If you’ve never heard of a lymphatic drainage massage, you’re not alone. It’s a treatment that many of us haven’t experienced but could work wonders for tired bodies, congested bodies, or swollen bodies.
The name itself describes part of what the treatment does. Lymphatic drainage is a very gentle form of advanced massage therapy aimed at moving lymph under the skin using specialized, gentle and rhythmic techniques. However, this does not involve draining the entire lymphatic system. This helps in the formation and transport of lymph in the body.
The lymphatic system has many functions in the body. It forms a vital part of our immune system and is also designed to help remove waste products from the body’s cells. It is not controlled mechanically by the body and must rely on muscle movement, blood circulation, and the nervous system to help circulation.
The lymphatic system comprises large vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph which carries immune cells to tissues and organs to help you fight infections. Lymphatic drainage massage stimulates lymph circulation throughout the body, refreshes the immune system and flushes out toxins.
The fluid in the lymphatic system is called lymph, which is a viscous fluid. This system can become very slow and not work at its best for various reasons, including lack of muscle movement, poor nutrition, illnesses and infections.
A sluggish lymphatic system can prevent the body from effectively eliminating waste, causing a build-up, which manifests as edema, water retention.
Lymphatic drainage massage is designed to activate the musculature of the lymphatic system so that it contracts more often, increasing the rate of absorption of fluids and wastes from surrounding tissues. It is a non-invasive way to remove excess fluid faster and improve the efficiency of a healthier lymphatic system.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a deep tissue treatment applied by pressure using long upward strokes over your body. It aims to increase your lymphatic system flow, flush toxins from your body, promote relaxation, and reduce swelling. Toxins can build up in your body and cause illness if they are not eliminated.
Lymphatic drainage also helps to provide a therapeutic effect. Besides many health benefits, lymphatic drainage massage stimulates the feeling of good hormones in the body and increases the temperature of the muscles.
Plus, lymphatic drainage helps reduce swelling caused by fluid retention. If there is a problem in the lymphatic system, the fluid cannot move away from one body area and cause edema. Specific massage techniques help clear the way for the lymphatic system to help drain excess fluid.
It should also be noted that anyone suffering from certain illnesses (cancer, thrombosis, heart problems and thyroid dysfunction, for example) may not be able to undergo a lymphatic drainage massage or may need to have the massage adapted, so be sure to ” talk to your doctor first, as well as our massage therapist for any relevant medical history or problem.
Lymphatic drainage massage is useful when people experience the following conditions:
The lymphatic system is part of your immune system because it is one of the body’s defence mechanisms to protect you against infection and disease.
Our lymphatic organs such as tonsils, adenoids, bone marrow, spleen, and thymus all work together to produce hormones, lymph, and defence cells and filter and purify the blood and lymph fluid.
If bacteria, toxins, and other wastes enter these channels, they are transported to the lymph nodes, where the white blood cells filter and destroy them. Your lymph nodes are found throughout your body but are grouped in your neck, groin, and armpits.
Lymphatic massage is highly recommended if you often have a sore throat, colds, infections, or persistent fatigue.
If your lymphatic system is not working or is blocked, it can lead to a buildup of fluid called edema or water retention. Symptoms of edema include swelling of the legs and arms and swelling of the chest, genitals, or head.
Getting older, overweight or obese, and having rheumatism or psoriasis may increase the risk factors for the cause of the edema.
Because your lymphatic system does not have a pump, if you sit for a long time without moving, the lymph cannot flow easily, and that is why you may feel your feet or fingers swollen.
Lymphatic drainage massage is the perfect way to reduce water retention in your body caused by edema. This gentle technique is safe against your swelling by retaining water.
Using gentle movements, our massage therapists can promote circulation, activate lymphatic vessels, reduce swelling and help you feel good.
If you have swollen eyes and face or have frequent skin conditions, your immune system may not respond effectively to removing toxins.
When your skin is inflamed, overstimulation should be avoided. Lymphatic drainage massage helps you relax and gently stimulate white blood cells and lymph nodes to do their job.
A majority of what is known about the function of the lymphatic system has been linked and obtained through cancer research due to the ability of cancer to spread from a primary site to other places in the body via the system. Lymphatic.
However, over the years, there has been a greater understanding of the lymphatic system and its importance in developing many inflammatory conditions, particularly the skin, intestines and lungs.
Lymphatic drainage massage is beneficial for you if you suffer from skin disorders, frequent migraines, body pain, depression and digestive problems. So this is something that can benefit virtually anyone, whether or not you have a problem with the lymph nodes.
You know the feeling, don’t you?
You can’t sleep because every time you lie down, you can’t breathe well through your nose. You feel like your head is in a vice, and your sinuses are bothering you a lot.
Having a cold or the flu isn’t fun at the best of times, but when your nose becomes a tap and the threat of suffocation from the build-up of mucus is almost a reality, things start to get serious. Problem.
Sinusitis is inflammation of the sinuses resulting in common symptoms such as a thick nasal lining, a stuffy nose, and pain in the face—headaches, bad smell, sore throat and cough that prevent you from sleeping well.
Normally, the sinuses are filled with air, but when they are blocked and filled with fluid (bacteria, viruses, and fungi), they can grow and cause infection.
A lymphatic drainage massage can remove much of this congestive material from around the facial area if you suffer from a sinus infection. This system is a complex network of channels and vessels that transfer white blood cells and antibodies to your organs and tissues. These cells and antibodies arm your immune system and help your body fight infections. The lymphatic system has to rely on hundreds of muscle units, the movement of your body, and water supply to move lymph through the vessels.
Normal lymphatic movement in the body can be reduced by stress, fatigue, inactivity, cold temperatures, infections, chemical or food additives, even age and heredity.
This is where lymphatic drainage massage comes in. It is basically a holistic massage that gives your lymphatic system a tune. By manually stimulating the increased flow of lymph fluid, it can invigorate your immune system and flush out harmful toxins.
