Why you need a Lymphatic Drainage Massage in Perth

We live in a toxic world where we cannot control everything our body comes into contact with. From what we consume to products we use on our skin, to the air we breathe, there is an onslaught of chemicals not intended for the human body. This alone can put a lot of pressure on the body.


The body needs help detoxifying. Add Covid to the picture, and our immune system is overworked. We need to help our body fight, so we can get back to living joyfully and with vitality. This is where lymphatic drainage massage will benefit you greatly.

A quick summary of the lymphatic system and what it does:

The lymphatic system is our body’s waste management system. It helps us eliminate all the toxins collected within the body before creating inflammatory conditions and disease. Unfortunately, the chemical onslaught that we are often exposed to today means that the natural process taken by the lymphatic system is in overdrive. It needs us to support the work it does for us internally.


As powerful as it is innately, the lymphatic system does not have a pumping system as our heart does. It relies on our muscles and movement to move lymph through the body.


What happens if waste gets stuck in our bodies?

Often waste gets stuck in between cells in our body. In stubborn areas, this can appear as a dimpling of the skin, as in the case of cellulite. This is why after having a lymphatic drainage massage, you may start to see a reduction in the appearance of cellulite. Helping the lymphatic system remove stagnant fluids eliminates toxic build-up and also that which appears as cellulite.

Functions of the Lymphatic System

Comprised of tissues, organs and vessels, the lymphatic system is a part of the immune system. With 600 lymph nodes in the body, it has the following functions:

  • The lymphatic system maintains the fluid balance in the body
  • It absorbs fats and fat-soluble nutrients
  • Works to defend the body against intruders
  • Moves lymph into the bloodstream throughout the body

Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage in Perth

  • Stimulate an increase in blood circulation
  • An increase in lymphatic flow, in turn, promotes a hastened removal of excess lymph fluid and toxic build-up.
  • Reduces water retention and swelling
  • Reduces the appearance of cellulite by releasing fluid trapped beneath the skin
  • Fights disease and bacteria
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Reduces pressure on cells and helps them recover quicker
  • It helps restore immune function
  • Improves metabolism
  • Speeds healing of scar tissue
  • Breaks down the toxins that cause skin dimpling (cellulite)
  • Increasing circulation in the face helps to reduce puffiness and prevent the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Restores vitality

Can anyone benefit from having a lymphatic drainage massage?

We believe anyone can benefit from a lymphatic drainage massage outside those at high risk. Those with a heart condition, blood clots, or kidney failure should not undergo lymphatic drainage. Please consult a medical professional if you are unsure about your condition or are concerned about experiencing adverse effects from lymphatic drainage. As with all therapies, it is advisable to see your doctor to discuss the health benefits before trying something new.

Who would benefit from having a lymphatic massage?

The following outlines several circumstances where there would be a great benefit to the individual getting a lymphatic drainage massage.

Again, please seek advice from your medical practitioner if you are unsure about the benefits of lymphatic drainage concerning your specific health condition.

  • Increased exposure to toxins, pesticides, heavy metals
  • Recent illness, radiation therapy (with Dr approval)
  • Recent injury (with Dr approval)
  • Recovery from addiction
  • You take a lot of medication
  • Conditions associated with allergies
  • Infections with parasites
  • You are consistently feeling sluggish with fatigue
  • Itchy skin
  • Swelling within the lymph nodes
  • Dehydration
  • Lymphedema (swelling)
  • Sufferers of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue

Lymphatic Drainage Massage Optimises the Efficiency of the Circulatory System.

A lymphatic drainage massage has been shown to optimise the efficiency of your circulatory system. Every other system of the body relies on it functioning optimally. As an example:

  • Our digestive system picks up nutrients in the body to nourish the body, including the muscular system and the skeletal system
  • Blood carries oxygen inhaled by the lungs supporting our respiratory system
  • Waste products found within the cells are picked up by the lymphatic system and shuttled to the kidneys and lungs for disposal.
  • The circulatory system carries hormones from the endocrine system
  • Our brain is supported by oxygen-rich blood that, in turn, is used to regulate your heart rate and blood pressure.
  • The urinary system removes waste that the lymphatic system has delivered.

Lymphatic Drainage and Cellulite Treatment Perth

We have a couple of treatment options for you if you are looking for a lymphatic drainage massage.

NormaTec Boots Compression Technology:

Ready for a high-tech air compression massage? NormaTec leads the industry in recovery systems, providing a patented technology that enhances blood flow through the body. It also effectively mobilises trapped fluid and removes waste from the body.

How do the NormaTec Recovery Boots work to provide lymphatic drainage?

NormaTec recovery is an innovative technology that provides users with unique and sophisticated compression therapy.

  1. Pulsing. Mimicking the natural muscle pump of the arms and legs, NormaTec Pulse Technology pulses to transport fluid out of the portions instead of static compression, which uses a squeezing action.
  2. Gradients. Using hold pressures in timed stages, NormaTec pulse technology prevents fluids from being forced back in the wrong direction by tapering the stress of such optimal pressure received in every zone.
  3. Distal release. Extended static pressure may harm circulatory flow; thus, NormaTec pulse technology releases the hold in each zone when unnecessary. This ensures that the limbs have maximum rest without significant pauses between compression cycles.

BodyRoll Rolling Massage Machine

The BodyRoll massage machine has become one of our most popular wellness technologies. Particularly as we approach the summer seasons, guests are booking in for a BodyRoll to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Getting bikini ready is easy when you have access to the Body Roller.

How does the Body Rolling Massager work to provide lymphatic drainage?

The Body Roller Massage Machine is a customisable massager that features a large-scale wood roller. Guided by a touchscreen display with clearly defined instructions, therapy begins as the guest places specific body parts over the rollers. Coupling infrared heat and colour therapy into the massage session, the body roll massager applies mechanical pressure that tones and sculpts the body with each turn.

If you are looking for the ultimate in detoxification and bolstering your immune system – book a NormaTec Session at our Perth Wellness Centre. Our other wellness therapies at BodySpace Perth also provide lymphatic drainage massage benefits.
