LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE SARASOTA
Our lymph system is a meshwork that weaves its way through our bodies. The lymph vessels start very small in what are called the initial lymphatic. Over 70% of the initial lymphatics are in and just under the skin. The initial lymphatic is a very delicate structure, one cell thick. Those cells are supported within the connective tissue by collagen and elastin fibers that help to anchor them in place. When the pressure within the interstitial space increases due to a buildup of fluid, or when the skin is slightly stretched, the filaments deform the wall of the initial lymphatic, opening it up. Then the interstitial fluid flows in and starts to move along the channel.
Symptoms Your Lymphatic System Needs Help
- Minor aches and pains
- Low energy
- Susceptibility to colds and flu
- Compromised immune system.
Proper lymphatic drainage massage stimulates the opening of the initial lymphatic and increase the volume of lymph flow by as much as 20 times. Lymphatic Drainage Massage effectiveness lies in its ability to activate the stretch response, which significantly increases the pulsation rate of the lymphangions, increasing lymph flow through the vessels.
Lymphatic massage, also known as lymphatic drainage or manual lymph drainage, is a technique for treatment of lymphedema, an accumulation of fluid that can affect as many as four limbs and/or other parts of the body. Lymphatic drainage massage has a long list of benefits. Apart from being blissfully relaxing, manual lymph drainage decreases facial puffiness, boosts the immune system, smoothes cellulite and soothes sore muscles. Many people who have had a lymphatic drainage massage, never go back to a regular massage again!
