    Do you have any other self massage videos? I am unable to find a lymphatic massage therapist in my area and benefited so much from this massage I want to be able to do more on myself.

      Hi Stephanie, Thank you for your comment. At this time, I do not have more self lymphatic massage videos posted. Heather in Louisville, Kentucky has several videos on YouTube. I highly recommend checking them out. MassagebyHeather.com Wishing you all the best!

    I do this each morning after a shower. You explained it very well. Simple and easy to understand. I have a lymph massage oil and use your technique. Many thanks. It’s helping to ease my lipedema symptoms. Who knew such a gentle touch could do so much?

      Linda, thank you for sharing your experience. I love your comment about gentle touch. It is so true. The effects are profound.

    Hi Rochelle, will this work for cystic hygroma? I have a pretty huge one on my left neck above shoulder and had 2 surgery to remove it but still recur. My last surgery was in 2004 and it has gradually grown so much since then i wish i had learnee about lymphatic drainage massage earlier but im still hoping that it could help me to at least reduce the size of the cyst as i can feel the discomfort of it already. Appreciate your advice

      Hi Afzan,

      I’m sorry you are experiencing this challenge. I highly recommend trying lymphatic drainage massage from a certified therapist. Since a cystic hygroma is due to blockage in the lymphatic system, it may help to resolve the issue and also avoid another surgery. Surgery will create more scar tissue, which can also be a problem. Your therapist will be able to give you tips on things you can do at home to support your lymphatic system.

    I have been diagnosed by a MD that i have sluggish colon and i am having for many years bloating , nausea & lymph nodes do flare up in groin and neck area for no apparent reason and then it will bet better. I been told that i have to undergo lymphatic drainage message in doctors office. My insurance is not covering this procedure even though doctor wrote explanation as why its important to have it done. I have been diagnosed with MS 5 years ago and i do gain weight super easy and not able to loose any unless i go on starvation diet for 3-5 days. What can you recommend? Thank you

      Hi Galina,

      It sounds like you would greatly benefit from lymphatic drainage. It is unfortunate that many insurance companies do not cover lymphatic drainage massage. Lymphatic massage is helpful for sluggish digestion, MS, and it is also helpful for weight loss. Sometimes extra weight is attributed to toxins being stored in fatty tissue. In the body’s infinite wisdom to protect us, it stores toxins in fatty tissues. Lymphatic drainage can help to release the toxins, which is not always pleasant, but beneficial in restoring balance. I highly recommend finding a way to receive these sessions. Sometimes therapists will offer package rates to reduce the hourly fee.
