What Are the Side Effects of Lymphatic Massage?
Lymphatic massage works by encouraging the colorless lymph fluid to move about the body to fight infection and disease. This treatment is commonly performed after certain surgeries, including mastectomies. According to Embody Health and Beauty Guide, a lymphatic massage can last around 30 minutes for a single area or as long as two hours for a full-body lymphatic massage. As with any procedure, side effects during and after a lymphatic massage are possible.
