Lymphatic Drainage Massages in Tokyo 

This kind of massage is extremely popular in Japan and uses a series of specific motions applied strongly throughout the body, focusing on areas with a high concentration of lymph nodes. While less of a tissue relaxer than Swedish or deep tissue massages, this method works to energize the lymphatic system, which regulates the detoxification process of cell metabolism. Many love this type of massage for its benefits to their overall well-being, circulation, and digestion.
