What is a Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
It is a type of massage that is a gentle massage, using long rhythmic strokes that gets the lymph fluid moving and directs the toxins into the organs that can properly remove them. This will move the stagnant fluid back into the natural lymph flow of the body tissues.
Here are some signs that lymphatic fluid is not moving effectively, and toxins are building up:
Bloating, swelling, brain fog, digestive issues, parasites, depression, sinus infections, skin problems/dry or itchy, enlarge lymph nodes, fatigue, insomnia, stress and digestive problems.
How can Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage help after Cosmetic Surgery?
Manual Drainage Massage is frequently recommended by plastic surgeons during the recovery phase following cosmetic liposuction. It assists with decreased recovery time, reduces post-surgical swelling and fibrosis (scar tissue formation). I recommend one treatment before surgery. After surgery, 4-6 sessions are needed based on the type of surgery you had, number of areas treated and how the body is recovering. Every client is different. Please consult with your doctor first.
Why is it important to drain lymph nodes:
The lymphatic system is an important part of your immune system that help carry white blood cells which assist in preventing infections. Through hundreds of lymph nodes, it drains fluid called lymph to be transported back into your blood stream removing waste.
Duration of a lymphatic drainage massage:
Lymphatic Massage sessions range from 30-90 minutes depending on the condition being treated. I recommend a 60 minute session for your first initial treatment to stimulate you lymphatic flow.
