Lymphatic Drainage Massage
If you suffer from fibromyalgia, lymphedema, or other health conditions that cause a build-up of lymphatic fluid, lymphatic drainage massage can give you much-needed relief.
Our bodies are truly masterpieces of design. Our lymphatic system is tasked with removing toxins and waste, so it doesn’t accumulate. Sometimes, though, our bodies can use a little extra help.
What Is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
When there’s a buildup of toxins, it’s not uncommon to experience swelling, circulation problems, insomnia, and even digestive and skin problems. This form of massage is super-gentle, performed with a light touch rather than deep manipulation of your musculature. The rhythmic strokes characteristic of this kind of massage get your lymph fluid flowing, ushering toxins to the organs that filter them.
Additionally, this form of massage helps to keep your immune system strong, reduce cortisol levels (that’s the stress hormone), aid in pain relief, and reduce swelling. However, if you are currently receiving treatment for cancer or deal with autoimmune challenges, be sure to consult your physician before getting a massage. It’s especially important to choose a massage therapist with specific training and certification in lymphatic drainage massage.
If your lymphatic system is blocked, you may experience bloating, headaches, swollen glands, fatigue, skin issue, and more. That is to say, there’s no need to “suffer through” any of that discomfort. Instead, why not come in for a lymphatic drainage massage and see how much better you’ll feel. We’ll customize a massage therapy plan for your unique needs. Book your appointment today.
