What is a lymphatic drainage massage?A lymphatic drainage massage is designed to increase flow through your lymphatic system to naturally neutralize toxins in your body. Your massage therapist will use gentle pressure to redirect fluids towards your lymph nodes. Through lymphatic drainage massage, your massage therapist can target trouble areas in the body where you may be experiencing symptoms of lymphatic dysfunction such as swelling and fluid retention.
How do I know if a lymphatic drainage massage is right for me?Lymphatic dysfunction, as referred to as lymphedema, is a disorder that reduces or blocks the filtration of toxins leading to uncomfortable swelling. Lymphedema can occur naturally as a hereditary condition. Additionally, it could arise after surgery or radiation that causes damage to lymph nodes as seen in breast cancer treatment. As a result of its powerful ability to encourage quicker healing, a lymphatic drainage massage is often prescribed as a post-surgical therapy plan. Likewise, this treatment can also promote healing if you’ve experienced a sprain, joint injury or sinus inflammation.
