The lymphatic system is a vital part of the human body, responsible for circulating extracellular fluid. Its primary function is to transport substances such as interstitial fluid, toxins, hormones, proteins, and fatty acids back into the circulatory system. Unlike the circulatory system, which is powered by the heart, the lymphatic system relies on muscle contractions and physical activity to move fluid through the body. When the lymphatic system is impaired, fluid can build up in the tissue causing bloating and sluggishness as the body’s normal functions are delayed. This is why many doctors recommend lymphatic drainage massage, a therapeutic technique that uses gentle, rhythmic strokes to stimulate the movement of lymphatic fluid and unblock congested areas, improving the function of the system. Lymphatic massage is particularly beneficial for those with lymphatic dysfunction or at risk of developing lymphedema, a condition characterized by fluid accumulation and swelling in the tissue. In addition to improving the function of the lymphatic system, it may also reduce stress, improve sleep, and boost the immune system, making it a valuable option for overall health and wellness.

The lymphatic system circulates extracellular fluid and relies on muscle contractions and activity for movement. Impairments can cause fluid buildup and sluggishness, making lymphatic massages a recommended therapy to stimulate fluid movement and improve system function. Lymphatic massage is especially useful for those with lymphatic dysfunction or at risk of lymphedema, and can also reduce stress, improve sleep, and boost the immune system.

General Questions About Lymphatic Drainage Massage


Q: What is the lymphatic system and what is lymphatic massage or Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD)?

A: The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that aid in eliminating waste and toxins from the body. Its function is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body. The lymphatic system comprises vessels similar to those found in the circulatory system, which connects to lymph nodes where the lymph is filtered. Lymphatic drainage massage, also known as Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), relieves swelling caused by an unhealthy lymphatic system. It’s important to note that regular lymphatic massage is different from post-surgery lymphatic massage.

Q: What is an lymphatic massage like?

A: After an initial consultation, you will undress, lie down on a massage table in the face-up position, covered with proper draping. The atmosphere is the same as a massage treatment room with dim lighting and soft music. Although you are in a massage setting, it is important to understand that a lymphatic massage is a specific form of bodywork designed to efficiently move lymph fluid in your body. Manual Lymphatic Massage (MLD) is completely different from deep tissue, Swedish, or relaxation massage that you may be expecting or have had in the past. Stimulation of the Lymphatic System activates the parasympathetic nervous system producing an automatic physiological relaxation response. Many clients fall asleep. Gentle, rotating, pumping motions with the therapist’s hands and fingertips begin at the collarbone area, then focus on areas where there is a concentration of lymph nodes (the underarms, abdomen, groin, and back of the knees). The session always starts face-up position because most of the areas of lymph nodes that need to be decongested are located on the front of the body. It is very important to decongest the areas of drainage in the groin, abdomen, underarms, and collarbone areas before sending extra lymph fluid to them.

Q: Is a lymphatic massage essentially the same as a deep tissue massage?

A: No. A deep tissue massage works on the muscular system, whereas a lymphatic massage targets the lymphatic system.

Q: What health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up?

A: Several situations and health conditions, such as stress, hormone imbalance, fibromyalgia, and lymphadenectomy, can cause lymph fluid buildup. Lymphatic drainage massages reduce swelling, improve circulation, and boost the immune system.

In addition to these specific benefits, lymphatic drainage massages can also provide a number of other benefits for people who receive them. For example, these massages can promote relaxation, as well as improve sleep and reduce fatigue. They can also help to improve flexibility and mobility, and may even help to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Overall, lymphatic drainage massages are a safe and effective way to support the health and well-being of the body and can be beneficial for people with a variety of different health conditions.

Q: Is lymphatic massage painful?

A: A lymphatic drainage massage or Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), is a gentle massage technique that is not painful. The therapist uses light pressure and gentle, rhythmic strokes to stimulate the flow of lymph fluid and improve the functioning of the lymphatic system. 

Q: Will a lymphatic massage really work for me?

A: Yes. Patients typically feel a lot better after having just one lymphatic massage session. A typical sentiment after the lymphatic massage is feeling a reduction in swelling, an improved range of motion, and a general enhanced wellbeing.

Q: Does lymphatic massage help with fibromyalgia?

A: Lymphatic drainage massage is a potential adjunctive therapy for individuals suffering from fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and sleep disturbance. Lymphatic massage may reduce inflammation, improve microcirculation, and enhance the overall function of the immune system, all of which are common symptoms of fibromyalgia. Additionally, Lymphatic massage may have a positive impact on sleep and stress, which are also common issues for individuals with fibromyalgia.

Q: Does lymphatic massage help get rid of bruising?
A: Yes. That is one of the best applications of lymphatic massage. Bruises are an accumulation of cellular debris and old red blood cells in the tissue. Lymph Drainage Therapy greatly reduces the healing time for bruises by cleansing the extracellular spaces where these substances are trapped.
Q: What are the symptoms of poor lymphatic drainage?

A: The following are symptoms of poor lymphatic drainage: Tiredness, insomnia, swelling in the arm or leg (including fingers or toes), a feeling of heaviness or tightness, restricted range of motion, recurring infections, and hardening or thickening of the skin (fibrosis).

Q: How does a lymphatic massage differ from a post-surgery lymphatic massage?

A: Regular lymphatic massage and post-surgery lymphatic massage differ in several ways. Firstly, post-surgery lymphatic massage tends to be more targeted and focused, as it is specifically designed to help with swelling and inflammation that occurs after surgery. The therapist will often focus on areas where lymphatic fluid has accumulated or where lymph nodes have been removed, as these areas are more likely to experience swelling and inflammation.

Secondly, post-surgery lymphatic massage may involve more frequent sessions than regular lymphatic massage. This is because the body’s lymphatic system may be working overtime to clear away the excess fluid and toxins that accumulate after surgery. More frequent massage sessions can help keep the lymphatic system functioning properly and prevent the buildup of fluid in the affected areas.

Finally, post-surgery lymphatic massage may be more gentle and less invasive than regular lymphatic massage. The therapist will often use very light pressure and gentle strokes to encourage lymphatic fluid to move, as the affected areas may be sensitive and tender after surgery. In contrast, regular lymphatic massage may involve more vigorous and deeper pressure to help move lymphatic fluid throughout the body.

In conclusion, while regular lymphatic massage and post-surgery lymphatic massage share some similarities, such as their focus on improving lymphatic function, they differ in their approach, frequency, and intensity. It is important for patients to seek out a therapist who is experienced in post-surgery lymphatic massage and understands the unique needs and challenges of post-operative recovery.

Q: Do I need a prescription for a lymphatic massage treatment?
A: No. Although many doctors recommend lymphatic massage, it is also perfectly fine to self-refer.
