Why act on your lymphatic system and lymph?

Renata what?

This lymphatic drainage technique. Invented in the 2000s by a Brazilian masseuse (Renata França herself), this so-called "revolutionary" method has now taken the world by storm with stunning "before and after" photos! It promises results that are immediately visible after the 60-minute session: a refined silhouette, a deflated stomach and a feeling of well-being and absolute lightness.

Why have lymphatic drainage?

It's a rather seductive promise, especially when the advertised benefits specifically address everyday ailments such as heavy legs, a tendency to store fat in the thighs and a belly that's often swollen or bloated. But how exactly does it work? 

Lymph is a liquid that circulates throughout the body via a network of small vessels that run parallel to the bloodstream: the lymphatic system. The primary role of the lymph is to transport waste products that need to be eliminated from the body. The lymphatic system also plays an important immune function. Numerous white blood cells circulate in the lymph, and lymph nodes distributed along the network trap and destroy microbes.

The lymphatic system becomes exhausted and less efficient. As a result, the body stores more water and fat. This is one of the reasons why cellulite appears or why it is very difficult to get rid of certain localized fatty deposits... This is why lymphatic massage is necessary!

"A sedentary lifestyle, pollution and a bad diet all contribute to a build up of toxins in the body"

How is the Renata method different?

This method differs completely from traditional lymphatic drainage, which is usually very gentle and light (like effleure) and shallow.The Renata França method is largely >inspired by ancestral lymphatic drainage techniques (pumping at lymph nodes, particularly in the groin or under the armpits), but combines them with a toning manual sculpting massage performed with firm pressure and an accelerated rhythm (on calves, thighs, stomach and arms).

This technique reduces edema, activates blood circulation and potentiates a complex network of vessels where body fluids where body fluids pass, thus reducing the dreaded cellulite. The result is a less bloated and shapely body with a more accelerated metabolism and, therefore, a feeling of well-being.

Our opinion on the Renata França lymphatic drainage method

"I loved it! Already, even if it has nothing to do with a Californian massage, I find the moment very pleasant: no pain, it's invigorating but it feels good (especially on my calves, what a pleasure)! The stomach is a less pleasant zone, as it's often emotionally charged. You really have to relax and trust the practitioner to let her deeply manipulate this sensitive area. After an hour's massage, my legs, and especially my thighs thighs were visibly less swollen, my stomach is flatter and I feel lighter.and I feel lighter. I regret that the effects and the "detox" feeling aren't more long-term (2 days for my part), but as with sport or palpate-rolling, it's the recurrence of the practice that enables the results to be maintained and maximized." - Fanny, Communications Manager

How often should I perform a lymphatic drainage?

Renata Franca practitioners recommend lymphatic drainage as a "cure" of 5 sessions at a timebut it can also be carried out 1 maintenance session per month.

A 60-minute massage costs between €150 and €180.

Top tip: Don’t eat before the massage and eat something light afterwards so as not to feel ill and to really benefit from the effects of the treatment. After the massage you feel as if you have been on a detox so it’s the ideal moment to do a day of juice or soup fasting.
