Lymph drainage massages can help with healing after surgery. This type of massage regenerates tissues to reduce scarring at surgical incision sites. Lymph drainage massages also reduce swelling in the body, according to the International Alliance of Healthcare Educators. The alliance’s website states that lymph drainage massages help speed regeneration of tissues and cells.

The massages shouldn’t be done until a doctor clears the patient for/recommends manual lymphatic drainage.

Improved Immune System

The immune system is tied to the lymphatic system. In fact, if flow of lymphatic materials slows, the immune system weakens. MassageTherapy.com states that lymph drainage massages can improve the function of the immune system and increase the production of antibodies that fight off infections. Lymph drainage massages can also reduce inflammation in the body that causes diseases such as arthritis.
