Do you have limb swelling? Lymphatic massage can help!

What is lymphatic massage?

Lymphatic drainage massage is a gentle form of massage used to relieve painful swelling in your arms and legs. Normally, your lymphatic system collects fluid (lymph) and returns it to your heart. When something disrupts this process, swelling can build in your limbs. This can cause pain, tightness and discomfort.

What are the symptoms of lymphatic dysfunction?

  • Excess swelling
  • Limited movement in arms and legs
  • Skin changes
  • Skin colour changes
  • Blisters
  • Leaking of fluid from the skin
  • Infection
