Lymphatic drainage has multiple benefits for overall health and wellbeing, as well as improving the functioning and appearance of the skin. Techniques that encourage healthy lymphatic draining enhance skin health by promoting the efficient removal of toxins and excess fluids through the lymphatic system, leading to a reduction in cellulite, improved skin tone, and a revitalised complexion.

At Massage One, our M1 Lymphatic Massage has been crafted with a focus on not only providing relaxation but also delivering skin-centric advantages. Today we will explain how we can help you support skin health in the clinic and at home!

Reducing Cellulite and Enhancing Skin Tone

The manifestation of cellulite is often linked to compromised circulation and fluid retention. The M1 Lymphatic Massage, with its uniquely designed techniques, targets areas susceptible to cellulite formation.

A 2009 study performed various forms of manual lymphatic drainage on patients with cellulite. It found all participants had an improvement in thinning of the subcutaneous fat after the treatment. Thigh circumference decreased by an average of 0.5 cm in all groups as well.

Through gentle, rhythmic strokes, this massage stimulates the lymphatic system, facilitating the elimination of toxins and excess fluids. The consequential reduction in cellulite visibility is a byproduct of improved lymphatic function. Improvements in skin tone may also be noticeable as the massage can address fluid retention and encourage blood flow.

Facial Rejuvenation

While we are best known for our signature body M1 Lymphatic method, we also offer a similar treatment for the face. The M1 Lymphatic Facial Massage is a specialised treatment designed to address facial puffiness, promote an even tone, and increase skin radiance. It can also help with clients who experience tension in the face and jaw. 

The technique involves precise strokes that encourage lymphatic circulation, which can help soften facial muscles, stimulate stagnant lymph nodes and reduce inflammation in the jowl area. The outcomes extend beyond surface-level improvements and can assist with overall skin vitality.

At-Home Complementary Practices: Dry Brushing

A complementary at-home practice to maintain the benefits of professional lymphatic drainage is dry brushing. This ritual involves gently brushing the skin with a natural bristle brush before a shower.

The process exfoliates the skin, eliminates dead cells, and activates the lymphatic system. By enhancing circulation, dry brushing synergises with professional lymphatic drainage, contributing to smoother and brighter skin all over the body.

Facial Sculpting Tools: Jade/Rose Quartz Roller

For those looking to enhance their skincare routine, incorporating a facial roller or gua sha will offer a myriad of benefits. These tools not only provide a refreshing cooling sensation but also bring potential benefits for lymphatic drainage.

By promoting circulation, these facial massage tools can reduce puffiness,  rebuild collagen and improve skin tone. Many users report a lifting effect with regular use. 

Gua sha has also been proven to help relieve tension in the face, reduce inflammation, and it can even help reduce sinus pressure.

A bonus is they can also contribute to improved absorption of skincare products and add a soothing element to your daily skincare ritual. Ask us about purchasing yours at your next appointment!
