The Lymphatic System is our body’s waste removal system. It is a network of vessels similar to the circulatory system. These vessels are filled with a fluid called Lymph, which carries metabolic waste, toxins, infections and other foreign materials to Lymph nodes, where they are then destroyed.
Our Lymphatic system can easily become stagnant from dehydration, fatigue, stress, infection, etc and can result in water retention, cellulite, chronic pain, and fatty deposits. A sluggish lymphatic system can also be the cause of chronic sinusitis, swollen glands, ankles and eyes, upper respiratory problems, throat problems, colds and pneumonia.
A lymphatic drainage massage is performed on a massage table with the client undressed to their comfort level, always modestly draped. The technique itself manually helps accelerate lymph flow and is very gentle, steady and harmonious, the pressure being no more that weight of a nickel. Too much pressure could regress or damage the lymph capillaries. Prepare to feel VERY relaxed and perhaps a bit flushed!
1. For Pregnancy and After
For pregnant and lactating women, LDM gives comfort especially in legs and feet when fluid retention strikes. Considering the problems with blocked ducts and sore tight breasts of these superb Moms, breast feeding would be enhanced by this treatment.
2. For Healing
How about reducing pain and discomfort during surgery, injury or headache? This gentle massage therapy treatment would do the trick. Decongesting the swollen and sore tissues through therapy, pain and discomfort would be reduced. Lymphatic drainage massage is commonly recommended pre/post surgery.
3. For Skin-care & Sinuses
Skin care routine like applying cleanser, toner and moisturizer, is a must-have. But, the use of massage would cause additional, visible results like a clearer complexion, reduced puffiness around the eyes, and lessened appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead. For the allergy sufferers, get sinus pressure relief with LDM.
4. For Toxin-removal
Lymphatic drainage massage helps ease and support our lymph system. Our immune systems work 24/7 to eliminate toxins and metabolic waste which can weigh you down and make you sluggish when the system is overloaded. Give your system a helping hand, literally.
5. For Relaxation
Your level of well-being is enhanced as you feel cleansed and rejuvenated. The gentle treatment is quite soothing.
