You may have heard about lymphatic drainage massage from different sources but let me introduce it to you as a professional. Lymphatic drainage massage in simple terms is a gentle, rhythmical massage done by a lymphatic massage therapist aimed to stimulate the circulation of lymph fluid in your body.
I know the next question in your mind is why should the circulation of your lymph fluid be stimulated? Well, the answer to this is to improve your general body’s health and wellness. Our profession makes us tend to have an affinity to details and in that same spirit, I will comprehensively take you through the benefits of lymphatic drainage massage.
Improve your immunity:
This massage is known to help you reduce chances of catching cold and viruses since your lymphatic system helps fight off infections and speed up healing and recovery. I would very much recommend you to take up this massage treatment especially during this period where we need our body’s immunity to be at its best to help us fight COVID-19.
Reduce swelling and water retention:
You may have experienced swelling feet or fingers when you travel. This is because unlike the blood circulation system where the heart pumps blood, the lymphatic circulation system has no pump. Hence if you sit for long without moving you may experience swelling in certain areas. People who have conditions such as arthritis often have joints congested with lymph fluid. All these conditions respond well to lymphatic drainage massage.
Alleviate headaches caused by sinusitis.
Sinusitis has an element of congestion which becomes decongested once tissue fluids are able to move freely as a result of lymphatic drainage massage.
Pregnancy and lactation:
Most lactating mothers may experience blocked ducts and sore tight breasts. For pregnant mothers, they may experience swelling in certain parts of their bodies. This massage therapy is the solution to all these problems.
The lymphatic drainage massage is your ticket to beautiful skin. This is because as a result of boosted lymph fluid flow, there will be a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in your facial tissue, a clearer complexion, reduced puffiness around the eyes, reduced appearance of cellulite, fast healing of new scars and reduced appearance of old scars
This treatment boosts your metabolic rate and as a result your body is able to burn calories efficiently.
Relaxation and rejuvenation:
The massage is usually very gentle and tends to relieve stress off your body.
