Lymphatic Drainage

$60 usd per session

Document | Procedure Main


Lymphatic Drainage is a type of massage that stimulates the movement of lymph fluid in the body. The lymphatic system is a network of vessels and organs that helps filter and remove waste, toxins, and excess fluid from the tissues. Lymphatic Drainage can help improve the health and function of the lymphatic system, as well as reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain.


Lymphatic Drainage is usually done by a trained therapist who uses gentle, rhythmic, and circular strokes to massage the skin and the underlying tissues. The therapist follows the direction of the lymph flow and applies different levels of pressure depending on the area and the condition being treated. The procedure may take from 30 minutes to two hours, depending on the size and the number of areas treated. The procedure is painless and relaxing, and most people feel a sense of lightness and well-being after the session.


There is no downtime after a Lymphatic Drainage procedure, and you can resume your normal activities right away. However, you should drink plenty of water and avoid alcohol, caffeine, and salt for at least 24 hours after the session, as these may interfere with lymphatic drainage and cause dehydration. You may also experience some mild side effects, such as increased urination, fatigue, or mild flu-like symptoms, but these usually subside within a few days. You should contact your doctor if you have any signs of infection, allergic reaction, or serious complications.


You may be a good candidate for Lymphatic Drainage if you have any conditions or issues that affect the lymphatic system, such as lymphedema, edema, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, arthritis, or cellulite. Lymphatic Drainage can also benefit people who have a weak immune system, poor circulation, stress, or anxiety. You should also be in good health, have realistic expectations, and understand the risks and benefits of the procedure. However, Lymphatic Drainage may not be suitable for everyone. You should not get lymphatic drainage if you have any of the following conditions or situations:

  • An acute infection, inflammation, or fever.
  • A blood clot or a history of blood clots.
  • A heart condition or a pacemaker.
  • A malignant tumor or cancer.
  • A thyroid disorder or a hormonal imbalance.
  • A pregnancy or a breastfeeding.
  • An allergy to any of the products or the device used in the procedure.
  • You should consult with your doctor before getting lymphatic drainage to determine if it is safe and effective for you.


At Ciplastic, the starting cost for a Lymphatic Drainage procedure is $60 usd per session. Your final cost will depend on your specific individual needs.

The effects of Lymphatic Drainage are not permanent and may vary from person to person. Most people notice an immediate improvement in their symptoms and appearance after the session, and the results may last for several days or weeks. However, the results may fade over time, as the lymphatic system is influenced by various factors, such as diet, lifestyle, stress, and illness. To maintain the results, you should follow a healthy lifestyle, drink plenty of water, and get regular lymphatic drainage treatments.

Lymphatic Drainage is generally safe and effective when performed by a qualified and experienced therapist. However, like any medical procedure, it carries some risks and potential complications. These include:

  • Pain, swelling, redness, or irritation at the treatment site.
  • Infection, scarring, or delayed wound healing.
  • Allergic reaction to the products or the device used in the procedure.
  • Rarely, lymphatic overload, which may cause nausea, dizziness, or fainting.
