The History of Lymphatic Drainage


What is Lymphatic Drainage?

This therapy has its own, independent role in situations where major soft tissue traumas have occurred and any strongly applied pressure could potentially cause more damage to the lymphatic system.

The gentleness of touch specific to the manoeuvres used in lymphatic drainage therapy can produce excellent results in the management of conditions requiring specialised care:
post surgery where major lymph nodes have been removed,
post-mastectomy, post-hysterectomy or tumour removal.

When should I have Lymphatic Drainage?

Both chronic and acute conditions benefit from this technique especially where there is serious pain, oedema and inflammation. These can occur with after
dentistry, cosmetics, gynaecology, gastroenterology, opthalmology, sport related traumas and general surgical applications.

How is Lymphatic Drainage Performed?

Does it hurt?

There may be a small amount of pain when tissues are inflamed, but Lymphatic Drauinage is designed to be gentle and subtle.

Can I get rebates from my health insurance?

If your level of cover is adequate then you will most likely be covered. Please check with your Health Insurance Provider directly.
