Lymphatic Facial Massage and Why We Love It

If you know santāl skin, you know we are big advocates of skin health and medical grade skincare. Sometimes, maintaining a plump and youthful glow goes beyond all of our favorite skin care products. We’re not talking anything too invasive–in fact, you probably have the right tools with you right now. They are your hands, and you just need to learn how to use them!

What is lymphatic drainage?

Lymphatic drainage is a manual massage technique that works on the lymphatic system, stimulating it to work quickly by moving the lymph to the lymph nodes. Its main function is to accelerate the process of removing the accumulated liquid between the cells directing them to the capillary vessels through specific movements so that they are eliminated.

Lymphatic facial massage is a great way to address everything from fine lines to circulation and even helping to achieve a more sculpted jawline and cheekbones.This is a technique we use during our bespoke signature facial, and the benefits include:

Stimulates blood circulation and tissue regeneration

Directs and increases lymphatic flow, promoting faster removal of excess fluids

Reduces swelling and water retention

Improves the immune system due to the important elimination of toxins

Promotes body and mental relaxation

Provides an overall lightness in the body

Energizes the Body

What to Expect

If someone is giving you a lymphatic drainage massage, prepare to feel them working on you—it’s not a Swedish massage, it’s definitely deeper. But also, expect to feel lighter when it’s over and to look more contoured. You’ll notice a pinkish tint to your skin that’s directly related to increased blood flow. Oh, and don’t be surprised if you’re sore the following two days from the pressure the we will use during the massage. You also might notice more mobility in certain muscles than you didn’t previously have (which, goals). As well as an energized feeling within your body, along with the need to pee more. This happens because your lymph will be moving properly, but also because you’ll need to stay hydrated post-massage (professional or DIY) to maintain the benefits.
