Lymph Drainage Therapy

Advanced lymphatic drainage massage therapy using the Vodder and Chikly techniques is available at Revive Therapy.

Lymph drainage therapy is gentle therapy that improves health by activating the lymphatic system. Moving water within the body reduces swelling, improves immunity, decreases pain and promotes detoxification. It can also reduce congestion, clear sinuses and relieve headaches. This very light rhythmic therapy activates the internal bath of the body for cleansing and better health. Advanced lymphatic work can treat lymphedema and promote healing after surgery.
