Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Nobody likes to feel weighted down. Life is difficult enough not to hit the snooze button or respond to a text message or e-mail, so why add to that struggle when it comes to your body?

At Pure by Alpha Dermatology, we strive to give our New Hope and Sellersville patients the best Lymphatic Drainage Massage in the Bucks County area. If you are tired of everyday discomfort or pain in your arms and legs, this could be a life-changing experience. To learn more about this treatment, we encourage you to keep reading below.
What Is Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a specialized approach to massages that focuses on the lymphatic system. This system is a part of the immune system that contains vessels and nodes with lymph (a mixture of proteins, water, waste products, and immune system elements). The lymph nodes help filter all the debris, but can sometimes get clogged which creates lymphedema (swelling in the arms and legs). Certain symptoms include:
- Hardening or thickening of the skin
- Heaviness in the limbs
- Recurring infections
- Skin discoloration
- Tissue swelling
What are the Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
Some of the benefits that our team has seen from Lymphatic Drainage Massage are:
- Creates an overall lightness in your body
- Directs and increases lymphatic flow, which in turn prompts the removal of interstitial fluid quicker
- Eliminates toxins to help improve your immune system
- Gives you more energy and promotes mental and physical relaxation
- Minimizes cellulite appearance by reducing excess fluid from pressing up against the fibers underneath your skin
- Reduces water retention and swelling
- Removes and transports any stagnant fluid
Lymphatic Drainage Massage can not only treat your body but can help your mind as well. It is also great in protecting you from seasonal viruses to give you a more relaxed, lighter feeling and provide you with more energy.

What to Expect on the Day of Lymphatic Drainage Massage
There are four most commonly used types of lymphatic drainage massages, which include:
- Vodder: A foundational technique that uses various sweeping motions around the treated area
- Foldi: An extension of the Vodder technique, but requires alternating between circular hand motions and moments of relaxation
- Casley-Smith: Involves circular hand motions using the sides and palms of the hands.
- Leduc: Relies on hand motions to collect lymph fluid and then redirect it to be reabsorbed into the larger lymphatic system
Lymphatic Drainage Massage Recovery
Once you are finished with your Lymphatic Drainage Massage, you can return to your daily routine. You should make sure over the next few days that you get plenty of rest, gently stretch your muscles, and get your muscles moving. You don’t need to do anything too strenuous, just enough to break a sweat. You should also drink lots of water and eat healthily as there will be some frequent urination and bowel movements as your body expels the toxins.

Awesome office staff and Carly, Drew and Dr Shrager are phenomenal! Highly recommend. My appointment this time was with Carly and I couldn’t be happier. Very professional, knowledgeable and you can tell she really knows what she’s doing. Alpha Derm is the best!
The results were amazing. I strongly believe that a good filler job means you can’t spot a filler job and she nailed it. I look like me, but more refreshed and younger!
Love the place! The team is wonderful, skilled and very calming. Dr. Shrager is my favorite! Oh, and the renovation looks amazing!
