Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Reduce swelling and maximise healing with a Lymphatic Drainage Massage. It is a specialised form of massage which our therapists in Ashby-de-la-Zouch are experienced and qualified to deliver.


What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

A lymphatic drainage massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage, relieves swelling that can occur when surgery, medical treatment or illness disrupts your lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is the body’s drainage system for swelling so when it is blocked the tissues retain fluid, known as lymph. When something disrupts this drainage process, lymph commonly collects in your arms and legs, making them swell.

Our therapists use lymphatic drainage massage techniques to move lymph from your tissues to your lymph nodes (which are the bodies ‘drains’, assisting in the draining of unwanted fluids). This process helps to ease the swelling in your tissues, which reduces toxins and lowers pressure in the tissues. This often results in pain reduction and improved function.


Lymphatic Massage Reviews

“I have had several sessions at Vitalize with Rosie for lymphatic massage & would highly recommend this service. I have complex vascular issues in the left leg which has brought on lymphedema. The treatment was gentle & relieved the heaviness in the legs , a fantastic way of helping to manage the symptoms.”
