Lymphatic Drainage Massage Therapy
Every area of the body has a drainage system that draws fluids to be recycled or flushed from tissues. Lymph is like a wave – unseen and efficient until an accident, condition or surgery makes it sluggish or backlogged. Slowed lymph leads to swelling and is known to effect the immune system.
If you require this, be sure to book in with us.
What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage Therapy?
The lymphatic system, a sister circulatory system to the cardiovascular, plays a crucial role in our body’s ability to ward off disease, heal from injury, and detoxify.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of massage that helps stimulate the lymphatic system and encourages the flow of lymph fluid. A healthy lymphatic system can help your body feel younger and help you stay healthy.
Why should I get Lymphatic Drainage Massage Therapy?
Unlike blood circulation, the lymphatic system has no central pump, such as the heart, to move fluid to the lymph glands. Instead, it uses the massaging effect of surrounding muscles to move the fluid.
The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is vital to our body’s ability to drain fluids, detoxify, regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and foreign substances, and maintain a healthy immune system, which the Lymphatic Drainage Massage helps with.
How does Lymphatic Drainage Massage Therapy work?
We use three versions of lymphatic drainage massage to accomplish different goals – Activation, Encouragement and Drainage. Loosen Up offers consultation to define what type of lymph therapy best suits your needs.
Post-surgery lymph care involves diverting blocked lymph to reduce swelling and helping vessels re-establish their connections to the lymph system Sue has developed a scar sculpting and remodeling treatment for post-tummy tuck and liposuction swelling and lumps.
Lymph activation clears larger lymph vessels in the neck and abdomen for better circulation. People with fibromyalgia or travel jet lag love how these treatments boost energy.
Encouragement is the most popular form of lymph available today – it combines activation techniques with condensed drainage therapy – the so-called “lymph light” for critical areas such as the neck, armpits and abdomen.
Lymph drainage is the most detailed and effective of the methods. Light, gentle touch opens and flushes the entire lymph system. This is the most complete and long-lasting lymph therapy and is recommended as a prelude to a course of deep-tissue therapy for ailments and performance.
Who is Lymphatic Drainage Massage Therapy ideal for?
Lymphatic drainage massage therapy is ideal for those who easily get fatigued, catch colds, and suffer from swelling and get chills as well as for those who wish to relax and improve their health.
I love Sue! She is the best! Her massage therapy is amazing, very professional, nice office! Very accommodating and friendly service. I would recommend her to anybody who is needing a great massage, she focuses on medical massage as much as muscle-solving deep tissue massages. My back is feeling much better.
