Your lymphatic system is your body’s drainage system, it takes all the used up hormones and waste products away from your cells and helps them leave the body (mostly via your kidneys).
If these waste products build up they can cause all kinds of issues; pain and swelling as well as systems not working effectively. By reducing the inflammation and swelling and helping the waste to leave your body, you feel more comfortable and have less symptoms.
This means lymphatic drainage can help with a wide range of conditions including:
- Allergies and sinus congestion
- Post-operative recovery (particularly cosmetic surgery)
- Nerve pain / injury
- Digestive issues
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and ME
- Breast pain and period pain
- Back / neck / muscle pain
- Joint pain / injury
Reduces scarring after injury or operations
At SlimmingLab we use “Electro” Lymphatic Drainage in preference to more traditional, manual techniques
This allows us to work much more deeply than traditional, manual practitioners, into places behind bones, like the chest, and also deeper into the digestive system and internal organs.
The treatment is painless (you might feel a gentle warmth) and is non-invasive, we make gentle skin contact and that’s it!
The waste is carried through to the kidneys where you simply pee it out. So you will need to drink lots of water to keep the kidneys flushed.
