Manual Lymph Drainage

Manual Lymph Drainage Massage - St.Paul, Burnsville Minnesota
Manual lymph drainage is a form of light massage that encourages lymph flow in the body.

Manual Lymph Drainage uses light, slow, repetitive strokes specifically designed to boost the circulation of the lymphatic system, which facilitates the removal of excess water, waste, toxins, and foreign substances from the body tissues.

Lymphatic massages is a technique commonly used for treatment of lymphedema, an accumulation of fluid that can occur after lymph nodes are removed during surgery.

The first session of a lymphatic drainage massage will involve a consultation so your needs can be determined.  During treatment, the therapist gently rubs, strokes, taps or pushes the skin in directions that follow the structure of the lymphatic system so that accumulated lymph fluid can drain through proper channels. Lymph Drainage is not painful and does not have a stimulating effect. A typical session lasts half an hour to 1 hour.
