Lymphatic Drainage is a detoxifying and slimming treatment as it helps flush out metabolic waste, excess fluids, and toxins from the body. This is a great way to boost the immune system, reduce water retention, and treat Lympodoema. Therapists stimulate the lymph nodes in the body to promote and increase its healthy flow and acts as a vacuum that sucks up toxins and fluids. Excess fluid then goes out to the body as urine. Because of its detoxification, it is best to be avoided when; you are suffering from fever and inflammatory disease, you are on your period or have thrombosis (blood clots), and if you have an undiagnosed lump or active cancer.
