ABOUT

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Lymphatic drainage is a therapeutic massage treatment that uses light, gentle pressure and rhythmic strokes to increase the lymph flow around the body. This treatment helps to flush out retained liquids and toxins, aiding general well-being. Lymphatic drainage helps the lymphatic system to do its job better.

BENEFITS

HOW IT WORKS

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

The lymphatic system is part of the immune system, and is very close to the skin’s surface. Composed of veins and lymph nodes strategically located, the lymphatic system is responsible for collecting and draining metabolic waste, toxins and excess water.

By stimulating the lymph nodes and pushing the lymph towards the heart, this waste will go back inside the bloodstream to be filtered by the kidneys and flushed out through urine.

When the lymphatic system works well, we feel healthy and have a strong defence against illness. When it’s sluggish or blocked, such as after surgery or an injury, we can have swelling, feel tired, and be more susceptible to colds and infections.

SUITABLE FOR

Pregnant women retain 8 litres more than the average volume of water found in our bodies, and the hormone progesterone is responsible for this situation. Imagine all this extra volume, plus the weight of the baby, plus the placenta and the amniotic fluid – not forgetting those extra pounds that are normal to gain during pregnancy.

All these changes cause a sensation of heaviness, swelling and discomfort, and an excellent way to relieve this disagreeable sensation is lymphatic drainage. It’s suitable after 12 weeks with your doctor and midwife’s approvals.

Lymphatic drainage postpartum provides emotional well-being and relaxation, as it relieves tension during this new phase of a woman’s life. It can also increase her self-esteem, stimulate and improve blood circulation, provide a better night’s sleep, improve breastfeeding, reduce stress hormones, reduce fluid retention and swelling, eliminate accumulated toxins and waste in the body, speed healing, therefore helping new moms recover quickly from childbirth, including scar tissue.

Postpartum can be a beautiful phase, but that requires that you are well looked after to enjoy your newest love.

Lymphedema is swelling in one or more extremities that results from impaired flow of the lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage encourages the flow of lymph fluid out of an arm or leg, and is a way of reducing swelling caused by fluid build-up after cancer treatments.

Getting post-surgery lymphatic drainage is essential to obtain the desired results of the operation. This therapy is required after a liposculpture, tummy tuck, breast reduction/augmentation as well as liposuction in any other part of the body. The purpose of this lymphatic drainage therapy is to eliminate liquid that tends to accumulate and harden, forming fibrosis. Fibrosis is the name given to those little balls and lumps that you feel forming under your skin about one to two weeks after a surgical procedure. This therapy also allows for better circulation of the blood, and works with the texture of your skin to ensure a better healing process.

Lymphatic drainage is a therapeutic procedure designed specifically to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

Any person that submits themselves to a cosmetic surgical procedure will experience exceptional levels of inflammation as a side-effect of the work performed in that area. The process of lymphatic drainage allows your body to release the liquid accumulated under the skin and in turn, your healing time and pain both decrease.

Regular lymphatic drainage sessions can prevent colds and flu, as they strengthen the immune system.

These cramps are caused by the release of hormones during the menstrual period, which causes contractions in the womb and makes women feel pain and the uncomfortable feeling of swelling.

In this sense, lymphatic drainage works by eliminating excess body fluids, minimising swelling, improving menstrual flow and relaxing the muscles of the tummy (abdomen). The ideal situation is to perform the sessions both before and after the menstrual period, because it’s at those moments that fluids and toxins accumulate more quickly in the body because of the action of hormones.

If you suffer from constipation, for example, lymphatic drainage can help you too.

The manoeuvres of lymphatic drainage mimic intestinal movements (peristalsis), and the position of the lymphatic vessels located in the muscular walls of the intestine favours the lymphatic flow to be stimulated by peristalsis.

It’s as I always say, it’s a therapy that will help improve your body as a whole.

Lymphatic drainage has been suggested to help improve mood. An analysis carried out in 2004 of 37 studies found evidence of the benefits of lymphatic drainage in reducing anxiety and depression.

At the end of the session, the body will use all its energy to eliminate any excess toxins that have been inserted into the circulatory system due to the increase in lymphatic flow. Lymphatic drainage can be especially relaxing because it can reduce levels of body pain.

Signs and indicators of toxicity are low energy (tiredness), need and appetite for sugars, dependence on stimulants such as cigarettes or coffee, mood swings, depression, poor memory, weight gain, skin problems, headaches, joint pain, and muscle pain, among others.

When you start a lymphatic drainage treatment, the immune system is strengthened, and with that you have more vitality and energy, thereby enhancing your body, increasing your defences to diseases in the future.

Lymphatic drainage stimulates the contraction of lymphatic vessels, increases the speed of lymph transport and provides cellular nutrition through the increased blood supply. It’s a complete therapy which detoxifies your body.

Nobody likes a long flight. They’re stuffy, boring and they generally make your body feel pretty terrible while it tries to acclimatise to your new time zone. There’s no doubt that they also cause suffering from swelling, dehydration and general tiredness. Postflight lymphatic drainage will help you drastically minimise your jet lag: jet lag here is code for sickness, dehydration, fatigue and irritability, all those uncomfortable things. Lymphatic drainage is one of the best things you can do to combat these nasties, as it helps to rid your body of all its discomforts, making it easier to adjust to your new time zone. At Skin Body Rescue Clinic, we use pure oil during the treatment to promote a sense of wellbeing and invigoration. Lymphatic drainage will help with fluid retention as it is such a great way to flush toxins out of your body. After hours in the air, fluids can build up in the body, possibly causing you pain and discomfort.

It will also help to rehydrate you after flying. During the flight, only drinking small amounts of liquids holds people back from staying hydrated and this, paired with the weak air systems, make dehydration a significant concern. Lymphatic drainage will not only help to increase your blood flow, but the oil that we use will help to add moisture back into your skin.
Before your flight, lymphatic drainage also is recommended because the circulation will be better prepared to face the pressurisation of the cabin.
