Lymphatic drainage works to improve immune function, reduce swelling and enhance overall well-being, but we often get asked: “is it ever too late to start lymphatic drainage?” The short answer? NO! 

We’ve taken a deep dive into all things lymphatic drainage – including specifics on why it’s never too late to get started!

Understanding the lymphatic system

The lymphatic system is a crucial system of vessels, nodes and ducts that pass through almost all bodily tissues, working to rid the body of toxins, wastes and other unwanted materials. It allows the circulation of “lymph fluid” through the body in a similar way to blood – essential for fluid balance, absorption of fatty acids in the stomach, and immune system regulation. 

Consider it like your body’s waste disposal for all the nasty toxins that are picked up on a daily basis, ensuring that build up doesn’t occur in the body or brain. 

When the lymph stops flowing freely throughout the body, the lymphatic tissue can become inflamed, swollen and sore to touch, and your metabolism and immune system slows down, making you feel tired, toxic and unwell. 

Lymphatic drainage involves techniques such as massage, compression therapy and specific, manual exercises to stimulate the flow of lymph fluid. This ensures that lymph fluid moves easily through the body, unclogging any buildup, and can relieve a number of conditions such as pain, inflammation, cellulite, and the symptoms of long-term conditions such as lymphedema and lipoedema. 

While the lymphatic system can be a neglected system, it’s such an important aspect of your body and, by engaging in lymphatic drainage, you can experience health and well-being in ways you never thought possible before!

Is it ever too late to start lymphatic drainage?

The human body has a pretty remarkable ability to adapt and heal at any age. While we may sometimes think we’re “too old” to make changes, or that the damage we’ve done has gone “too far” the reality is that starting lymphatic drainage can be beneficial at any age – and regardless of previous health conditions.

why it's never too late for lymphatic drainage

With lymphatic drainage, you can enjoy:

Improved immune function

As the lymphatic system is a big part of the immune system itself, enhancing lymphatic flow can boost your immune system, making it easier to fight off infections and prevent illness. But, in general, this improved immune function can work to give you a better overall sense of health and well-being.

Reduced swelling

Even if swelling has been a long-term issue, lymphatic drainage is amazing at reducing fluid build up. By guiding lymph fluid through the body whether through massage, compression therapy, or other sequences, you can finally experience relieved swelling. 

And this is true for those living with lymphedema or lipoedema too! Many individuals who suffer with life-long swelling and inflammation can finally experience relief with the aid of lymphatic drainage.


As the lymphatic system is so focused on not just moving fluid around – but draining toxins too – lymphatic drainage can be an incredible way to eliminate toxins in your body and improve overall health and energy levels – no matter when you start.
