The lymphatic system is often overlooked, until we have a problem. Responsible for moving waste, filtering our system and transporting infection fighting immune cells, the lymphatic system is one of the most important systems in the human body.
Lymphatic massage is slow, methodical and highly effective. With correct techniques, a practitioner can stimulate the opening of the lymphatic system and increase lymph flow volume by as much as 20 times. Too much pressure can cause the initial lymphatic to collapse, therefore diminishing flow.
Lymphatic massage is an excellent modality for clients with edema, or anyone feeling tired or sluggish. It is also suitable for those recovering from a sports injury or a compromised immune system. A thorough assessment will help us determine if this type of massage is the best for you.
