Lymphatic drainage is an important part of lymphoedema treatment. Our Lymphatic Vacuum Massage helps to stimulate the lymphatic system and encourage the flow of lymph fluid (see research).
Our lymph nodes are soft, small internal structures located in the armpits, groin, and neck, as well as in the centre of the chest and abdomen. The lymph nodes produce immune cells that fight infection while filtering lymph fluid to remove foreign material. When bacteria or other threats are present in lymph, lymph nodes increase production of infection-fighting white blood cells, which can cause the nodes to swell.
The circulatory system has the heart. However, the lymphatic system has no “pump” of its own to move lymph through the system. Rather, bodily movement and breathing function to move liquid lymph through the vessels and filters of the lymph nodes. For people who get little exercise, and eat too much processed food, the lymphatic system can easily be overtaxed, resulting in a body that is susceptible to infection and disease. The Lymphatic Vacuum Massage is an hour-long treatment which can combat this issue*.
Using traditional methods of lymphatic massage and modern technology, your practitioner will use an HD Vacuum Roller to massage the whole body, flushing toxins towards the lymph nodes. Our cutting-edge, bespoke technology is highly refined and unique to the VIVO Clinic group. When paired with our unrivaled clinical expertise, this allows us to offer an effective and affordable, clinically sound, Lymphatic Vacuum Massage, with potentially great results.
