Benefits of lymphatic drainage
Encourages circulation by boosting flow through the lymph system
Boosts energy levels
Supports recovery after surgery
Why you should try it
Your lymphatic system lies just under your skin. It's a network of tissues that works to protect yu from infection.
This treatment moves waste fluid through your body to help flush out toxins and help your immune system function normally.
What happens in a lymphatic drainage treatment
This type of massage uses slow, light pressure, opening up lymph nodes with soft pushing motions.
This treatment might make you feel slightly sleepy as it flushes waste products out of your system (it might also make you feel like you need to pee!). Make sure to drink lots of water after your treatment.

Lymphatic drainage is a full-body treatment that pushes lymph fluid from all over the body towards lymph nodes. This includes treating the face, legs, arms, hands and feet.
You can stimulate your lymphatic system to help support the drainage process with lots of physical activity before and after your treatment.
Also, hold off on caffeine, alcohol, fizzy drinks and/or eating a big meal before or afterwards.
Lymphatic drainage isn't considered a treatment for weight loss specifically. But by helping you flush out excess fluid, this treatment can help you lose some water weight.
You can lessen the appearance of cellulite a little with a lymphatic drainage treatment, but it’s more of a treatment for detoxing. Try a specialist anti-cellulite massage, like the sculpting massage available on Urban, instead.
No, we don't recommend this treatment if you're pregnant. Try our specialist pregnancy massage instead, suitable from your second trimester.
To keep you and your therapist safe, it’s important to hold off on getting a massage if you’re unwell with a fever or flu-like symptoms, or if you have a contagious skin disease. Therapists have the right to cancel your treatment if they think it will harm you or them in any way.
If you have a health condition and you’re not sure about booking a massage, consult your GP for advice beforehand.
