What a Lymphatic Drainage Massage Is + Why You Should Try It

With so many massage services available, you may be wondering what the benefit of a lymphatic drainage massage is over the others. This technique is an extremely beneficial way of adding wellness and health to your body! Let’s get to some of the details of what it is.

What is a Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

This massage type assists the lymphatic system in maintaining the body’s fluid balance, blood circulation and immune system. The system has many vessels and nodes, which contain lymph: a mixture of water, proteins and immune system components. Lymph nodes help filter out debris found in the body.

During a lymphatic drainage massage, our massage therapist applies a series of various stretching and compressing motions over the body, which stimulate the lymphatic system. This allows lymph to move more easily through the tissues and lymph nodes.

Why is This Important?

A lymphatic drainage massage has detoxification and esthetic benefits, which is why many people are adding it to their wellness and skincare routines. It helps with pain relief, hormonal imbalances, digestive imbalances, skin conditions, cellulite, and headaches among many other symptoms. It’s also great for general stress relief.

Why Should I Get a Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

You may be wondering if there’s a difference in choosing this massage type over a general massage. While the conventional approach is great for your muscles and joints, adding in the lymphatic drainage massage gives you many more benefits that are a step further. If you would like to cleanse your body during a season change (such as now!), after an illness or just during a stressful period in your life, this is a great way to do so. Since this massage focuses on detoxing and purifying your body, it revamps your energy and gives you a boost to take on life again!
