Lymphatic drainage has become a hot topic in recent months, and Jennifer Aniston is totally on board.
Google searches for the term lymphatic drainage massage have doubled in the last 30 days alone, and social media is full of people documenting their attempts to depuff and shift water retention, whether by way of a gua sha tool or a brisk walk.
The star just posted a selection of summer snaps on Instagram, one of which shows her lying down in a fitness studio wearing some lymphatic drainage (or compression) boots. “What are they?” I hear you ask. They use compressed air to inflate and deflate around the user’s legs, which mechanically mobilizes the body’s natural lymphatic drainage system.
They’re also said to be great for improving circulation, shifting toxins, reducing recovery time, and generally helping to improve joint health. The rhythmic movement also makes them rather relaxing.
While you can buy your own for home use—Therabody’s RecoveryAir Prime Pneumatic Compression Boots are said to be excellent but will set you back $399—a number of experts now incorporate their use into wider salon treatments. In London, you might head to Debbie Thomas’s Chelsea clinic for glowing skin, but you can also book in for a stint in the Slimyonik Air Bodystyler lymphatic drainage boots as an add-on to your skin treatment. You can also try them at 180 The Strand and LondonCryo.
If they’re good enough for Jennifer Aniston…
