This treatment combines, in a single massage, the best of both worlds: models and drains. In a session of 60 minutes, with 20 maneuvers, we promise the immediate loss of a few centimeters and volume! Its success is due to the fact that the results of the method are of immediate effect, both internally and externally. This means that, after the massage, the retained liquid and toxins are eliminated, providing a reduction of measures and shaping the body. This method is a combination of modeling and reducing massage maneuvers with lymphatic drainage developed by Brazilian beautician Renata França.The technique was created and patented by Renata Franca ten years ago, when nobody thought that this two-in-one method would be possible. This is because both treatments require very different touches. This technique will have an immediate effect at the level of the abdomen and legs, reduces centimeters and eliminates the swelling of fluid retention, supposedly, in the blink of an eye. All of this will result in uniform skin, more defined muscles and a refined silhouette.

How the technique works on the body

Our circulatory system is formed by the blood and lymphatic systems.It is precisely this lymphatic system that performs the flow responsible for eliminating toxins from our body, through a liquid called lymph. However, the lymph is absorbed more quickly than it is eliminated, which can generate an accumulation of fluid between the cells, which is responsible for making our body swollen.Lymphatic drainage stimulates our lymphatic and blood systems, causing the elimination of toxins to happen more quickly, and eliminating the swelling of the body.


There are those who choose to do the massage every day, but the ideal is that the treatment is done twice a week. Results vary with different metabolisms, but tend to last between two to three days. It is important not to forget that eating habits count too!

Safety and Contraindications

This technique is only advised against anyone who has a fever, in inflammatory or infectious processes and who is at risk of thrombosis. 

Can it be done in the postoperative period?

The good news is that yes, it can. Men and women can opt for this technique that is proven to improve recovery after some surgeries.

After which procedures is Drainage indicated?

Procedures such as abdominoplasty, liposuction and mammoplasty cause the patient to retain more fluids than normal and, with surgical intervention, the body is even slower, thus causing bruising and swelling.

Manual lymphatic Drainage on a budget

Unfortunately, few insurance companies cover this type of massage unless its prescribed as part of physical therapy for  another health issue.

We do NOT work with any insurance company, so please make sure to contact your health insurance company and check your policy coverage. However, there are some ways you can reduce the financial burden of treating your body on a regular basis. If you plan to have regular Manual Lymphatic Drainage sessions at Massage Sense, we developed several discounted packages that will certainly meet your needs.


Do not use massage therapy to replace your regular medical care or as a reason to postpone seeing a health care provider about a medical problem. If you have a medical condition and are unsure whether massage therapy would be appropriate for you, discuss your concerns with your health care provider.
