Lymphatic Drainage Therapy aims to gently and rhythmically balance the lymphatic flow through the body, managing fluid and enhancing the functioning of the immune system.As both a preventative and remedial technique, lymphatic drainage massage can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recovery from injury, reduction of swelling from both edema and lymphedema. I also offer a course in post-mastectomy massage which includes a lymphatic component. I am a certified lymphatic course instructor as part of my training with the Lauren Berry Method and have also done training in Vodder and eastern styles of lymphatic work.
