Our body relies on the natural function of the lymphatic system to remove wastes and fight viruses that can potentially lead to diseases such as cancer. Hence, it is essential to support the drainage and filtering function of the lymphatic system. Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM) is a great way to detox the body on a cellular level.
But before getting into the benefits of LDM, let us understand how the lymphatic system actually works.
The lymphatic system is a network of organs, vessels and nodes that contain lymph, a mixture of water, proteins, wastes, and immune system elements. Placed throughout the body, lymph nodes filter toxins and foreign materials, ensuring that clean lymph is transported back to the veins that carry blood to the heart. The largest nodes are found in the neck, armpits and groin.
The lymphatic drainage massage focuses on our lymph nodes and the surrounding network. It is a deep tissue massage that targets the deeper-lying connective tissues and the muscles that support them. It works to improve circulation by targeting areas where fluid builds up, creating pockets or lumps in the muscles.
Lymphatic drainage massage has become popular owing to its health benefits. Traditionally, this therapy has been used to treat various medical conditions. One such condition is lymphedema, which is caused by chronic swelling that can occur after lymph node removal. It is also used to treat many other concerns, such as bloating, water retention and chronic fatigue. LDM plays a huge role in supporting gut health, improving digestion and relieving swelling.
Nowadays, lymphatic drainage has also become an important part of the beauty regimen for many. It works as an effective means to combat puffy, dull complexion and skin irritation. Moreover, a recent study has also discovered a close connection between the lymphatic system and hair regrowth.
New research has revealed that hair follicle stem cells are closely associated with lymphatic capillaries.
Our lymphatic stem cells are grouped in clusters called niches, which are all connected by the lymphatic system. An interlinked network of lymphatic capillaries surrounds each niche, connecting all of the stem cell niches. The hair-follicle stem cells act as an on-off switch for drainage, controlling what fluid and cells are in the surrounding area, and ultimately, activating regeneration across more tissue.
In other words, the drainage ability of the lymphatic network can promote tissue regeneration, potentially providing therapies for conditions such as hair loss. Using lymphatic drainage massage, hair growth can be encouraged across areas of the scalp that need it most, like thinning or bald spots.
