Lymph Drainage is a very relaxing light pressure hands on technique that increases fluid transport throughout the body. A healthy lymphatic system is vital to good health. Lymph drainage reduces swelling in the extremities, filters toxins, maintains a healthy immune system and activates venous circulation.
When the lymph system is not functioning optimally stagnation within the interstitial space (the space between the cells) occurs putting pressure on the surrounding tissues. This can manifest as muscular pain, swelling and reduced organ function.
Surgery, stress, trauma, burns, infections, dehydration, sustained swelling and fatigue can hinder the normal function of the lymph system. With gentle hands on techniques, enhanced lymph drainage can be obtained.
Lymphatic Drainage can benefit:
- Sleep quality
- Swelling and edema
- Immune function
- RSD or Chronic Regional Pain Syndrome(CRPS)
- Chronic or sub-acute Inflammation such as Acne, Eczema, and Allergies
- Muscle and joint pain
