Everyone needs a healthy lymphatic system to help eliminate waste and prevent illness.
In our daily lives we are constantly bombarded with pollution, toxins and stress, and these inevitably take their toll. Manual Lymphatic Drainage is gentle but the overall effect is cleansing and surprisingly relaxing. Regular treatment combined with a sensible diet and exercise programme would make a considerable difference to health, fitness and general well-being.
Lymphatic Drainage is an extremely gentle form of massage which helps to boost the immune system to help fight infections, recurring colds, flu and bronchitis as well as more serious conditions such as glandular fever, Hodgkin's disease and lymphoedema. This treatment can
help with constipation, inflammation, lethargy, bloating, cellulite, allergies, s
kin conditions, water retention, muscular aches and depression. It is often used in the first few days after a sports injury or operation to reduce any inflammation and swelling. It is often recommended when clients have had fat reducing surgery.
Treatments are usually administered over dry skin and no oil is used. However, if the skin is too dry it may be better to use some cream to prevent drag. This is one of the few treatments that can be administered daily. Treatments can be administered at our clinic in Twickenham, West London and may last 60 to 120 minutes. Clients that want a full body treatment should allow for a minimum of 90 minutes as the techniques need to be performed very slowly.

This is a great treatment to use on cancer patients as it can help to boost white blood cell
count before the next chemotherapy or radiotherapy session as well as reduce swelling of limbs when lymph nodes have been removed. By boosting the immune system, lymphatic drainage can help clients to recover more quickly, enabling the body to fight cancer cells and other pathogens. Clients often report renewed energy after having weekly 60 minute sessions for a few months.
