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.
