Lymphatic Drainage Massage at our Miami medical center
What Is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
Unlike deep tissue and other forms of massage, lymphatic drainage massage involves light movements and pressure to stimulate the lymphatic system, which is located just beneath your skin. These gentle, circular motions are performed by our Miami practitioners to help move the lymph through your body more efficiently, prodding your immune system into action and speeding up the toxin removal process.Vea nuestro video en Español >>

Lymphatic Drainage Massage after Liposuction
At Icon Medical Centers in Miami, our practitioners are trained in the art of lymphatic drainage massage. Our Miami doctors recommend lymphatic drainage massage for many of our patients, particularly those who have had liposuction or surgery performed recently. Lymphedema is one of the conditions that our practitioners particularly recommend lymphatic drainage massage for, but lymphatic drainage massage is also recommend after plastic surgery such as liposuction by the plastic surgeons in Miami. Patients are recommended to our medical center near Brickell from across South Florida by surgeons in order to help their patients reduce post-procedural swelling and bruising.
Your Lymphatic system
Your lymphatic system is a series of nodes and vessels, similar to your cardiovascular system, that moves a substance known as lymph throughout your body. Lymph not only provides vital nutrients to your organs but is also a crucial part of your immune system, removing wastes, toxins and invaders like bacteria and viruses from your body.
When your lymphatic system isn’t working as effectively as it should be, you may notice puffiness or fatigue, or you may feel run down in general. Lymphatic drainage massage is a treatment performed by a qualified Miami practitioner that stimulates the lymphatic system to work more efficiently and helps it to remove toxins from your body.
