Lymphatic Drainage massage – What is it?
You might have heard of Lymphatic drainage massage. It is a specialised form of treatment, it is a particular type of massage. It can also help to reduce cellulite, scar tissue, spider veins, redness and acne.
The benefits of this form of treatment.
There are many benefits to you having a lymphatic drainage massage. It can help with the reduction of lymphedema within the lymph nodes. As well as this, these massages can also help hugely with unwanted water retention and swelling. This type of treatment is of huge benefit to your body as it helps to remove toxins.
By tapping into your lymphatic system you are helping to detox your body in a more effective way. The systems primary function is to transport lymph (a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells) throughout the body. This fluid is what helps to eliminate toxins from our bodies by collecting them and pushing them out.
What does a Lymphatic drainage massage involve?
When you receive a lymphatic drainage massage, the flow and circulation of the lymph is encouraged. This means they are able to circulate throughout the body more freely, collecting more toxins as they go. The end result is a decreased number of toxins in your body, and therefore a body that is fully cleansed.
If you have decided to opt for a lymphatic drainage massage, you should expect a gentle pressure across the whole body, often starting from the feet and working upwards in order to stimulate flow and circulation for the lymph nodes.
The masseuse will use their hands to gently rub, stroke, tap and push the skin in the directions that follow the system. During the massage, your spleen, collarbone, armpit and popliteal are likely to be targeted in order to ensure all lymph’s are circulating around all areas of the body and you are receiving the full benefits of the massage.
This type of massage is a pain-free and effective way to ensure your metabolic rate is increased. It also removes all toxins. As always, ensure you receive professional treatments.
