Who Is It Good For?
Lymphatic Drainage Massage is for individuals who have lymph-edema and post cosmetics surgeries. Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a therapeutic treatment of choice among a variety of massage lovers due to its many benefits.
What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
Lymphatic drainage massage is a specialized massage type that gently assists the lymphatic system in maintaining the body’s fluid balance, and immune mechanisms. The system’s network of vessels and nodes contains lymph, a mixture of water, proteins, immune system
components, waste products, and other remnants of cell metabolism.
Lymph nodes, which filter out the debris, are found throughout the body, with especially large groups of them in the neck, armpits, and groin. These major collections of lymph nodes ensure that the lymph passes through as many nodes as possible before it returns to the circulatory system. During a lymph drainage massage, a specially trained massage therapist uses a series of light gliding, stretching, and slow motions over the client’s body. The light rhythmic movements stimulate the lymphatic system with proximal and distal strokes– allowing lymph flow through the tissues and lymph nodes. This massage follows a specific sequence over area needed to be treated.
Why Get (L.D.M)?
Today, men and women incorporate lymphatic drainage massage into their wellness routines given its detoxification and aesthetic benefits. Proponents say the massage technique is effective for pain relief, muscle tension, digestive problems, cellulite, allergies, headaches, and a long list of other issues. It’s also being used following cosmetic surgery to reduce swelling and flush byproducts of anesthesia out of the body. Lymphatic drainage massage has become a popular spa treatment for skin care, managing season allergies, detoxification, jet lag, and general stress reduction.
Why Choose Lymph Drainage over a more Traditional Massage?
Conventional massage like a Swedish massage or deep tissue massage is a wonderful experience for your muscles, joints, nervous system, and attitude. Deciding to receive a lymphatic drainage massage goes a step further. You may want to cleanse your body’s tissues during the change of seasons, after an illness or injury, or following a particularly stressful time in your life. Lymphatic drainage massage focuses on detox and purification - it revitalizes your energy.

Many of us are experiencing the fatigue that comes with life -- and life transitions. With fatigue often comes other emotions that can derail us like frustration, lack of clarity...feeling disconnected and afraid.
How do we handle life and life transitions with courage, grace and curiosity?
First, slow down! You might be thinking that's impossible with "so much to do".
As the summer winds down we must as well.
The "transitions" we and our loved ones are experiencing can be related to back to school, back to work, back to life in perhaps a "new" way.
If we aren't mindful we will take on both what they are feeling in addition to what we are feeling!!! Yup, it's "a lot".
As I've written about in the past, especially as it relates to "anxious energy", at times it is hard to discern what we are feeling and where / who it is coming from!
In addition, times of transition and change often bring about this "anxious" energy. While it's not always pleasant, the discomfort that comes with newness and the unknown is normal!
And yes, it's healthy. Rest assured, you are not alone. It is simply part of being human :)
What else can we do?
Embrace ways of being that return us to a state of emotional balance...also known as equanimity.
As I talk about in Chapter Two of my book Reclaiming JOY, the emotional roller coaster is not sustainable and keeps us stuck. We react and often cause more turmoil.
This simple practice, called BRFWA, (that we love and use often at the Sanctuary) brings us back to a relaxed state - where we focus on "being" and bring our emotions back in balance.
From this place of emotional balance or equanimity, we are able to ride the emotional wave without drowning in it / losing ourselves for too long. In equanimity we find our way back to peace and clarity and perhaps even a chuckle. Once clear, we are able to take clear, focused action that keeps us on the path of peace as we move toward our goals.
BRFWA Explained (Give yourself at least 3-5 minutes to experience this).
Breathe: As a wave of emotion comes over you, slow down your breath.
Allow your breath to flow freely in and out.
Relax: As you slow down your breath, your mind and body will begin to relax.
Soften your muscles, let go of mental and physical tension.
Feel: As you relax, you are able to soften into what you are feeling.
Stay open to the sensations and emotions moving through you in this moment.
Watch: While feeling, you watch your experience closely, neither grasping what is pleasant nor pushing away what is painful.
Allow: As you watch, you allow the process to unfold.
You accept yourself and your experience exactly as it is, dropping the need to change it in any way.
BRWFA is the practice of being present.
Being present is what we learn during meditation.

"I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." -Thomas Alva Edison
We are busy. Busier than ever. Perhaps our greatest challenge right now is finding how to "be" in all we "do". For many, "doing" takes precedence over "being".
Why? Many reasons. Learned behavior, expectations, our devices, the noisy mind.
Humans are stubborn. We resist pausing the doing to connect to our being. At some point, we get tired of resisting and surrender. Sometimes we surrender on our own, sometimes we are forced to (think crisis).
Whatever you are experiencing, when you make time to "be", you renew body, mind, and spirit. You give yourself the opportunity to find what works in YOUR life, for uniquely YOU.
We support you.
Our mission is to provide Sanctuary for body, mind, and spirit.
Whether you are coming to the Sanctuary for massage and bodywork, a skin renewing facial, meditation, private yoga, or an energy healing session, we got you. Maybe you are in the area and simply pop in to inhale the scents and check out our hand picked products (see new candles below made by our very own James). We love seeing you.
Thank you for allowing us to be part of your journey. Teamwork makes the dream work! We are grateful for the partnership.
