Unlike traditional massage, which deals with our muscles and connective tissues, lymphatic massage addresses the health of the fluid systems in our body.
As a matter of fact, the technical term for this process is manual lymphatic drainage. However we will use the terms massage and drainage interchangeably. Lymphatic massage is a gentle, rhythmical treatment that stimulates the circulation of lymph fluid. This nurtures the health of the lymphatic system and speeds up the removal of wastes and toxins from the body. It is particularly effective if you’re suffering from headaches, fatigue, swelling, stress and anxiety, or just want to boost your health and sleep quality.
Lymphatic massage helps remove toxins, viruses, bacteria, fungi, cell debris, waste, edema, and pathogens away from the tissues and into the lymphatic system where it can be cleansed and or eliminated. By supporting the lymphatic system, the body is better able to deal with everyday insults, including environmental toxins and cellular waste.
