You can never go wrong with an optimally functioning immune system. Strong immunity plays a vital role in protecting us from infections like the novel coronavirus, which are caused by bacteria, viruses and toxins. Studies across the globe have shown Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM) to be a great way to boost the immune system.
The fluid in your lymphatic system helps to eliminate the body’s wastes and toxins. An active and healthy lymphatic system uses the natural movements of the smooth muscles to do this. However, certain medical conditions can disrupt the regular flow of fluids and cause them to build up in the lymph nodes and lymph system. This condition is known as lymphedema. The fluids are often built up in the arms or legs and can cause swelling.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a massage therapy specialized in assisting the lymphatic system to maintain the body’s fluid balance and improve blood circulation. It uses gentle rhythmic pressures over the body to help reduce swelling, pain and heaviness in the limbs. It also follows a series of gliding, stretching, compressing and cupping motions to release any trapped lymph, making sure every area is treated with care.
The benefits of lymphatic drainage massage are myriad — for both health and mind. Women today incorporate this massage into their wellness and skincare routines given its aesthetic and detoxification benefits. It is also widely used following a cosmetic surgery to reduce swelling and flush out the by-products of anaesthesia from the body. There is also a type of lymphatic drainage massage that is devoted to facial rejuvenation.
While this massage is best suited for anyone who has blood clots, digestive problems, hormonal imbalances, circulation problems, or skin conditions such as cellulite or acne, it has also become a popular massage choice among individuals who are simply looking to boost their lymphatic system function.
Those who have been infected by coronavirus before can struggle with persistent fatigue and lack of energy after recovery, as it takes weeks or even months before they can return to their normal health levels. LDM helps to cleanse the body’s tissues, which is important for keeping the body balanced and fighting diseases. It does this by reducing the cortisol levels and increasing the activity of white blood cells.
The global pandemic has also unquestionably taken a toll on the mental health of many, who have succumbed to stress and anxiety. Poor mental health, if not properly managed, can lead to more serious issues like sleep deprivation and chronic health disorders. Lymphatic drainage massage, being a gentle massage treatment, addresses these issues through its therapeutic benefits of increased relaxation, reduced anxiety and stress, and improved sleep quality.
