Manual Lymphatic Drainage in Suffolk
Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a specialised, gentle massage technique that stimulates the body’s lymphatic system, improving the metabolism, helping the body to eliminate waste and toxins and providing a boost to the immune system. It is a rhythmical and deeply relaxing massage, whereby specific and gentle movements of the skin stimulate and increase the removal of waste products, toxins and excess fluid from the body’s tissues resulting in clearer and cleaner skin, reduced puffiness around the eyes, reduced cellulite, reduced fluid retention and improved skin tone. Lymphatic Drainage also has a tonic effect on intestinal peristalsis, which in turn can aid digestion.
Your Lymphatic System
Your Lymphatic System is part of your immune system, which protects the body against infection. It transports nutrients to cells and eliminates metabolic wastes, toxins and excess fluid from the body. When the Lymphatic system becomes blocked, fluid builds up and stagnates, causing the entire system to become toxic. This makes us feel sluggish and more susceptible to viral or contagious diseases.
By stimulating this system through massage, it works more efficiently, which in turn boosts the immune system, clears blockages, eliminates toxins, transports nutrients to cells and increases the metabolism.
