Lymphatic Drainage is a method of bodywork that stimulates your lymphatic system to improve your immune system, manage stress, and reduce swelling throughout the body. The lymphatic system is directly tied to the immune system, but does not "pump" the same way our circulatory system does, and needs external stimulation to get it moving - something as simple as walking and measured breathing to something more directed like massage and stretching all helps to get the flow of lymph going. This is why we tend to get sicker easier when living a more sedentary lifestyle! Lymphatic Drainage as a modality works to mimic the direction and flow of the lymphatic system in a slow, deliberate, intentional way, and is great for flu season, to help heal scars, and as a gentle form of bodywork for clients with trauma.
Lymphatic Massage Therapy Sessions:
In Lymphatic Drainage, the body is separated into 3 sections in which lymph drains. You can schedule your session for just one area of the body, like the face and neck during allergy season, or knock out the full body in one appointment. Its suggested to start with a single area first, if you're not used to bodywork in general or lymphatic drainage in particular, as there can be a lot of build up to process.
When scheduling your session, it's suggested to split the full body treatment across three appointments to allow for enough time should your therapist find an area that needs special attention, especially if this is your first experience with Lymphatic Drainage. A la carte sessions are also available as needed.
