Lymphatic treatments


What is Lymphatic Drainage or Lymphatic Activation Massage?

Lymphatic drainage massage or treatment uses gentle, repetitive strokes to facilitate the lymphatic system. It is a specialized massaged. Often referred to as a ‘detox massage’, it supports your body’s internal filtration system. This helps keep your immune system in check, and so much more. 

What is the lymphatic system?

The lymphatic system is instrumental in protecting us from infection and disease. This network is part of the body’s immune system and assists in removing toxins, waste and other unwanted materials from the body. 

Why is the lymphatic system important in facials? 

Stagnant lymph can cause a build up in the skin, leading to acne, congestion, dryness and dehydration, premature aging, and skin inflammation. By stimulation or "activating" the lymph flow consistently, skin conditions improve significantly over repeated treatments. 

Full Moon Esthetics uses a variety of manual massage techniques, as well as vibration and massage tools to achieve lymphatic activation, including, a unique method called Jade Rolling.

While all our facials include basic lymph drainage movements, only our Lymphatic Drainage Facials include our special lymphatic activation massage and Jade Rolling for enhanced skin treatments.

(Due to increase of circulation and activation of the lymph, this treatment is not recommended for ongoing cancer patients.)
