Lymphatic Drainage Sculpting: Why You Should Be Doing This Regularly

Can lymphatic drainage help with body sculpting? Here’s everything you need to know!

What is lymphatic drainage?

Lymphatic drainage massage, sometimes referred to as manual lymphatic drainage, is a gentle massage used to alleviate painful lymphedema swelling in your arms and legs. This massage works by moving the accumulated fluid from swollen places to lymph nodes, where it can be re-circulated. But did you know that lymphatic drainage massage can also help with body sculpting? Whether you are looking for a pre-party fix or you want to tackle post-travel puffiness, this gentle massage can help. Lymphatic drainage is also ideal for pre and post-partum and for those recovering from surgery. There are two steps to a lymphatic drainage massage:

  • Clearing: In this step, the lymphatic fluid in your tissues is released.
  • Reabsorption: This step transfers lymphatic fluid to your lymph nodes.

How is lymphatic drainage performed?

This personalized 60-minute treatment includes a complete body massage with lengthy, rhythmic strokes that encourage fluid movement through the lymph nodes in the body. 70% lymphatic system is present in the stomach. Therefore, the massage begins there and moves down the body, working its way from the belly to the thighs, calves and ankles. It helps to drain excess fluid, reduce under-the-skin puffiness and remove waste and toxins. Clients report feeling lighter and less sluggish after this calming and rejuvenating treatment. Lymphatic drainage massage also helps you achieve a tighter and more sculpted silhouette. Are you wondering how often you should be doing this? For best results, we recommend lymphatic drainage from once per month to once per week.

What are the benefits of lymphatic drainage?

This body sculpting procedure has a plethora of benefits, including:

Reduced bloating

Trapped fluid in your body is a major cause of bloating. Lymphatic drainage accelerates the movement of stagnant fluid and helps reduce bloating.

Reduced swelling

Do you wake up with a puffy or swollen face? Lymphatic drainage can decongest your tissues and reduce swelling and puffiness.

Sculpted body

Do you want to get a toned body without going under the knife? Lymphatic drainage is the best non-invasive solution for body sculpting.

Radiant complexion

Are you struggling with dull skin? Lymphatic drainage can help. It helps to clear away toxins below the skin's surface. If practiced regularly, it can transform your skin. Lymphatic drainage promotes blood circulation, smoothes the features, and gives you a youthful and radiant complexion.

Accelerated lymphatic flow

A lymphatic drainage massage speeds up the absorption and transportation of lymphatic fluids in the body.


The massage stimulates the lymph vessels of your lymphatic system to remove waste products, bacteria, viruses, excess proteins, excess fluid and any other unwanted substances from your body.

Firm skin

Reduced functioning of dermal lymphatic vessels is associated with sagging of skin. You can combat this issue with the help of a lymphatic drainage massage, as it makes your skin firm.

Minimized appearance of cellulite

Lymphatic drainage treatments can help minimize the appearance of cellulite as they reduce the amount of fluid that presses up against the cross-hatched fibers beneath your skin.
