Lymphatic Massage – Lymphatic Drainage 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! Lymphatic drainage massage helps deliver cellular waste to the lymph nodes. Drainage is essential because the lymphatic system lacks a pump of its own to transport lymph through the body and must rely on movement and massage to flush the fluid. Lymphatic drainage massage is good at reducing swelling, healing acne, relieving fatigue, and helps the body detox. This is a great treatment to try if you’re fasting or trying a juice cleanse. Lymphatic massage is used to: • manually drain the lymph • help in lymphedema • help in lymphatic congestion • help in poor circulation • help with disease & toxicity Contact The Gabriel Center for Massage Therapy at (941) 954-0300 for more information.
