The Science of Massage
Manual Stimulation and Drainage of the Body’s Internal Systems.
That “hurt so good” feeling you get when just the right spot is pressed is the release of tension and knots in your muscles and the movement of your body’s own unique variety of healing serum – called Lymph to any damaged tissue to help speed up recovery.
You may already have pressed at the Lymph-nodes in your neck or under your chin when you felt a cold coming on, but did you know your Lymphatic System is a complex network of nodes and vessels that run throughout your entire body?
The main job of the Lymphatic System is to keep and transport Lymph (basically, body-water mixed with various cells, including those involved in fighting disease and repairing damage) throughout the body and deliver it to the areas that need it to heal. Sometimes, however, the body doesn’t send the signals that start up the Lymph-Train and you need a gentle, soothing, push to get yourself back on the right track.
Cue Manual Stimulation a.k.a. Lymphatic Drainage Massage.
Not all massage is created equally.
Let’s be real – we don’t always want the same kind of massage. Some days, we like it rough…others, we prefer gentler touch to soothe aches and pains. Massage for Lymphatic Drainage is no different.
Lymphatic Massage is commonly referred to as Lymphatic Drainage. Lymphatic drainage is a gentle, rhythmical massage treatment performed by a specially trained lymphatic massage therapist to stimulate the circulation of lymph fluid around the body. This helps to rapidly speed up the removal of wastes and toxins from a sluggish lymphatic system. Lymphatic massage can also aid in the prevention of swelling after injury or surgery. It is also thought to provide a major boost to your immune system. -PhysioWorks.Com Definition
You can’t just thrash Lymph around the body, Willy-Nilly, and it’s important to know where and how deeply to push. Hint: not very deeply. It can be tough to reach all your own bits, so if you’re looking for a whole-body Lymphatic Massage, best to find a licensed professional in your area and get to relaxing.
On top of the many whole-body benefits for Lymphatic Massage, there are many benefits to lymphatic drainage for your face and skin!
Evidence has shown that stimulation of the lymphatic system may improve skin appearance, tone, texture and there is research to prove it’s benefits to those with conditions like Acne, Eczema, chronic swelling,
Benefits aside, facial massage feels good, and that’s all the reason we need.
