Lymphatic Massage

Lymphatic massage is a gentle, non-invasive technique that engages and stimulates the body's lymph system. This modality has been adapted from the non-massage techniques of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD). I have extensive experience (since 2008) performing lymphatic massage on post-surgical clients and I'm very familiar with the recovery process of various procedures.

When to choose Lymphatic Massage:

  • Post surgery - After cosmetic surgery (eg: liposuction, Brazilian butt lift (BBL), breast augmentation, tummy tuck, body sculpting) or other types of surgery (eg: hip replacement, knee replacement) to promote healing, reduce swelling, help the body eliminate residual anesthesia and reduce other post surgical side effects.
  • To enhance a cleanse and for general detoxifying 
  • Fibromyalgia sufferers -to relax the body and manage pain
  • Before cold and flu season

Typical results you can expect from a lymph massage:

  • Increased lymph flow
  • Immune system boost (ward off sickness during cold and flu season)
  • Reduction of swelling and faster recovery from surgeries such as liposuction - a minimum of three sessions recommended for optimal results but your doctor may recommend more. (See below for series prices and discounts.)
  • Deep relaxation
  • Body detoxification (three 60-min sessions recommended during a 21-day Body Cleanse)

55 Min - $85  NOTE: If you're moving especially slow due to discomfort from your surgery, your session may end a few minutes earlier to accommodate the additional time it takes to adhere to Covid-19 room disinfection protocols. Thank you.

For optimal results, a series of three or six lymphatic sessions is recommended. Discounts apply as follows:

  • Series of three lymphatic massages = $242.25 - a 5% savings
  • Series of six lymphatic massages = $459.00 - a 10% savings

*Massage bundles are nonrefundable but never expire. Massage sessions are transferable to family or friends at the client's discretion. IMPORTANT: 24 hour advance notice is required when canceling an appointment. This allows the opportunity for someone else to schedule an appointment. If you are unable to give us 24 hours advance notice or you are a "no-show", you are responsible for the cost of your missed appointment. This amount must be paid prior to your next scheduled appointment.  In the event that you have purchased a series, one appointment will be deducted from your remaining appointments to cover the missed one.

About the Lymphatic System

The lymphatic system is the body’s filtration and transport system and a major part of the immune system. It is a complex network of tissue, capillaries, lymph nodes and lymph vessels that produce and transport lymph fluid. Lymph fluid contains proteins and white blood cells that clean out toxins, pathogens and debris from tissue throughout the body. The lymphatic system closely follows the circulatory system and but unlike the circulatory system, the lymph system is a one-way system that lacks a pump. In order for lymph fluid to circulate in the body, it depends primarily on physical movement and muscle contractions. Slowed or blocked lymph nodes can accumulate toxins in the body which can depress the immune system and the body becomes sluggish and possibly sick.

Even the healthiest and most active people can get partially blocked and sluggish lymphatic systems.

NOTE: In cases of Lymphedema where there is significant swelling, consult your doctor to find out if you need Complete Decongestive Therapy (CDT), or in Long Beach, contact Memorial Hospital Lymphedema Outpatient Program. 562-933-9283 Lymphedema can be a serious medical condition.
