What is Lymphatic Drainage?

Lymphatic drainage massage is a type of light touch massage therapy that helps to relieve the swelling that occurs when medical treatment, poor health or various other conditions cause a backup in the lymphatic system. Unlike the cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system does not have a pump to push lymph fluid around the body, so the lymph relies primarily on your body’s muscle action and movement to maintain its fluid movement. The light touch massage techniques used in lymphatic drainage work to stimulate the lymphatic system and accelerate the process of removing the accumulated liquid in your body by pushing it toward your lymph nodes and flushing it out of your system.

What does the lymphatic system do?

The lymphatic system is of great importance to the overall health of the body. The lymphatic system’s three primary functions are:

  • To support your immune system by removing toxins, dead blood cells, pathogens and other waste
  • To help your body absorb fats and fat-soluble vitamins from your digestive system, delivering these nutrients to cells where they are needed
  • To remove excess fluid known as “lymph” and waste products from the spaces between the cells and organs of the body

How do I know if I need lymphatic drainage?

Almost everyone is a candidate for lymphatic drainage because the lymphatic system can often get blocked or overrun because of things like stress, daily environmental toxins, illness and an unhealthy lifestyle. Some of the symptoms of a blocked or overrun lymphatic system are:

  • Tissue swelling
  • Poor skin tone
  • Excess weight
  • Cellulite
  • Headaches
  • Joint pain
  • Fatigue
  • Greater susceptibility to illness

While a good diet and regular exercise are important, lymphatic drainage massage can accelerate your lymphatic system leading to a wide range of health, aesthetic and fitness benefits.

What can lymphatic drainage do for me?

A healthy lymphatic system is key to good overall health. Some of the benefits you will receive from lymphatic drainage massage are:

  • Reducing swelling caused by water retention
  • Boosting the immune system to help prevent illness and disease
  • Removing pathogens and toxins
  • Improving digestion
  • Helping you feel lighter and less bloated
  • Aiding sleep and relaxation
  • Improving body shape
  • Supporting faster muscle recovery to aid with exercise

Do you offer post-surgical lymphatic drainage?

Yes, we do! Julie Fisher at our Tyvola location offers post-surgical lymphatic drainage.

Is lymphatic drainage beneficial for athletes?

Yes, it is! Lymphatic drainage aids in muscle recovery, joint pain and soreness by removing metabolic waste that clogs up the system. It can reduce pain and increase range of motion by accelerating healing and reducing scar tissue.

Do you offer lymphatic drainage for lymphedema?

No, unfortunately we do not offer lymphatic drainage for lymphedema. Our lymphatic specialists have been trained in lymphatic drainage for edema and/or post-surgical edema but not lymphedema.


Wear comfortable, easy-to-move-in clothing. Close-fitting clothing or sports bras are preferred for structural analysis, and treatments are performed clothed.

We ask for 24 hours' notice to adjust or cancel appointments at no charge.

Cancellations within 24 hours are charged 50% of the session price.

No. We cannot diagnose. Only a doctor can make a diagnosis.

We can and do use orthopedic testing to determine if bodywork is recommended for your issue. If we find that the test we perform is a positive then we may recommend that you go to a medical practitioner for a diagnosis.

Since every one of our therapists is an independent contractor we allow each therapist to decide whether they require credit card information to hold an appointment.

If the therapist does require credit card information to hold the appointment then that therapist will contact you to get that information so that they can put it securely in Square. Your card will not be charged and no amount will be held for the appointment.

If you cancel within 24 hours of the appointment or do not show up for the appointment then half of the price of the session will be charged to the card on file. Thank you for your understanding and please call us with any questions.

Body Heal Therapy is a holistic approach to pain relief. Since the human body moves as a unit, rather than in individual pieces, we often compromise for repetitive patterns and postures with unrelenting tension in other areas that can cause pain. By addressing these patterns, we can go beyond providing temporary help to the area causing discomfort, and instead, treat the root cause with lasting results.
