The lymphatic system is a complex network of tissues and organs that helps to rid the body of waste. It also transports white blood cells around the body to effectively fight infections. Lymphatic drainage is a medical therapy that can be used to improve the function of the lymphatic system with a quick and easy appointment.
Mechanical lymphatic drainage therapy is intended to improve blood and lymph circulation, reduce swelling and tissue fibrosis (scar tissue), soften localized fatty deposits, increase skin sensation, and aid in the removal of fatty cells. It also effectively breaks down subcutaneous fat and reduces cellular tissue accumulation of fat through rhythmic massage. For certain conditions like fibromyalgia and lymphedema, lymphatic drainage can be a huge benefit.
Anyone can benefit from lymphatic drainage and massage to help move important fluids around the body. It’s important to discuss any health conditions with Dr. DiFrancesco during your consultation so that we can optimize your treatment plan accordingly.

Vacuum suction is the best mechanical method of lymphatic drainage, removing waste products and toxins from the skin and achieving deep cleansing. The tissue is compressed into the cup using a gliding or pulsating method of application, which aids the body in moving lymph nodes, improving the skin’s condition. Additionally, each session can include a gentle massage to ensure that the lymphatic system effectively moves important fluids where it’s needed most. In general, each treatment session can take around one hour to ensure that you receive the full benefits of this therapy.
