Lymphatic Massage is a very specialized type of massage used to detox the lymph nodes. The technique involved is very unique. The lymphatic Drainage Massage is the manual manipulation of the lymphatic ducts using gentle, rhythmic massaging of the skin to stimulate the flow of lymph and its return to the blood circulation system. The treatment is very gentle, and a typical session will involve drainage of the neck, trunk and extremity involved.
Lymph nodes act as the garbage cans of the body and catch all the waste.
What is the Lymphatic System ?
The lymphatic system is a quiet system that works to keep us healthy. It is composed of lymph vessels, lymph nodes and organs. The primary function of lymph nodes is to filter and purify. Lymph drainage allows the body to flush out the waste in the body.
The quality of the air, water, food, etc.. causes significant accumulations of waste products in our body, some of which are toxic. In many cases, this accumulation of toxins causes us to feel low energy levels, fatigue, mood swings etc..
Your lymphatic system helps eliminate your body’s waste. A healthy, active lymphatic system uses the natural movements of smooth muscle tissue to do this. However, a not healthy lymphatic system can cause fluids and wastage to build up in your lymph system , a condition known as lymphedema.
When the fluid builds up it will not only be uncomfortable but it will cause pain and heaviness in the area. Lymphatic massage is a gentle pressure technique used to move the waste.
Why does lymphatic circulation slow down ?
The lymphatic flow can slow down for many reasons, such as swelling, chronic inflammation, lack of physical activity, stress, fatigue, emotional shock, age. When lymphatic circulation slows down, the regeneration of the cells becomes less effective. This condition allows toxins and waste to accumulate.
What does Lymphatic Drainage Massage accomplish ?
Basically, lymphatic massage increases the volume of lymph flow, helping to get rid of the body toxins.
What is the technique used in the Lymphatic Drainage Massage ?
The technique is superficial, right underneath the skin. Rhythmic pushing, gentle, light touch, non-invasive.
