Fluid retention (oedema)

Fluid regularly leaks into body tissues from the blood. The lymphatic system is a network of tubes throughout the body that drains this fluid (called lymph) from tissues and empties it back into the bloodstream. Fluid retention (oedema) occurs when the fluid isn’t removed from the tissues.

The 2 broad categories of fluid retention include:

  • generalised oedema – when swelling occurs throughout the body

  • localised oedema – when particular parts of the body are affected.

One of many ways to reverse these conditions is Lymphatic drainage massage, which works by stimulating the Lymph system to clear blockages in the body.

By removing the blockages of built up fluid the body can then go into healing itself.

If the Lymphatic system and the Lymphoid tissues & organs failed to do their background work, our cardiovascular system would stop working and our immune system would be hopelessly impaired"
