Lymphatic Massage Benefits

Lymphatic Massage Benefits

The International Alliance of Health care Educators explains that lymph drainage massages are done in a specific rhythm and direction to increase the flow of the lymphatic system in the body.  People with medical needs and those that are healthy can both benefit from this type of massage

Healing After Sugery

Lymph drainage massage helps speed the regeneration of tissues and cells to reduce swelling and detoxifies the body.   It is a very gentle and smooth technique used to drain fluid from areas of congestion and swelling.

Better Breastfeeding

Some women experience complications when breast feeding such as plugged ducts, sore nipples and engorgement that can be painful and discouraging.  Even though some complications will be resolved in time, lymph drainage massage can help reduce the swelling of engorgement and improve plugged ducts.  Fixing these problems can reduce soreness and  in the breasts and nipples, leading to better breast feeding.

Improve Immune System

Your immune system is directly tied to the lymphatic system.  If the flow of lymphatic materials slows, the immune system weakens.  Lymph drainage massages can improve the immune system by increase the antibodies that fight off infections and can also reduce inflammation that causes diseases such as arthritis.


The Internal Alliance of Healthcare Educators states that rhythm, pressure and motion of the lymph drainage massages work together to reduce pain, stress and to promote general vitality and well-being
