Lymphatic drainage massage stimulates and improves the condition of the body by using a combination of pressure points, techniques, and hand movements to drain toxins and fluids.
The purpose of a lymphatic drainage massage is to move fluid from a swollen area into an area where the lymphatic system is working properly. A trained clinician will use specialized skin movements, alternating between Vodder, Foldi, and Leduc techniques, focusing on pressure points and weight to move the fluid into an area for drainage.
Each session on the body lasts 60 minutes. If you are doing both face and body, the session will last 90 minutes.
Drink plenty of water, 1.5 to 2 gallons per day, to flush all of the toxins out. Wear slimming vests or waist trainer belts to maximize results around the torso area.
You will see noticeable results after one session, however for detoxing we recommend at least once a month. For pregnancy or post partum, we recommend once a week or every other week. For water retention, weight loss and cellulite, metabolism, circulation and digestion issues, it is recommended every week.
Sessions should be daily for a course of 12 days if you are post-surgery in order to heal properly and get the most out of your surgery.
Avoid heavy meals or a full stomach prior to your visit. Drink plenty of water, wear comfortable clothes but not too tight.
You should start your lymphatic drainage massage 48 hours after your surgery for a period of 12 days.
Lymphatic drainage is highly recommended after surgeries because it improves circulation, draining away toxins and dead cells, maximizing nutrition for faster and improved recovery. It is effective in preventing fibrosis and eliminates bruises and swelling quicker.
