The Benefits of Lymphatic Massage:
There are an astounding number of benefits to lymphatic drainage. The most important function is to improve circulation. Your therapist will gently manipulate your lymph nodes and aid them in filtering the toxins and debris in the body. These impurities will be flushed out along with any water retention or swelling and restore the full function of your immune system. Lymphatic drainage is not only used to prevent infection, but to aid in the healing of injuries and infection. It has been proven to be significantly helpful for those that experience chronic sinus and ear infections. Lymphatic massage also vastly improves digestion and can have a slimming effect as it clears out water and swelling retained in the body.
Be gentle with yourself after lymphatic drainage. Drink lots of water to help your body flush out the toxins and to prevent dehydration. Avoid alcohol for at least 24 hours afterwards and avoid hot baths, showers, or sauna’s immediately after treatment. Rest and take it easy for the rest of the day or engage in a walk or light exercise to boost circulation benefits.
