The Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Many clients have found that lymphatic drainage massages have reduced their exhaustion, decreased their nausea, mobilized scar tissue, as well as improve their sleep and sense of self. When your body doesn’t ache or hurt and your lymphatic system is working properly, you’ll feel better overall too! Whether you’re still feeling swollen and uncomfortable post-surgery or are struggling to recover from an orthopedic injury, a lymphatic drainage massage may be a great choice for you.
Lymphatic massages began in the 1930s as a treatment for lymphedema, a condition known for swelling and buildup of lymph in the body’s tissues, often a result of surgery, cancer treatment, or an infection. Lymphatic drainage massages are designed to help increase lymphatic drainage in the body. Lymphatic massages utilize gentle circular movements to help stimulate the flow of lymph in the body. Because the lymph system is a central part of the immune system, lymphatic drainage massages have been known to aid in a variety of health issues as well.
The Benefits For Cancer Patients
Studies have shown that massage therapy is not only relaxing and soothing, but can also help combat the negative physical and emotional aspects that many cancer patients struggle with.
Not only does cancer take a toll on your body and physical health, but also on your mood and mental health.
