Unleash your toxins!
Our massage therapists are trained in lymphatic drainage which stimulates the lymph system with extremely light, circular movements.
How is the Drainage done and what is Lymphatic drainage?
Lymph drainage massage (also called lymphatic drainage and lymph massage) is a form of very light massage that encourages lymph flow in the body. Therapists apply a manual hand circular movements to pump or glide techniques that have a very soothing and relaxing effect. It is particularly good for detoxification, after chemotherapy/radiation, reducing inflammation & swelling, blue bruising, fluid retention, or oedema, pre- and post-plastic surgery and post-liposuction. It can also help with cellulite treatments, scar tissue, spider veins, redness and acne. Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids to increase the body’s immune system.
Where on my Body is my Lymphatic System?
The lymphatic system is located directly beneath the skin. It can be used as part of a facial, or as a whole body treatment. When our lymphatic system is stimulated by massage, toxins are eliminated so our body works more efficiently, the immune system is boosted, and cells are supplied more readily with nutrients.
Our Lymph system needs help
The lymph system is a slow-moving, system of vessels and lymph nodes that is supplementary to the body’s system of blood circulation. The lymph system both delivers nutrients to the cells and carries away excess water, cellular waste, bacteria, viruses and toxins
Let’s looks what happens
- The main functions of the Lymphatic Drainage is it produces lymphocytes which prevents disease in the body.
- It is able to help maintain fluid balance by collecting and returning interstitial fluid to the blood./li>
- It absorbs lipids from the intestines and transports them to the blood.
- The key to a healthy lymph system and drainage is keeping the liver in tip-top shape.
- There is a big connection between a healthy liver and a properly functioning lymph system.
- That is because 25-50% of lymph that flows through the thoracic duct is produced by the liver.
- The thoracic duct is the main duct (from your neck all the way down your abdomen) in your body for the lymph system. It transports most of the lymph to the bloodstream.
- The lymph in the thoracic duct carries nutrients from the intestines into the blood stream and draws lymph from both halves of the body.
- If that much lymph comes from your liver and flows into the main “vessel” of the lymph system then it makes sense why a healthy liver=healthy lymph.
