Lymphatic Drainage Massage isn't only for individuals who have lymphedema. Lymphatic Drainage Massage has recently become 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, blood circulation, 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 gliding, compressing, stretching, and cupping motions over the client’s body. The light rhythmic movements, applied without massage oil, stimulate the lymphatic system without compressing the vessels – allowing lymph to move easily through the tissues and lymph nodes. This massage follows a specific sequence over the body, so lymph isn’t trapped anywhere, making sure every area is treated with care.
Why get a lymphatic drainage massage?
Today, men and women incorporate lymphatic drainage massage into their wellness routines given its detoxification and esthetic benefits. Proponents say the massage technique is effective for pain relief, digestive problems, hormonal imbalances, skin conditions (such as acne and rosacea), 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.
