Guide to lymphatic drainage treatments: London
Looking for a rejuvenating treatment in London? Lymphatic drainage lifts lazy muscles, de-puffs face and body while speeding up the detoxifying process
What is a Lymphatic Drainage massage?The lymphatic system is recognised by doctors in Europe and the Far East for its importance to preventive health care. They understand that a compromised lymphatic system can lead to a range of health issues including tissue swelling, poor skin tone, excess weight, cellulite, headaches, fatigue and susceptibility to illness.
Jules Willcocks, Director at Body Ballancer, says, 'The lymphatic system sits alongside the body’s cardio-vascular system quietly helping to maintain our health and well-being by performing three critical functions: Aiding the immune system in removing and destroying waste, debris, dead blood cells, pathogens, and other toxins; absorbing fats and fat-soluble vitamins from the digestive system; and delivering these nutrients to the cells of the body where they are used as fuel and to remove excess fluid – ‘lymph’ – and waste products from the spaces between the cells and organs of the body.' Plus the visual effects are quite exciting with benefits including improved skin texture and tone, and reducing the appearance of cellulite.

This new treatment to the UK is the equivalent to a six-person massage. Based on the Vodder method of MLD, the Body Ballancer® enhances lymphatic flow, stimulating the whole of the lymphatic system. It delivers constant and equal pressure around the limb as the fluid is moved through the body promoting optimum health by boosting the immune function and improving removal of waste and toxins. Wearing what looks like high-tech salopettes, you’re strapped up to the machine. It gets to work on toning legs, slimming the abdomen and diminishing the appearance of cellulite all the while you lay there relaxing. We can’t think of an easier way to detox and trim post-festive season.
FOR THE FACE
Vaishaly Clinic Bespoke Facial from £65
51 Paddington Street, London W1U 4HR
The Vaishaly Signature Facial not only promotes relaxation and wellbeing (expect to drift off) – but also is particularly beneficial for individuals who have slightly inflamed skin. The gentle movements used throughout the massage help to prevent blockages and bring oxygen and nutrients to the cells. This will reduce puffiness due to its ability to disperse congestion, which may have been caused by irritants in cosmetics, illness, allergies or overindulgence in inflammatory foods. Under Vaishaly’s magic hands, (or one of her expertly trained therapists) expect facial features to be more defined producing sharper jaw line and cheekbones, reduced puffiness in the whole face and under eyes.
