Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic drainage is a holistic approach to promoting a healthy lymphatic system.
The lymphatic system is a complex network of vessels and ducts that move fluid throughout the body and is responsible for moving toxins away from healthy cells and carrying germ-fighting materials to cells when they are under attack by viruses. Though fluid moves through the lymphatic system, it does not have its own pumping mechanism. Lymphatic drainage is a type of therapy that is intended to help the body produce a free-flowing lymphatic system.
When the lymphatic system becomes blocked, lymph nodes may become swollen. Further, the system fails to remove the body's toxins and can even affect white blood cell counts.
Lymphatic drainage is believed to reduce blockage, which promotes health in the lymphatic system as well as other bodily systems, such as the circulatory, respiratory, muscular, and endocrine systems. It has been recommended for conditions like lymphederma, in which a blockage in the lymphatic system causes swelling in the arms or legs. Some therapists believe that lymphatic drainage therapy can also reduce allergies, menstrual cramps, colds and other illnesses caused by viruses.
This type of therapy consists of a manual massage. Such a massage primarily focuses on specific lymph nodes and points of the body, as well as the natural flow of the lymphatic system. To help lymph fluid move through the body, special rhythmic hand strokes are used, which many clients consider very relaxing. It has been said lymphatic drainage massage will reduce blockages of the lymphatic system, which in turn promotes a healthier body.
