Lymph Drainage Therapy is a gentle hands-on technique used to detect the rhythm, direction, depth and quality of the lymph flow throughout the body. The therapist, using slow, gentle pressure with soft pumping (wave-like) movements, encourages the lymph to flow in the direction of the lymph nodes where the lymph fluid is filtered and then returned to the blood.
Stress, fatigue, lack of physical activity, infection and aging are some of the factors that can cause the lymph circulation to stagnate. When this occurs, fluids, proteins, cells and toxins accumulate and cellular functioning is compromised.
lymphatic drainage massage therapy helps to drain fluid liquid deposit, congestion, swelling for swollen lymph nodes, and to break up scar tissue build up. And like medical or scar tissue massage, manual lymphatic drainage massage therapy also helps to regenerate new healthy tissues and cells especially for injuries or after surgery recovery healing. Lymphatic drainage massage therapy is good after wrinkle facelift, liposuction, tummy tuck, cellulite-stretch mark reduction, lipo-breast implant cosmetic plastic surgeries.
