ABOUT LYMPHATIC MASSAGE
Lymph Drainage Massage is an advanced form of massage that aims to stimulate the lymphatic system to remove congestion and stagnation from within the body, and so help it return to a healthy condition. LDM utilizes gentle massage strokes that remove blockages and promotes proper lymph flow. This is important because it is the primary function of the lymph system to defend the body against disease by cleansing, detoxifying and nourishing the body’s tissues. Thus, when the lymph system is blocked, toxins and plasma may accumulate causing interference with cell nourishment and depressing the immune system.
Lymph Drainage Massage is extremely beneficial as a pre/post-surgery treatment as it can dramatically decrease recovery time. It is the best natural way to eliminate swelling in any area of the body including many cosmetology aspects, edema, swelling from dental work, and organ draining (detox). This is also one of the best modalities to help athletes perform better in competitions as well as reducing recovery time by up to 50%.
Other conditions that respond well to LDM are a weakened immune system, chronic congestion (sinus etc), rheumatoid arthritis, the healing of wounds, burns and scars. LDM is also often incorporated into the treatment and control of Lymphoedema.
