What Is Lymph Drainage Therapy?
Your lymphatic system plays a vital role in your health. But sometimes an infection, lack of sleep or exercise, excess stress, aging, or an injury can disrupt the function of your lymphatic system. The solution? Lymphatic drainage massage therapy! At Reflections Therapeutic Massage, our therapists are experienced with this technique. They know how to use gentle wave-like motions to encourage fluid to flow with your lymph nodes like it’s supposed to. Here’s what you need to know about this form of therapy.
The Purpose of the Lymphatic System
If you want to understand the benefits, you must first understand the importance of the lymphatic system. It’s composed of many tubes that process your body’s draining fluid, also known as “lymph.” This fluid comes from the blood vessels in your tissues. It travels to your lymph nodes through your bloodstream.
Your lymphatic system behaves as your body’s personal sewer system. It controls the amount of fluid in your tissue. Because it’s part of your immune system, it can also detect foreign bacteria and trigger the best response. Finally, your lymphatic system absorbs fats from your intestines.
The Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage Therapy
There are so many ways people can benefit from the power of LDM. The most obvious is circulation. Your lymphatic system doesn’t have its own mechanism for pumping fluid around your body. So if you’re inactive for a long period of time, the lymph won’t be able to flow easily. This can lead to swollen feet and fingers, but a massage helps move the lymph around to reduce that swelling.
We can help relieve congestion in your lymph nodes through lymphatic therapy. We can also break up scar tissue and drain fluid deposits. Just like with any scar tissue massage, this therapy can renew health cells and tissue that are incredibly valuable following surgery or cosmetic procedures like a facelift, tummy tuck, or liposuction.
If you’re trying to lose weight, you may experience greater success with a boost from lymphatic drainage Session. This is because this massage will boost your metabolism so you can burn calories more effectively.
A lymphatic drainage massage may improve the appearance of skin imperfections like blotchiness, puffiness, or even cellulite. A massage increases blood flow and circulation in the areas where you have skin concerns. This reduces the toxics that are at fault for dimply skin.
Your lymphatic system plays a vital role in helping you fight off colds and other viruses. When you get massage, you are actually boosting your body’s natural ability to fight off infections. This can lead to a faster recovery time.
Finally, if you have a lymphatic system blockage (also known as a lymphoedema), lymphatic drainage massage therapy may be able to supplement other medical treatments.
