What Is Lymphatic 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? Lymph drainage massage therapy!
At Reflections Therapeutic Massage, our therapists are experienced with this technique so you don’t have to worry about how to drain lymph nodes on your own. Our professionals are trained to use gentle wave-like motions to encourage fluid to flow with your lymph nodes as intended.
The Purpose of the Lymphatic System
The lymphatic system is 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. Your lymphatic system also absorbs fats from your intestines.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage Benefits: There are so many therapeutic lymphatic drainage benefits.
The most obvious is circulation. Your lymphatic system doesn’t have its own mechanism for pumping fluid around your body. This means that 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 lymph drainage massage helps move the lymph around to reduce that swelling.
With lymph drainage therapy, we can relieve congestion in your lymph nodes and break up scar tissue and drain fluid deposits. Just like with any scar tissue massage, this therapy can renew 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 a lymphatic therapy 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 a lymph drainage 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.
Draining fluid from cells with lymphatic therapy is advantageous in many ways. Some of the lymphatic drainage benefits include:
- Improving the production and distribution of antibodies and lymphocytes, thereby boosting the immune system
- Stimulating the system’s filtering process, which helps remove toxins and bacteria from the body
- Enhancing the autonomic nervous system
- Calming the sympathetic nervous system, which promotes activity
- Stimulating the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes relaxation
- Improving levels of relaxation and reducing stress
Yes! Massaging the lymph nodes allows for the fluid to flow around the body as it’s intended.
Lymph drainage therapy is recommended every three months, but can vary from person to person. A consultation with a therapist can help you get a better idea of how often you need to schedule lymphatic drainage massage sessions.
You are fully capable of a lymph drainage massage for the face and understanding how to drain lymph nodes in the neck, but seeking assistance from a therapist who has spent years studying proper technique is highly recommended.
