Lymphatic Massage

What is lymphatic massage

Lymphatic massage ( LM) is a gentle technique to help increase lymph flow. 
Immune function is increased, harmful substances are removed from the tissues and neutralised in the lymph nodes. 
Lymph nodes are stimulated by a gentle wave like motion with the hand, which can activate the fluid flow, that encourages the natural drainage of the lymph fluid. The fluid carries waste products away from the tissues and back towards the heart. 
The process is non-invasive and has a powerful effect on the body.
