Benefits of a Lymphatic Drainage Massage
There is hardly anything surprising about the deep tissue, hot stone, or sports massage, and how well they help the mind and body. What people do not know much about is the manual lymphatic drainage massage. This style of a massage is there to help the lymphatic system perform its duty of removing bodily toxins and waste much better. It tends to improve the health of your immune system. There is a need to know more about the lymphatic system and see how this massage applies.
The lymphatic system is a complex drainage network that helps the body maintain a balance of the fluids in it. It also helps it fight off infections. It is made of lymph vessels that carry lymph, a clear watery fluid filled with nutrients, throughout the body. When the lymph fluid passes through the lymph nodes, the nodes will filter out unwanted substances from the body such as bacteria, viruses, damaged cells, and even cancer cells. Leaving these harmful substances in the body in a large number shall cause more production of the white blood cells. You will see the nodes swollen.
The lymph nodes do not have an independent pumping mechanism to get the fluids flowing. They wait for your movements and breathing for the liquid to move and thus get filtered. Therefore, eating too much-processed foods and not getting enough exercise or movement shall overwhelm the lymphatic system. This is why it shall be easy for you to get sick. A massage to stimulate the lymph nodes shall help it perform its duties more efficiently.
The lymphatic drainage massage involves the application of specialized hand techniques by a qualified masseuse in which gentle and rhythmic movements shall be used. The strokes shall move the skin in the direction of the lymphatic flow to help drainage of fluid and waste. They shall focus on where your major complaints are. But normally, they tend to focus on the upper body, around the face, neck, and arms. This helps those who may have had cosmetic facial surgery to recover better.
You will get even more benefits from such a massage. It can be used to detox, for example. This is also highly effective when you have been sluggish for a long time. It is normally brought about by too many starchy, high fat foods and too little exercise. You will also need this for your headache. A headache tends to come with congestion, where this massage shall prove beneficial. When decongestion in the tissue occurs, blood will flow better as will the blocked fluids, which helps get rid of the pain.
