Lymphatic drainage massage Adelaide
Often referred to as the body’s plumbing system, lymphatic drainage is commonly called a lymphatic massage and is used to reduce swelling on any part of the body and stimulate the lymphatic system.
Consisting of light and slow repeated movements, gently stretching the skin in a circular movement, this massage is done on bare skin and but may feel different from other massages because there are no oils used.
Lymphatic massage helps to decrease puffiness in the face, smooth out cellulite, reduce the toxins in your body and can help reduce swelling across any part of the body.
What are the benefits of Lymphatic Drainage massage?
Lymphatic drainage massage helps to decrease toxins in the body and maintain proper blood circulation, fluid balance in the body and benefit your immune functions. While the heart continuously pumps blood through the blood vessels, the lymphatic system relies on the movement of smooth muscles to transport fluid through the lymph vessels.
Health conditions can interrupt the normal flow of lymph, causing lymph fluid to build up in a particular area of the body, often in the arms or legs, where it can cause swelling.
Lymphatic massage can benefit you if you’re experiencing:
- Skin disorders
- Digestive problems
- Migraine episodes
“Remember to move your lymph system. The lymph is like a sewage system carrying all the toxins out of your body”
