Lymphatic Drainage massage focuses on enhancing the natural function of the body’s lymphatic system. This physiological system is like our waste treatment plant and is responsible for the removal of various toxins, microorganisms, waste products, and other foreign substance from the body. This form of massage utilizes light touch in specific anatomical regions in precise ways that stimulate lymph drainage. Since lymphatic function is such an important aspect of our health, this type of treatment can be effective in treating disorders including chronic fatigue syndrome, bronchitis, sinusitis, laryngitis, arthritis, acne, eczema, chronic pain, muscle spasms, constipation, and edema.
The lymphatic system is a very important but little understood body system, and is responsible for the optimum functioning of fluid (lymph) circulation and the immune system.
Lymphatic Drainage is a specialised technique used to drain fluid from tissues, activate and cleanse the lymphatic system, and is a wonderfully relaxing way to rejuvenate and establish resistance to stress and disease. This is a very light pressure massage.
Lymphatic Drainage is recommended for:
* Acute inflammatory conditions such as bruising, bursitis, sprains and strains. * Chronic inflammatory conditions such as sinusitis, arthritis and acne. * Circulatory problems such as swollen hands and feet. * Common issues such as headaches, migraines, stress and tension, nervous conditions, mental congestion, traveller's edema. * Post-operative situations where lymph nodes have been removed.
