Lymphatic drainage

Lymphatic drainage is a type of massage that helps the lymphatic system.


What is Lymphatic drainage?



The lymphatic system is comprised of a network of vessels that transport the lymph fluid towards the heart. The lymphatic system aids in the removal of waste products such as blood cells, debris, cancer cells. The lymphatic system also absorbs fatty deposits and delivers the nutrients to parts of the body where it is needed.



Lymphatic drainage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the flow of lymph circulation around the body so that a build-up of waste and debris cannot arise. Through the use of light touch and stimulation the specialist can help to ease swollen tissues and increase the body's immune function.

How lymphatic drainage works



The specialists at Liverpool Physio have undergone extensive training and maintain their knowledge on all the bodies systems in order to facilitate their expertise. Their understanding of the lymphatic system is such that they understand how to maximise its performance.

Lymphatic drainage is a very gentle type of massage that uses light strokes on the superficial structures such as the skin in the direction of the lymphatic system in order to drain through its proper channels. Lymphatic drainage is not a painful experience by nature as its aims are to drain and rid the body of its toxins.
