Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM)
Who needs LDM?
A LDM is commonly used for its ability to:
Fight off infection.
Speed up healing and recovery from the cold and flu.
Reduce water retention.
Boost weight loss.
Improve cellulite, skin swelling, scar tissue, acne, and stretch marks.
Reduce stress and fatigue.
Help with post exercise recovery.


What is LDM used for?
LDM is a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the bodily tissues.
What can I expect from LDM?
Your massage therapist will use a variety of massage techniques, probably working her way up from your feet. LDM uses very light pressure, as well as long, gentle, rhythmic strokes and soft pumping movements in the direction of the lymph nodes.
How often should you get a LDM?
How often manual lymphatic drainage is required depends on the severity, location of swelling, and how much movement of the area is tolerated. It often starts out five days a week for three to eight weeks, then is performed as frequently as necessary to maintain improvement.
Does LDM reduce weight?
A LDM can help you expedite your body's natural way of getting rid of toxins by pushing fluid to the lymph channels through a gentle and targeted technique. Getting yourself a Lymphatic Massage now can lead not only to lose weight but to good overall health.
How long does lymphatic drainage take to work?
Unlike the cardiac system, the lymphatic system does not have a pump, it relies on muscle movement, manual lymph drainage, or hydrostatic pressure. Following an hour long lymphatic massage, the flow rate will be approximately 100 to 120 bpm, and will gradually slow over the proceeding 48 hours.
Is LDM safe?
For the most part LDM is safe. With such a light touch, the danger of causing damage to the tissue is slim. However, there are a few conditions that are contraindicated, and these happen when an increase of lymph flow would be detrimental.
Can you feel sick after lymphatic drainage?
You may experience a feeling of nausea, headache or flu-like symptoms as your body struggles to process the increased amount of metabolic waste.
What are the side effects of lymphatic drainage?
Side Effects and Precautions
Lymphatic drainage is non-invasive and generally considered safe. Because it is focused on soft to moderate stretching of the skin, it doesn't cause the discomfort associated with deep tissue massage or sports massage.
