Let’s Talk About Lymph!

An Introduction to Lymph Drainage Massage

Hello, my name is Marie, an experienced massage therapist at YOU Massage, and I would like to talk about your lymphatic system. A fascinating structure that rarely gets the recognition it deserves!

We stimulate the Lymph System’s efficiency with Lymphatic Drainage Massage, available as 45, 75 and 90 minute treatments, we suggest booking in for longer as the rhythm of the massage is slow and depends on your system and how sluggish it may be feeling; it can be slowed down sue to additional pressure on the immune system; a few massages may be recommended to bring you back to optimum health and immune system efficiency.

What is your lymphatic system?

Your lymphatic system is an important part of your immune system and your body’s waste disposal system. Similar to your cardiovascular system, the lymphatic system is made up of a network of vessels that carry lymphatic fluid through your lymphatic nodes.

The purpose of the lymph vessels is to carry any infections or damaged cells that enter your lymphatic system from your bloodstream and pass them through our lymphatic nodes.

the lymphatic system

The lymph nodes then filter and break down these infections before passing them to the thoracic duct, situated in the chest area.

This empties the fluid back into the blood stream where any remaining waste will be processed by your kidneys and liver and the body can pass it as waste product (Urine, faces or sweat)

What is lymphatic fluid?

Lymphatic fluid contains lymphocytes which fights infections and chyle which breaks down fatty substances in the intestines.

 

Why do YOU need Lymph Drainage Massage?

Lymph Drainage Massage at our Southampton clinic improves the function f your lymphatic system.

Your lymphatic system’s function can be affected by any of the following;

  • lack of mobility or exercise
  • Increased in consumption of toxins
  • Infections or an increase in damaged cells
  • Lymphatic conditions such as Lymphedema
  • Recent surgery
  • Having smaller than average lymphatic nodes

All the above can result in swelling (particularly in legs and arms), bloating, a sluggish immune system resulting in illness or generally feeling tired and ‘heavy’.

When lymphatic nodes are taking longer to break down infections, they can become swollen and painful to touch.

 

How can Lymphatic drainage help you and what to expect?

Lymphatic drainage Massage involves several gentle techniques that open the lymphatic nodes with a gentle pumping motion and encouraging the fluid through them and up towards the lymphatic ducts so that your lymphatic system can work better.

The Southampton Lymph Drainage Massage we offer can reduce any swelling and water retention and help boost your immunity for the coming winter.

If you are looking to have post-surgery lymphatic drainage it can reduce your swelling, pain and aid the healing process. Though some clients can feel the benefit from this amazing treatment instantly, I recommend a course to get the most out of your experience.
