The Lymphatic system is the unsung hero that helps ward off infections and keep our bodies healthy. It forms part of the body’s immune system where the fluid (Lymph) removes toxins, excess fluid, bacteria, and viruses from the body. Give your Lymphatic system a boost and detox with a therapeutic Lymphatic drainage massage. Rather than working the muscle, the Lymphatic drainage massage works the surface of the skin with gentle, long, rhythmic strokes. Unlike blood vessels, the Lymphatic system doesn’t have a pump and instead relies on movement to flush out toxins so it can slow down after a period of decreased activity (i.e the festive season) or when recovering from surgery or infection. A Lymphatic drainage massage is a perfect way to boost your immune system by supporting the Lymphatic system.
Support your immune system.
The Lymphatic system is an essential part of the body’s immune system by removing bacteria, viruses and detoxifying the body. A Lymphatic drainage massage supports the flow of Lymph, boosting your immune system and speeding up recovery from infections.
Water retention is excess fluid stored in the tissue of the body or in the circulatory system. The Lymphatic system helps to flush out excess fluids, reducing puffiness and even helps to increase your body’s metabolic rate.
Post surgical recovery
The benefits of lymphatic massage after cosmetic surgery are multiple. They encourage the the lymphatic system to decrease painful swelling. Thanks to this type of massage, the immune system will be much stronger, and the recovery will be much better and faster.
