Lymphatic Drainage massage is when a trained massage therapist manually pushes lymph through the body, breaking up areas of swelling and reducing excess fluid in the body. After a procedure such as a tummy tuck or liposuction, swelling in the body will happen. It is a normal bodily function from the inflammatory response as fluid rushes to those areas with white blood cells.
Lymphatic massage helps move fluid build up and allows it to move through the lymphatic passages to be flushed from the body. It also helps prevent scar tissue from swelling and bruising. Lymphatic massage after a procedure helps reduce healing time and the pain that goes along with it as well as ensures you’ll achieve the best results possible from your procedure.
