What happens after lymphatic drainage massage?
Lymphatic drainage massage therapy is a moderate, non-invasive massage therapy that is intended to boost lymphatic circulation and enhance the immune system’s function. All ages and genders are eligible for lymphatic massage therapy; however, people who have recently undergone surgery, have lymphedema, or have other lymphatic disorders, in particular, can benefit from it.
Lymphatic drainage, or LD, massage is a popular therapeutic technique in which a therapist uses pressure to move lymph throughout the body. The name ‘lymphatic’ derives from the Greek word for ‘pool’ because of the belief that all body fluids pass through the lymphatic system. Lymph is a fluid that transports cells, blood and proteins throughout the body. The lymphatic system has a direct connection to the blood system, and when blocked, can cause diseases and inflammation.
Lymph is an important part of our immune system. It’s a network of fluids that helps carry away unwanted substances, such as dead cells, bacteria and toxins. Moving these substances through the lymphatic system ensures our bodies remain healthy and clean. The lymphatic system also circulates plasma, which is rich in protein and carries blood cells throughout the body. When working properly, this system promotes healthy circulation and the elimination of waste from our bodies.
For people with certain health conditions- such as lymphoma and lymphoedema – lack of lymph movement can result in painful swelling and excess accumulation of fluid in the tissue layers of the body. A lymphatic drainage massage encourages the body to heal itself by promoting blood circulation and regulating bodily pressure. Regular LD massages help with recovery after surgery or other medical treatments for swollen areas in the body. In addition, LD massages promote overall wellness and well-being by encouraging proper hydration, nutrition and elimination of toxins from the body.
The idea of a massage technique that focuses on moving lymph throughout the body is not new; practitioners have been using this technique for centuries in Greece, Egypt, China and other Asian cultures. Leonardo Da Vinci illustrated how he intended Leonardo Da Vinci’s innovative ‘X’-shaped crisscrossing strokes to move lymph throughout the body during his painting sessions. The name ‘lymphatic drainage’ derives from the Greek word for ‘pool,’ because of the belief that all body fluids pass through the lymphatic system. In fact, one definition for ‘lymphatic’ is ‘containing a liquid.
By releasing tension through a massage, we can improve our physical and mental well-being simultaneously. This massage technique can also boost our immune systems by increasing circulation throughout the body- particularly in problem areas such as our necks or backs.
Lymphedema may benefit people with lymph buildup, thanks to trusted sources:
– Cancer and Cancer Treatment Involving the Removal of Lymph Nodes
– Filariasis, which is a lymph node infection caused by a mosquito-borne parasite
– Certain types of vascular surgery, such as B, vein stripping
– Burn Scar Excision
– Liposuction, a surgery to remove fat from the body
– Lymphatic system infection or trauma
– Fluid accumulation from deep vein thrombosis
– A medical condition that affects blood flow to extremities, such as hands and feet
– Lymphatic congestion affects about 20 percent of women treated for breast cancer.
A doctor may recommend lymphatic massage as part of an individual treatment plan. If someone thinks they have lymphedema, they should ask their doctor about this option. You should not use a lymphatic massage without first consulting your doctor.
The main techniques used during a lymphatic drainage massage are kneading, friction and movement- along with certain tools such as towels or sponges used to apply pressure to certain parts of the body. If a client has cold or clammy skin, ice applied to these areas encourages greater circulation; alternatively, warm compresses stimulate blood flow more efficiently than cold ones do. The therapist will also use aromatherapy or positive thinking to promote deeper relaxation during his session.
A lymphatic drainage massage encourages us to keep our bodies healthy by encouraging proper waste removal and increased blood circulation throughout our bodies. It also promotes relaxation by focusing on specific problem areas and promoting mental well-being through positive thinking or meditation by application of stress-relieving mechanisms such as hydrotherapy or cold applications on problem areas such as shoulders, neck or back areas.
When you stand up from the massage table, you will feel noticeable relief, especially if you have swelling in your arms or legs. You will find that you feel 50% better and then 90% better after the massage. You may also feel incredibly rejuvenated, even days after your session is over.
