If you love hav­ing a mas­sage, book your­self in for a lym­phatic drainage treat­ment. It helps to re­duce wa­ter re­ten­tion and the ef­fects can keep work­ing for 24 to 48 hours af­ter­wards.

“Man­ual lym­phatic drainage is ex­cel­lent for eas­ing chronic in­flam­ma­tory con­di­tions as it re­moves ex­cess fluid and tox­ins from the tis­sues,” ex­plains mas­sage ther­a­pist Gwen Davies.

The treat­ment in­volves be­ing gen­tly mas­saged for up to 75 min­utes, while ly­ing down. You may need to re­move your clothes down to your un­der­wear, as the lym­phatic ves­sels are su­per­fi­cial and any com­pres­sion can hin­der the move­ment of the fluid.
