Lymphatic Drainage Massage

What is Lymphatic Drainage massage?

A massage therapist with appropriate training performs a painless and relaxing, whole-body massage. The entire procedure physically stimulates the lymphatic system to move excessive fluids known as edema that are associated with the bodys lymphatic system. The movement of lymphatic fluid through lymphatic nodes purifies and detoxifies unhealthy fluid that surrounds our connective tissues.


What body conditions can warrant Lyphatic Drainage Massage?

Certified therapists are often referred patients by medical doctors for treatment of acute and chronic lymphedema, neuromuscular disorders, post-mastectomy pain, fibrosis and other conditions. Sports injuries, sprains, strains, post plastic surgery, sinus and congestion problems, scar tissue reduction and stress are some of the other conditions that can benefit from lymphatic drainage massage.


What functions does the body’s lymphatic system perform?

The lymphatic system is composed of assorted size vessels and lymph nodes located throughout the body. There are hundreds of lymph nodes in the body whose function is to filter the lymph fluid. An important part of the bodys immune system, lymph fluid contains cells that remove harmful bacteria, viruses and other undesirable substances. The lymphatic fluid system does not have a muscle similar to the heart, which would aid in pumping the lymphatic fluid consistently. Therefore, when the lymphatic nodes or vessels become damaged due to surgery, injury or for any other reason, gentle lymphatic drainage massage stimulates the lymphatic fluid flow. Lymph fluid is normally encouraged to flow by the bodys natural motion of muscles, organs and other body parts.


Is this massage therapy for me?

Some people have more serious medical reasons to receive this massage therapy, however; others regularly receive lymphatic drainage massage to simply aid in the reduction of minor swelling, congestion, headaches, acne and other conditions. Many people wish to encourage their immune system to function as effectively as possible and choose to receive this relaxing therapy.
