What is the difference between a Lymphatic Drainage and a Swedish massage?
A Lymphatic Drainage massage uses extremely light pressure, even in comparison with a gentle Swedish massage. Though this type of massage may have relaxing effects, it's main purpose is to drain the lymph nodes. If you're looking for a more traditional massage experience, you could try an Urban Classic.
Does a Lymphatic Drainage massage hurt?
This type of treatment uses very light pressure, so you shouldn't experience any pain. If you are post-surgery you will want to discuss any areas of particular concern before your massage begins. If it ever becomes too much, talk to your therapist. They'll do whatever they can to make sure you're feeling comfortable.
What type of therapists specialise in Lymphatic Drainage massage?
This is a specialist type of massage which is typically performed by physiotherapists and medical professionals. Any mistakes in the technique will reduce the effectiveness of the treatment, so it's important that only reputable therapists perform Lymphatic Drainage.
