Your lymphatic system helps eliminate your body’s waste. As such, a good lymphatic drainage is key to a strong immune system. It helps your body to fight off infections and speed up healing. There are various factors that can make the lymphatic system become sluggish, and that’s where a lymphatic drainage massage comes in the picture.
But before getting into the benefits of the lymphatic drainage massage, let’s first understand the science behind it.
What is the lymphatic system?
Made up of a network of organs and tissue that help the body get rid of unwanted materials like toxins and wastes, the lymphatic system transports lymph through the body. Lymph is a clear fluid that contains infection-fighting white cells. Unlike the circulatory system, the lymphatic system does not have a pump. So, the lymph fluid is pushed around the body through the pressure from your blood vessels and movement from your muscles. The main lymph nodes are typically found in the neck, armpits and groin.
Why would you want a lymphatic drainage massage?
Lymphatic drainage is a gentle yet effective therapeutic massage. Since the lymphatic system is dependent on movement, it stops performing properly if that movement begins to slow down, and can lead to many health concerns. The massage primarily reduces swelling and improves blood circulation through the entire system. It uses light pressure and long, rhythmic strokes to release toxins from the body and encourage lymph flow.
When you think about massage, benefits such as relaxation and muscle relief may come to mind. But a lymphatic drainage massage goes beyond these to provide deeper health benefits. This has become evident with its soaring popularity in the medicinal practice.
The absence of a pump in the lymph system can stop your lymph from flowing freely in the body if you sit around for long durations at a time, which can result your fingers or feet to swell. Lymphatic drainage massage helps to reduce this water retention. It is also useful when recovering from an injury, as it reduces inflammation and speeds up the healing in scar tissue.
Lymphatic drainage massage helps to reduce visible puffiness and can be beneficial for those feeling sluggish after long flights or because of sedentary jobs. Additionally, the increase in blood flow from the massage can help erase the appearance of cellulite by flushing out toxins that cause dimply skin.
