lymphatic Drainage Massage
What is the purpose of a lymphatic drainage massage?
Lymphatic drainage massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage, reduces swelling caused by medical treatment or sickness that obstructs the lymphatic system. Lymphatic drainage massage is gently manipulating specific areas of your body to assist lymph in moving to an area with functioning lymph vessels.
Benefits of Massage Therapy
Benefits of regular Massage Therapy
One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because massage prompts the release of endorphins – the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing.
Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
Some of the physical benefits of massage therapy include:
Lower stress. The long-term effects of stress can take emotional and physical tolls.
Increase immune function.
Boost mental health and wellness.
Improve physical fitness.
Reduced muscle tension
Stimulation of the lymphatic system
