Lymphatic Drainage Massage

The Lymphatic system is our front line of defence in fighting infections, detoxifying the body and transporting metabolic wastes, excess water,Lymphatic drainage bacteria and toxins out of the body. The Lymph glands (at neck, armpits, groin, etc.) are connected by a broad network of vessels which transplant the fluid. Muscular movement is required to move it, as there is no "Heart" to pump it. Lymphatic drainage massage aids the movement of lymph and is particularly useful when the body is overloaded with toxins. It is also highly recommended for those prone to and recovering from sore throats, colds, infections, on-going tiredness, excess fluid, low immunity, swollen glands and also for the physically inactive. Lymphatic drainage is indicated after the removal of lymph glands (such as in breast cancer) as the lymphatic system often needs help to treat and prevent the build up of fluid. The massage usually includes the whole body and is at times gentle but deeper massage may be required in areas where lymph flow is blocked by muscular tension. There is a feeling of wellbeing immediately after the massage as the nervous system has relaxed and the toxins begin to move out of the body.
