ABOUT LYMPHATIC MASSAGE
Usually, when people hear about Lymphatic Massage they think it’s only for individuals who have lymphedema. Lymphatic Massage has recently become a technique of choice among a variety of massage lovers due to many benefits. For example, it can benefit people who are experiencing the following: lymphedema, fibromyalgia, swelling or edema, skin disorders, fatigue, insomnia, stress, digestive problems etc.
You should not have the lymphatic massage if you have congestive heart failure, blood clots, kidney problems, infections, or circulation problems. If you have any medical conditions, you should talk to a doctor before trying a lymphatic massage. During the Lymphatic Massage, the massage therapist uses a series of a very light touch massage that encourages the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products from the body back to the heart. The light rhythmic movements stimulate the lymphatic system without compressing the vessels – allowing lymph to move easily through the tissues and lymph nodes.
Of course, traditional massage like a Swedish or deep tissue massage is a supreme experience for your muscles, joints, nervous system, and attitude. Deciding to receive a lymphatic massage goes a step further. Lymphatic Massage focuses on detox and purification revitalizes your energy, leaving you feeling ready to face anything.
