Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Promoting Recovery and Good Health With a Gentle Touch
What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is all about water. It is a gentle touch therapeutic massage that promotes health and aids in recovery from illness. This powerful yet sublte technique enhances the removal of toxins from the cells and tissues and supports the immune system. It does all this by improving the flow of bodily water, known as lymph.
What is a Session Like?
Because many lymph vessels are just under the skin, moving the lymph requires a very light touch, barely the weight of a teaspoon of water. The practitioner uses flat hands and finger pads in soft, rhythmic movements.
Lymph Drainage Massage can be used alone or to enhance your regular massage session. Expect it to feel much lighter and slower than a typical massage.
Most people experience Lymph Drainage Massage as deeply relaxing and some fall into a deep restful sleep. It is recommended to drink extra water after a session to replenish your fluids, and continue the improved flow of lymphatic fluid. Many people report feeling rejuvenated, invigorated or simply lighter in the hours or even days following a session.
People are looking to Lymph Drainage Massage to reduce the effects of stress and aid recovery from surgery and illness. It is being used to relieve the discomforts of swelling. But beyond its restorative uses for specific conditions, this gentle yet powerful technique can be a key for anyone wishing to relax, rejuvenate and improve overall health and well-being.
A Vital Role in Perserving Good Health
The lymphatic fluid is rich in immune cells that fight viruses, bacteria, and other illness causing pathogens. It circulates through the body, transporting these cells where they are needed. Lymph fluid passes through lymph nodes, which produce new immune cells and filter out toxins and wastes. The swollen “glands” you feel when fighting illness are your lymph nodes working.
Lymph Drainage Massage uses light touch to enhance lymphatic circulation. This improves the flow of immune cells, making it easier for the body to fend off disesase and infection. Increased lymph circulation also helps reduce metobolic waste and toxins which frees up resources your body can use to repair and maintain tissues, keeping you healthy and in balance.
Stress, illness, infection, and injuries can all impair lymphatic function. This can leave you feeling fatigued, sore, or ill. Lymph Drainage Massage is exceptionally effective in helping restore lymphatic function, which can address a number of health challenges.
