Lymphatic Drainage for Inner and Outer Beauty

Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT) is a powerful manual technique which improves the circulation of lymph fluid in the body, assisting with immune function, detoxification, tissue regeneration, and relaxation. LDT uses gentle manual maneuvers to aid in the recirculation of body fluids. The average amount of pressure used is just five grams, the weight of a nickel. Using this technique, trained therapists are able to detect the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of lymph flow anywhere in the body.

LDT works to bring balance both inside and out. When applied on the face, the detoxification and regeneration of tissues creates a visible glow, and overall improvement of the skin. The best part is, the treatment is extremely relaxing and good for our health, from the inside out!

Conditions which may be improved with Lymph Drainage Therapy include:

  • Skin conditions e.g. acne, aging skin, eczema, rosacea
  • Chronic pain e.g. headaches, arthritis, sinus problems, fibromyalgia
  • Digestive problems e.g. constipation, irritable bowel syndrome
  • Edema (swelling) and sports injuries
  • Toxicity: LDT enhances any detoxification program
