The job of the lymphatic system is to help rid the body of toxins, waste and unwanted materials by transporting lymph, a fluid that carries infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout your body. Lymphatic massage is a light and rhythmic style of massage that supports your lymphatic system in moving lymph more effectively, and can alleviate swelling and encourage a healthy immune response. Receiving lymphatic massage pre and post surgery, and after an injury, helps to reduce swelling, support your immune system, and promote healing. Lymphatic massage can also support general health and well being, and promote a sense of deep relaxation.
