Fitness Fix:  "Massage therapy, especially lymphatic and even deeper massage, is very useful in supporting our detox program. It stimulates elimination and body functions and promotes relaxation. Clearing tensions, worries, and other mental messes also makes for a more complete detoxification. Resting, relaxation, and recharging are important to this rejuvenation process. During detox, we may need more rest, quiet time, and sleep, although more commonly we have more energy and function better on less sleep."  - Elson M. Haas, M.D., Staying Healthy with Nutrition: The Complete Guide to Diet and Nutritional Medicine

More About Lymphatic Massage

Lymphatic massage  is a technique used to help increase lymph flow. Increased lymph flow clears harmful substances from the tissues and increases immune function.

Increasingly, people look to lymphatic massage to reduce the effects of stress, relieve the effects of swelling, aid recovery from surgery, and boost skin care regimens.  Lymphatic massage can be useful in cases of edema, sports injury, and with people experiencing a sluggish immune system and those suffering from a lack of energy.  Many find this gentle, yet powerful technique is
a key to improved health and well-being.

What is the Lymphatic System?
The lymphatic system plays a crucial role in your body’s ability heal from injury and ward off disease. It is essential to the body's drainage system for cleansing and filtering out toxins and bacteria.

Challenges for the Lymphatic System
Aches, pains, soreness and flu like symptoms could all be caused by congested lymph pathways.

Benefits of Lymphatic Massage
Lymphatic massage can help to unblock the lymph system by manually
stimulating the lymph system in a clockwise fashion.

Performing lymphatic massage correctly can
encourage the opening of the initial lymphatic and increase the volume of lymph flow by as much as 20 times.

Because lymph cleanses nearly every cell in your body
, the negative effects of chronic lymph blockages include but are not limited to:

• Frequent cold and flu infections

• Joint pain

• Headache and migraine

• Menstrual cramps

• Arthritis

• Loss of appetite

• Fatigue

• Mood irregularities

• Depression

• Acne

• Sluggish digestive system

What is Lymphatic Massage?

The use of massage as a healing therapy dates back centuries. Lymphatic massage was developed in the 1930s and is a delicate form of massage that stimulates the body’s lymphatic system.

The lymphatic system has no central pump and depends on muscle contraction through deep breathing, exercise and manual manipulation to move fluid.

Lymphatic massage utilizes a very light pressure combined with soft pumping movements in the direction of the lymph nodes. Immune system function can be significantly increased
and metabolism improved.

A strong immune system makes you feel balanced, happy and whole.

As with most massage, it is vital to drink
water after a lymphatic massage to keep the body hydrated.

Lymphatic Massage – What can it be used for?

• Boost the immune system, especially for people susceptible to contagious diseases and viral infections

• Has calming effect on the nervous system relieving stress and tension

• Assist weight reduction 

• Positive effect on the digestive process

• Lymphatic massage has been used for years to enhance the quality of the skin by rejuvenating collagen fibers and slowing the effects of the aging process

• Lymphatic massage aids the increase of lymph flow. When the lymph is flowing as it should, cells are bathed in fresh fluid making the skin look fresh and alive.

Lymphatic massage is useful for people with sports injuries.

• When applied after neuromuscular massage, lymphatic massage
encourages the tissue
to clear debris and reduce the minor edema that can occur after deep tissue massage.

• Repeated lymphatic massage while healing from a sports injury can help to enhance the tissue regeneration process by keeping the tissue as healthy as possible.

It is thought that lymphatic massage can also help the scarring process by enhancing circulation and immunity.

• Increased lymph flow around the scar stimulates damaged lymph vessels to heal.

• Increased lymph flow
improves the health of the tissues.

A common use of lymph massage is with breast cancer.  Women who have had axillary lymph nodes removed sometimes develop edema in their arm. As long as there is only minor swelling, a massage therapist with a good knowledge of cautions/contraindications and specific training in lymphatic drainage massage techniques can do a great amount of good.

Lymphatic Massage – Is it Safe?

For the most part lymphatic massage is safe. However as with all massage therapies there are some contra indications. For lymphatic massage specifically, these include acute inflammation, malignant tumors, thrombosis and major heart problems.

To get the best results from a lymphatic massage, seek out a suitably trained and qualified therapist.
