Lymph drainage massage has become a popular form of massage due to its potential health benefits. This specialized approach focuses on the lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system. This type of massage aims to help the body maintain proper blood circulation, body fluid balance, and immune functions.
This is great massage to get post surgery to help combat edema (swelling) during recovery. This technique is performed with very light gentle massage strokes directed towards the lymph beds to promote drainage of stagnant fluid.
