Lymphatic Drainage Massage

60 minutes .......... $102 

90 minutes .......... $140

Lymphatic Drainage Massage originated in the 1930s to reduce the effects of lymphedema. It is a specialized type of gentle massage that assists the lymphatic system in maintaining the body’s fluid balance, blood circulation, and immunity.

During a lymphatic drainage massage session, a specially trained massage therapist uses a series of gliding, compressing, stretching, and cupping motions over the client’s body. The light rhythmic movements, applied without massage oil, stimulate the lymphatic system without compressing the vessels – allowing lymph to move easily through the tissues and lymph nodes.

Suffering from congestion from a cold or seasonal allergies?  Add on a 15-minute or 30-minute lymphatic drainage massage specifically focused on your face and scalp to any other service! 
 
As with a full lymphatic drainage massage, a specially-trained massage therapist will use light, rhythmic movements, without massage oil, over the face and scalp to allow movement of fluid build-up in the head.

Similar to Physical Therapy, benefits may be realized over several sessions over multiple weeks.
