Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic Drainage

Lymph drainage massage is becoming one of the most popular kinds of massage thanks to its numerous health benefits. Using a specialized approach, this massage targets the lymphatic system, which is connected to the immune system. The goal is to improve blood flow, fluid balance and immune response. With so many benefits to enjoy, you’ll want to visit Motus Integrative Health to revitalize your wellbeing. Schedule a visit with Marzena Tzolov, one of our massage therapists, who specializes in techniques that promote lymphatic drainage. 

What is Lymphatic Drainage?

The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and vessels throughout your body. This system includes lymph nodes, tonsils, bone marrow, the spleen and collection ducts, all of which work to protect you from disease and remove cellular waste by distributing a clear liquid called lymph throughout your tissues and vessels. Unlike the heart, which beats to circulate blood, the lymphatic system relies on muscle movement and contractions of muscle cells to distribute fluid.  

There are some health conditions and lifestyle factors that can compromise the lymphatic system’s efficiency, which can lead to swelling, pain and fatigue. By massaging the lymphatic system, it’s possible to manually help the lymph move through the system and accelerate the removal of accumulated liquid and residues. Lymphatic drainage can be promoted through a number of chiropractic techniques, including: 

  • Chiropractic adjustment, since many lymph nodes and ducts are located near the spine
  • Massage, which targets muscles and soft tissues
  • Advice regarding diet and other lifestyle factors that impact the lymphatic system

A massage generally lasts around 15 to 60 minutes, so it’s easy to book your appointment even if you have a busy lifestyle. There’s virtually no risk involved, since even a gentle massage is adept at promoting lymph distribution. 

The Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage

Lymphatic drainage is highly effective on the removal of stagnant fluids and toxins in the body. Following a specialized massage, you’ll enjoy less pain, swelling and inflammation, making it favorable for those with rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and other conditions. Even if you don’t have a health condition, you’ll still enjoy a range of benefits:

  • Immune Support. Lymphatic drainage helps clear the body of harmful invaders and toxins, which improves the immune system.
  • Reduced Swelling. Many individuals with bloating around their lymph nodes may benefit from a lymphatic drainage massage. The movement of the massage helps to circulate fluids throughout the body, which prevents it from building up.
  • Myofascial Release. The massage releases myofascial pain and restores motion in stiff areas.  
  • Improved Physical Appearance. You can also enjoy an enhanced physical appearance thanks to lymphatic drainage. The process helps reduce the appearance of cellulite, which is often more noticeable when fluids build up within the fibers beneath the skin, as well as getting rid of bloating.
