Lymphatic drainage massage stimulates the body’s natural detoxification process, allowing the body to dispose of waste proteins, bacteria and viruses naturally. As a result, our clients achieve better health, heal faster, and restore their energy.
Lymph Life practices lymphatic enhancement therapy (or LET). It’s a more effective version of lymphatic drainage massage.
The Lymphatic System (and what it does)
The lymphatic system is how your body detoxifies. It carries cellular waste, viruses, and bacteria to organs that flush it from your system.
Unlike your cardiovascular system, there is no pump that circulates lymph fluid. In fact, the lymphatic system relies on muscle movement to work effectively. So you can see how the lymphatic system can get sluggish. Especially if you haven’t been exercising or have a job where you’re seated all day!
Lymphatic Drainage Massage – or Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy – Helps the Body Eliminate Toxins Naturally
When lymph fluid isn’t moving properly, it can cause swelling, inflammation, bloating, joint pain. You may also experience less energy as waste and toxins build up in your system. To address this, our practitioners apply gentle pressure to target areas. This encourages stagnant lymph fluid toward organs that sift out toxins and flush them from your system. This natural detoxification, using your body’s own tools, leads to better health and more energy. The process is painless and relaxing, usually taking 90 minutes to two hours.
How to Prepare for Your Lymphatic Drainage Massage (or Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy)
You can take a few easy steps to improve the effects of your treatment. Drink plenty of water and eat a light meal before arriving for your treatment. You’ll want to wear loose, comfortable clothing that is easily removed, as we’ll ask you to disrobe for the treatment. Ladies, no underwire bras! Make sure you don’t have any oils or lotions on your skin.
What to Expect After Your Lymphatic Drainage Massage (or Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy)
Many clients experience immediate results. Yours will be specific to you. Our patients experience a variety of changes after a treatment. This might include more energy and a deeper, more restful sleep. Those who seek treatment for certain conditions, such as chronic pain, may experience spontaneous joint adjustment (due to fluid movement from the joint), reduction in swelling, fewer headaches, and less chronic pain.
You could experience temporary muscle aches and pains while your body detoxifies. You may experience an increase in urination and bowel movements, too. That’s one of the ways your body eliminates toxins.
Please do not ignore pain – if severe, please seek immediate medical attention.
Drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol for 24 hours. Get plenty of rest. An anti-inflammatory diet, regular exercise and healthy stress management techniques are all critical to keeping your lymphatic system functioning at its best. Consider dry brushing your body daily to assist the efficacy of treatments. Sweating in an infrared sauna can also aid in maintaining treatments.
The Frequency of Your Lymphatic Drainage Massages (or Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy)
Do you want to experience optimal results? If so, you should aim to have a lymphatic drainage massage twice a week for four weeks, twice a year. But if that’s not possible, please know that even one treatment will be a benefit to your health and wellbeing.

- Post-op Breast Cancer patients looking to reduce lymphedema and swelling;

Lymphatic drainage massage can make diet plans more effective and reduce puffiness around the eyes and face. It can reduce the appearance of cellulite as it reduces fluids in the skin. And, of course, reducing toxins promotes cell and tissue regeneration.
