Frequently asked questions about lymphatic drainage Make an appointment

What does the treatment involve?

Lymphatic drainage

With a gentle pumping movement of the hands, the fine network of lymph vessels directly under the skin in the oedema area is stimulated. The skin therapist uses special grips, so-called oedema and fibrosis grips, to treat the skin and the underlying tissue with lymphatic vessels in a very targeted way.

With oedema grips, the skin therapist guides the excess fluid through the tissue to a place where it is more easily absorbed. With fibrosis grips, the skin therapist makes hardened tissue (fibrosis) more supple, so that the fluid flows through it more easily and the painful stiffness is reduced.
