Lymphatic massage is a gentle yet potent healing modality that brings health and balance to the body. This therapy is a light rhythmic touch that improves circulation and accelerates the lymphatic flow through tissues to heal injuries and surgery sites. This slow, rhytmical, soft touch is painless and relaxing. It has a calming effect on the nervous system thereby reducing pain and stress.
Who Should Get It? Lymph massage can benefit just about everyone. If you're feeling tired and low on energy, or if you've been sick and feeling like your body is fighting to get back on track, lymph massage would likely serve you well.
In addition, athletes, surgical patients, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue sufferers, as well as those wanting a fresh look may want to consider lymphatic massage. Also, anyone on a diet might want to add a few lymphatic sessions to enhance their results. Aside from helping to facilitate weight loss, lymphatic massage is thought to improve the functionality of the immune system as a whole, keeping you healthy and able to continue performing your regular exercise routine without the delays or setbacks that would be associated with periods of illness.
Specialized Healing for Surgical Patients. This therapy is recommended because patients who receive lymphatic massage heal quicker. Surgery always produces swelling around the surgical areas. Lymphatic therapy increases the flow to the lymph already circulating throughout the body to clear away the additional fluids. In general the lymph system clears toxins from the cells, excess water and proteins. The gentle, rhythmic motion acts like a pump to make the lymph flow faster and more efficiently.
