If the system is not functioning properly a build-up of fluids (oedema) may appear within the tissues and cause a very unpleasant sensation of heaviness and fatigue – mostly in your legs.  This oedema often leads to the compression of blood and lymphatic vessels which can be painful, even at night. Unlike your blood circulation which has a pump (the heart), your lymphatic system cannot move fluids on its own; it relies on the movements of the muscles.

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT) consists in powerful massages that improve the efficiency of the system, boosting the natural drainage of the lymph. It is often classified as a slimming therapy as it reduces water retention, swollen legs and cellulite.

How does it work ?

LDT is a controlled compression system.  It uses inflatable boots that fill up with air one from your ankles moving up to your upper thighs. They then deflate every 20 seconds for for half an hour. The treatment is completely painless. It often causes light sweating due to toxin elimination through the skin. A session lasts 30 minutes.
