Lymph Drainage Torquay
Schedule an appointment with Lisa from Surfcoast Massage for lymph drainage Torquay. The lymphatic system is a complex network of vessels and ducts that runs alongside the circulatory system designed to move toxins from the body to support the immune system.
When our lymph glands become blocked toxins can’t be released from the body. If left untreated over a long period of time, this condition can become chronic placing pressure on the heart and kidneys. Lymph drainage can reduce blockages creating a healthier lymphatic system promoting health in the circulatory, respiratory, muscular and endocrine systems.
Benefits of Lymph Drainage

A lymphatic drainage massage is also an extremely gentle but highly effective therapy for general swelling, puffy ankles, fluid retention and can help decrease swelling and bruising following cosmetic surgery, liposuction, breast reduction, breast implants or laser surgery.
