move pain free! She is so down to earth & friendly too - Amazing!


I had a Sports Massage by Luke. I'm a cyclist and have all the tightness and pain that comes with that. He really hits the spots and I feel a lot looser. I will definitely be back.


Wow ... thank you sooo much for the amazing massage today Lizzy. You are one talented lady with special hands. Cannot recommend Lizzy enough. Feeling great and will be even better tomorrow and the next day. So relaxing and very professional. Lovely studio and nice environment.


If you want a massage that fixes up your knots and niggles, you must go to Knots and Niggles! I always have a tight back due to the nature of my work and getting a massage here makes both my back and me feel so good. I can sit straight and get through the work week much easier. Very professional team and they make you feel very comfortable too.


Lizzie has been working on me for a few sessions now. She's amazing! Professional, witty, down to earth. With her additional skills with Dry Needling and Cupping I'm well and truly on the way to feeling like I did 4yrs ago pre injury. Highly recommend for your remedial massage cure.


Excellent therapeutic treatment and a real focus on getting the most out of your session.


Had a great 1 hr massage with Salena! Feel so much better, will be back in future.


Don't let this perfectly accurate review of Lizzie's incredible knowledge and magical skills make your mind up on whether or not you want to book an appointment asap with her - Go and see and feel for yourself! Her skill to pin point where you're feeling pain throughout your body is ridiculously accurate. Stop wasting your money elsewhere and do yourself a tremendous favour and BOOK NOW with Lizzie. Lizzie is phenomenal! 5 Stars from me!!!


I went and saw Lizzie because of scar and adhesion issues. She was very knowledgeable, and I felt at ease straight away. I felt so comfortable and relaxed! Finally, some blood flow and I had this warm belly feeling that was just amazing! Highly recommend seeing Lizzie.


It takes a lot for my fiance Matt to say that he had a really good massage, he's pretty hard to impress...but that's what he came home and said to me after he went to see Lizzie! Highly recommend her, she's a wonderful person inside and out, she loves what she does and it shows. Thankyou! I now have a knot and niggle-free fiancé.


I love Lizzy’s massages. She’s the one person I trust entirely to make me feel better and allow me to continue to massage every week. Thanks Lizzy for making me feel human.
