The Lymphatic System is a multifunctional system but generally regarded as the body’s Immune System – the body’s protection against infections. The Lymphatic System removes excess fluid, dead cells, bacteria, viruses and other waste products from the body tissues providing a healthier environment for all body cells. A malfuntioning system results in stagnation and congestion in the body tissues and therefore, deprivation of vital nutrients.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage boosts the Immune Sytem by enhancing the flow of lymph this in turn increases the elimination of toxins, reduces inflammation and promotes regeneration of tissue. For this reason it is also an ideal adjunct for pre- and post operative surgery.Read more
Benefits of Manual Lymphatic Drainage:
“About a year ago I had a weird infection in my leg. It got a bit dramatic when the doctor implied that I might need my leg chopping off but then couldn’t actually pinpoint the cause. One of the treatments I had was lymphatic drainage, three sessions of that and the infection cleared up completely and I am, thankfully, still with-leg.
The thing I remember most from those sessions is how amazingly relaxing they were. I am currently reading a meditation book and its references to relaxation reminded me of the treatment, so yesterday I went back for an hour session to remind myself of the experience. It was wonderful and so nice to be doing it without a mysterious ailment to worry about.
The treatment is like a gentle massage but rather than focusing on the muscles it focuses on the lymphatic system. The therapist is able to pinpoint blockages in the system and then works to free those blockages. I can feel the results there on the table but also a day later I can sense subtle differences, especially in my legs. The session has many benefits but more than anything it is so completely relaxing.
The place is in Central Hong Kong, called the Vitality Centre
The therapist is Jan Moor and you can find her e-mail on the centre’s website.”

“Following surgery on two occasions, I was recommended, by my doctors, to undertake lymphatic drainage. I have had lymphatic drainage with Jan Moor following both surgeries. I found that my recovery was considerably speeded up and swelling/fluid retention was much reduced as a result of treatment. The additional benefit I found was that it is very relaxing and seems to promote general well-being.”

“I have been seeing Jan on a regular basis due to problems with my arm after surgery and cancer treatments. I enjoy the sessions – they are very relaxing and I find Jan very professional, kind and involved with my healing. I now have much better range in my arm which is a direct result of the combination of Jan’s lymphetic drainage and myofascial therapy. I now come back for maintenance. I highly recommend Jan to anyone looking for professional lymphatic drainage.”
