Manual lymph drainage is a gentle and effective form of massage that has been refined since its inception nearly a century ago. Apple Valley Massage therapists use specific hands-on techniques that encourage lymph flow from swollen areas and restore proper functioning.
Benefits of Lymphatic Massage
Techniques stimulate the immune and nervous systems as the lymph is moved through the lymph vessels and lymph nodes. Benefits include:
- Reduction of swelling
- Detoxification of the body
- Anti-aging effects
- Promotes tissue regeneration for burns, injuries and wrinkles
- Relieves chronic pain
- Reduce symptoms of fibromyalgia
- Induces deep relaxation to help with insomnia, stress, chronic fatigue and memory loss
How Does Lymph Move Through The Body?
The lymphatic system is very important to the proper functioning of the immune system. Lymph moves through the body via muscle groups found within the larger lymph vessels. Lymph can be stimulated to flow smoothly with deep abdominal breathing, regular exercise, controlled muscle contraction and applied external compression when performed by a certified lymph drainage specialist.
