During this course you will learn professional techniques to carry out a full body lymphatic drainage massage to improve the functioning of the lymphatic system enabling the body to remove toxins and excess fluid from the body’s tissue.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is designed to improve the functioning of the lymphatic system and this is achieved by gentle, rhythmical movements of the skin to stimulate the contraction of the lymphatic vessels. By doing this more metabolic waste products and excess fluid can be removed from the body’s tissues and enter into the lymphatic system. Once it is in the lymphatic system the fluid, known as lymph, can travel through the system passing through a series of lymph nodes where it will be cleansed of dead cells, bacteria and other waste products. The clean lymph is then returned to the blood stream.
