Lymphatic Drainage:

Lymphatic drainage massage is a gentle and non-invasive form of body work that can be especially helpful for those who suffer from common colds, cellulite, autoimmune complications, inflammation in the abdominal and throughout the body, pre/post surgery and much more. It is common for females to receive a series (3 or more) of MLD massage before a vacation to help with inflammation.  Lymphatic drainage Massage stimulates the entire lymphatic system, boosts metabolism, boosts the immune system and “helps” the body to eliminate toxins (Viruses). Use lymphatic drainage massage if you have noticed a slow down in your metabolism, increase in hormonal imbalances, increase in allergies, feeling sluggish or heavier than normal or brain fog. Many times these symptoms can be a sign that there is a blockage in the lymphatic system. A person should schedule a series of sessions (one Lymphatic Detox Treatment per week for three weeks) and continue treatment until they notice a change. Treat yourself to one or two lymphatic drainage sessions every three months if you experience a high frequency of common colds, allergies or headaches. Facial and neck MLD is very beneficial and can be done at home with a lymphatic face roller or a guasha tool.

Pre-Surgical Lymphatic Massage:

Lymphatic Massage is helpful in preparing the body for surgery by clearing any stagnant toxins and waste that may be at or around the surgical sites. Receiving Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) treatments prior to a surgery helps to prepare the area of the body about to undergo an operation. It does this by stimulating the lymph vessels of the lymphatic system to remove cellular waste products, bacteria, viruses, excess proteins, excess fluid and any other unwanted substances from the spaces between your cells; essentially cleaning the tissue and optimizing the cellular environment for surgery.

The Effects of MLD treatment Prior to Surgery May:

  • Reduce the risk of post-surgical infection
  • Decrease excessive swelling
  • Minimize bruising
  • Prevent scar tissue formation
  • Support the immune system so that it can process post-surgical

Post-Surgical Lymphatic Massage:

While some swelling is very normal and a necessary part of the inflammatory healing process, excessive or prolonged swelling can become problematic leading to longer healing times, increased pain, increased risk of infection, persistent swelling, and can adversely affect scar formation causing unwanted adhesions and decreased range of motion. That is why Plastic Surgeons highly recommend receiving Manual Lymphatic Drainage treatments. Your first post-surgery lymphatic massage should take place AFTER your one week follow-up with your surgeon.


  • Healing times are accelerated
  • Scar formation is minimized
  • Risk of infection decreases
  • Bruising and pain reduces

Dry Brushing: 

Dry brushing is a daily body massage with a dry, stiff-bristled brush that helps to get rid of flaky skin, increase circulation, detoxify, help digestion, and even improve the appearance of cellulite. The mechanical action of dry brushing is excellent for exfoliating rough, dry skin. Dry brushing unclogs pores in the exfoliation process. It also helps detoxify your skin by increasing blood circulation and promoting lymph flow/drainage. Additionally, by unclogging pores, it’s easier for the body to sweat and eliminate toxins in your system. Dry Brushing enhancement pairs well with a manual lymphatic massage. It also gives clients something to take home with them to continue MLD at home and in between MLD appointments!


  • Detoxifying the skin
  • Stimulating the nervous system
  • Giving your skin a more radiant glow
  • Gentler on your skin than scrubbing in the shower

CBD binds to receptors throughout the body as part of a system. This system plays a crucial role in regulating important functions in the body. Where there is overactivity, inflammation, or pain, CBD can trigger the body’s ability to regulate and maintain balance.  CBD oil is another GREAT enhancement for MLD massage.

CBD aids:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Chronic pain and soreness
  • Skin irritation
  • Arthritis
  • Anxiety

The cannabinoids in CBD massage oil helps to reduce inflammation and soothes muscles. This makes it very effective at providing relief from painful joints and muscles. People who suffer from chronic pain, arthritis, back pain, and so much more can reap the many benefits of a CBD oil massage.
