Manual Lymphatic Drainage


Looking for a Lymphatic Massage in Hampshire?


The Lymphatic system plays an extremely important role in the body, in fact without it we would swell up like balloons and would be dead within 24 hours! It is essentially the body’s waste disposal system and is made up of a colourless fluid, lymph, which flows through the tissues of the body collecting toxins until it reaches the lymph nodes which filter and dispose of the harmful substances.

 

The lymph does not have a pump, like the heart, so it relies on muscle movement and gravity to stimulate its flow and if left congested can cause oedema (swelling or water retention). A poor lymph flow can also result in obesity, swollen glands, achy muscles or tiredness.

 

Lymphatic Drainage Massage aids the detoxification process and can increase the volume of lymph flow by up to twenty times. The skin is slightly stretched with gentle massage and then lightly and rhythmically stroked directing the lymph flow toward the nearest lymph node.

 

There are many instances when Lymphatic Drainage Massage would be appropriate, although it can be beneficial to general health and well being by purifying the body, removing any toxins that may cause future problems and enhancing the immune system.


Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage:

  • Reduces swelling by dispersing the build up
  • Stimulates the immune system by increasing the production of antibodies
  • Enhances natural immunity and decreases sensitivity to allergies
  • Enhances the health and beauty of the skin
  • Deeply relaxing and soothing
  • Reduces scar tissue, burns, stretch marks and wrinkles
  • Disperses Cellulite by draining away toxins
  • Can treat colds, flu, sinusitis, ear and eye problems by increased immunity
  • Reduces Chronic muscular pain by stimulating the autonomic nervous system
  • Improves constipation, insomnia, lethargy and chronic fatigue syndrome
