Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Works to improve the function of the lymphatic system, which helps to remove and filter waste, toxins and excess fluid from the body.
Within the lymphatic system, a fluid known as lymph carries oxygen and nutrients to cells while gathering and removing toxins through lymph nodes. This makes the lymphatic system a vital part of your immune system. However, unlike blood which is pumped through the body by the heart, lymphatic fluid relies on pressure from surrounding blood vessels and muscles to stimulate flow.
Lymphatic drainage massage therapy is used to help encourage movement and drainage of lymphatic fluid. This manual lymph drainage process can be used to help:
- Reduce swelling in certain areas of the body, including the face, arms, and legs,
- Improve the appearance and health of your skin,
- Stimulate healing processes,
- Improve blood flow and circulation,
- Detoxify the body,
- Provide pain or stress relief.
Lymphatic drainage works to improve the function of the lymphatic system, which helps to remove and filter waste, toxins and excess fluid from the body. Good lymphatic circulation in the body will prevent lymph fluid from solidifying and binding with the collagen fibers that are in the fat cells.
