Lymphatic drainage is a manual form of light massage that uses pumping motions. This action helps your body to rid itself of excess water (swelling) and toxins following over indulgence e..g. Christmas or hen weekends.
Essential Feeling are one of the few places that do this massage. They’re based in Romford, in Essex and are experienced in working with consultants to ensure that their advice is followed and you heal well. MLD is often recommended following surgery, including liposuction.
You need lymphatic drainage because your system doesn’t work so well on its own. Particularly when we’re not moving around a lot – which is exactly what happens when we’re post surgery. So, not only does the surgery induce swelling, but we’re not moving enough for our body to deal with efficiently itself.
