Your lymph system is in effect your body’s waste disposal system. It is a complex system of liquid, tiny vessels and lymph nodes that collects the toxic waste from each cell and delivers it into the blood circulation system. It eventually ends up in the liver to be detoxed mainly via the bowel or the kidneys.

What is Lymph?

Lymph is the fluid that bathes every cell in your body. Approximately half of the lymph formed in the body is formed in the liver. Another reason to keep your liver healthy with liver detox.

It is your lymph system that carries fat, proteins, nutrients and hormones to all the cells in your body. It contains the cells of the immune system. Your tonsils, adenoids, thymus, and spleen are part of your lymphatic system.


Additionally, there is some very important lymph tissue in the gut known as GALT (gut associated lymph tissue). It plays an important part in defending you against bacteria and viruses that enter the digestive system and helps to prevent allergic responses to food.

There is about twice as much lymph fluid in your body as your blood and twice as many vessels. But it does not have its own pump like your heart. The circulation of lymph in your body depends on the movement of your muscles and diaphragm and the pulsing of your arteries.  This is why regular exercise and proper breathing is so important.

If the lymph system is not kept moving it becomes stagnant and toxic waste builds up causing blockages. Likewise if the detox organs are not working well the lymph can get clogged with waste products.This leads to infections, allergies, swellings, skin problems, pain, fatigue, poor general health and even cancer.

A lymphatic massage can help with natural body detox and have a powerful effect on your health.The things it can do for you include:

  • Helps your body fight infection
  • Helps with digestion and bowel problems
  • Reduces swellings and puffiness
  • Improves the appearance and health of the skin
  • Speeds up healing of scars
  • Gives relief from fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, sinus problems
  • General wellbeing

Manual Lymph Drainage

There are a number of different types of lymphatic massage that can help with body detox. One of the most common is manual known as MLD ( Manual Lymph Drainage).

There are a number of different techniques used for this including Vodder, Földi, Leduc or Casley-Smith. A lymph massage is very much lighter than most other types of massage techniques.

Electro Lymphatic Treatment

Although not a true massage Electro Lymphatic Treatment is said to be 12 times more effective than manual lymph massage. It works at a deeper level without applying any pressure to the skin.

The treatment is based on Quantum Physics, using electric energy to stimulate the lymph flow and a negative energy charge to break up protein clusters that can cause blockages and clog up the Lymphatic System.

If you decide to try a lymph massage as part of your detox plan it always helps to be drinking 1 – 2 litres of good quality still water spread throughout the day.

When not to have lymph massage

Do not have a lymph massage if you have an acute infection, thrombosis or serious heat disease.

At one time it was thought that lymph massage should not be done on cancer patients or on people with undiagnosed lumps for fear of spreading it but recent studies have shown that this is not the case. Even so, it is probably best to get the advice of your doctor of you have cancer before having lymph massage.

  1. The lymph system is not something that is talked a lot about by mainstream doctors although manual lymph massage is used a lot for breast cancer patients where lymph glands have been removed and there is swelling of the arm.

  2. Bonnie Reid says:

    I have been a practitioner of ‘electro lymphatic’ work using the Light Beam Generator (LBG) for over 10 years in B.C., Canada and it is so beneficial to our health on all levels. We have 2 to 3 times more lymph than we do blood in our bodies. Even that little extra pouch at the armpit is lymph, not fat. Lymph engorges fat cells!

    Thanks for bringing this to everyones attention.

  3. Where can I go for Lymphatic Massage? I live in California, close to Modesto or Stockton.

    Thank you.

    • Hi Leticia, If you do a search for lymphatic massage ( or lymph massage) therapist Modesto ( or Stockton) you will find some.
      Check out the therapist’s qualifications and make sure she has some experience. Have a good treatment.

    Thank you Sandy

  5. Lymphatic drainage massage is great at flushing out your system especially when combined with aromatherapy oils such as grapefruit. When used alongside reflexology it can not only cleanse your system but it can help rebalance your body and deeply relax.

  6. My wife and I do have something that we have found to be exceptionally helpful for sufferers of Lymphedema. We currently have tested it on one patient who did get approval from her oncologist. His requirements were that it not have any soy or hormones in it which it DOES NOT. She has been so happy with the results that she no longer requires any other treatment for her lymphedema. It is a combination of three herbs which we have also found to be helpful for blood sugar control, high blood pressure, depression, and chronic fatigue as well.

    From the research we have done thus far, we understand why these herbs are helpful in each of these instances based on their composition, and why they work well together. We have filed for a patent to protect this formula so that someone will not take it and increase the price unreasonably for their gain making it unaffordable to those that REALLY need it. We charge $15.00 per monthly supply.

    Personally, we have done research for many years on alternative choices of medicine. My wife has returned to school as well, to further her education and hopes to OFFICIALLY get her credentials as a nutritionist, herbologist, and finally nurse practitioner.

    We would love to provide you with a one month supply and see if it helps your situation. We are also asking those that try it to fill out a short questionnaire in order to track its results. Please feel free to contact my wife at (847) 347-0339 and / or make arrangements to meet and discuss your individual condition.

    One of our friends is a Breast cancer survivor and that is what caused her Lymphedema. She has stated that she MUST have the Tea every day or she has problems with intenstinal issues. She stated that she “Feels like her body is humming” in a good way! Further, she claims that it worked in about one week. In the first week she claimed that she had to pee every 20 minutes, but somehow it felt wonderful!
