Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic Drainage is a holistic therapy designed to elevate and support a healthy lymphatic system within the body. This system is a complex network of vessels and ducts that move fluid throughout the body and it is responsible for moving toxins away from healthy cells and carrying germ-fighting materials to cells when they are under attack from viruses. Though fluid moves through the lymphatic system, it does not have its own pumping mechanism. This therapy is intended to help the body produce a free-flowing lymphatic system.

The treatment consists of a precise manual massage that focuses on specific lymph nodes within the body, as well as the natural flow of the lymphatic system. Proponents of lymphatic drainage believe the process reduces blockages and stimulates the lymphatic system which, ultimately, promotes a healthier body.

When the lymphatic system becomes blocked, lymph nodes become congested and the body fails to clear out toxins. This can be identified by swollen legs and, on occasion, completely bloated bodies. Lymphatic drainage therapy diminishes blockages, stimulating the relevant vessels responsible for the release of toxins and waste deposits.

A healthy lymphatic system also benefits other areas of the body such as the circulatory, respiratory, muscular, and endocrine systems. The treatment is ideal for expectant mothers who usually suffer from fluid retention at some time during their pregnancy which can lead to swollen legs and ankles, as well as puffy eyes and enlarged fingers. Post pregnancy, a course of lymphatic drainage therapy can help reduce cellulite and stretch marks. Therapists can also use the treatment to aid allergies, menstrual cramps, arthritis and various skin conditions. The treatment also includes an extra light facial massage, equal to a mini facelift. The client will feel the fluids draining away leaving the face slimmer and more defined.

Lymphatic drainage therapy is about preventative health care and is a safe and relaxing method of improving the body’s general well-being.
