Especially important during the cold and flu season, pay attention to your body. If you’re feeling tired and run-down, a lymph massage can charge your batteries and prep the immune system for the road ahead.
What is Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
This is a gentle, relaxing form of massage that helps the body’s lymphatic system get moving again while reinforcing the immune function.
Lymph Massage is extremely gentle and slow, not just as an aspect of its healing nature, but by necessity. Most of the lymphatic vessels are just below the skin and stimulated by a light, slow pressure mimicking the natural pulsation and rhythm of the lymphatic system. A lymph massage can create a sensation similar to listening to the ebb and flow of the ocean’s waters. It’s almost like being bathed in the ocean and feeling the waves gently flow over you.
My clients are usually surprised when they find themselves truly sensing their own body’s rhythm. It’s a wonderful experience to be that connected to your body. That feeling alone is worth trying a lymph massage, but there are so many other benefits:
