Lymphatic Drainage Massage
What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
Lymphatic drainage massage is a light technique available from Andrea Plumb Therapies, designed to stimulate the removal of lymphatic wastes from all over the body.
Unlike sports massage and other techniques, lymphatic drainage is not a muscular massage. It works wonderfully on the nervous and immune systems.
Some of the things lymphatic drainage massage is great for are:
- chronic fatigue
- neurological disorders
- improved wellbeing
- pregnancy & pain
- sore throats
- excess fluids
- low immunity
- swollen nodes
- and also for the physically inactive
How lymph drainage therapy benefits you
The lymph glands (at neck, armpits, groin, etc.) are connected by a broad network of vessels that transplant the fluid. The lymphatic system itself does not have a pump as the blood does with the heart; it only uses a system of passive one-way valves that relies on physical stimulation, either by gravity, movement or lymphatic massage. It is one of the five main elimination channels in your body along with skin, lungs, kidneys and bowels.
The lymphatic system is a major route for the absorption of nutrients from digestion into the tissues and it is also your body’s metabolic waste-disposal system. It clears toxins, unwanted proteins, and waste which cannot be removed by any other means from your tissues and cells.
These are by-products of metabolic wastes, stress, dead cells, metals, inorganic substances and other assorted debris that your cells cast off. Lymph drainage massage helps to facilitate the metabolic waste-disposal process, allowing you to enjoy improved health and wellbeing.
