Lymph Drainage Massage

Understanding the lymphatic system

The lymphatic system is a complex network of vessels and ducts that move fluid throughout the body and is responsible for moving toxins away from healthy cells and carrying germ-fighting materials to cells when they are under attack by viruses. Though fluid moves through the lymphatic system, it does not have its own pumping mechanism.
The fluid distributes immune cells and other factors throughout the body. It also interacts with the blood circulatory system to drain fluid from cells and tissues.
The lymphatic system contains immune cells called lymphocytes, which protect the body against antigens (viruses, bacteria, etc.) that invade the body.

Detox role of lymphatic system

The lymphatic system has a vital and detox role in the body. The lymphatic system works in close cooperation with other body systems to perform these important functions:

- The lymphatic system aids the immune system in destroying pathogens and filtering waste so that the lymph can be safely returned to the circulatory system.

- To remove excess fluid, waste, debris, dead blood cells, pathogens, cancer cells, and toxins from these cells and the tissue spaces between them.

- The lymphatic system also works with the circulatory system to deliver nutrients, oxygen, and hormones from the blood to the cells that make up the tissues of the body.

Damage disturbs the Lymph flow

We are bombarded daily with environmental pollutants, which enter our bodies through the air we breathe, and chemical additives in the food we eat. Many factors contribute to a sluggish or stagnant lymph flow. Common to many of us are a lack of adequate exercise, fatigue, a stressful lifestyle and age. Even emotional shock, the physical shock of a minor car accident, the stress on one's system from cold temperatures and, of course, infections can cause the lymph is not properly moving. When lymphatic tissues or lymph nodes have been damaged, destroyed or removed, lymph cannot drain normally from the affected area. When this happens excess lymph accumulates and results in the swelling from slight to significant. The significant swelling may be indication of lymphedema.

Manual Lymph Drainage treatment

- Drainage areas. The treatment of lymphedema is based on the natural structures and the flow of lymph. The affected drainage area determines the pattern of the manual lymph drainage (MLD) and for self-massage. Although lymph does not normally cross from one area to another, MLD stimulates the flow from one area to another. It also encourages the formation of new lymph drainage pathways.

- Manual Lymph Drainage treatment begin by stimulating the area near the terminus and the larger lymphatic vessels. This stimulates the flow of lymph that is already in the system and frees space for the flow of the lymph that is going to enter the capillaries during the treatment.

Manual Lymph drinage treatment - Manual Lymph Drainage treatment continues as a gentle massage technique to stimulate the movement of the excess lymph in affected tissues. The rhythmic, light strokes of MLD provide just the right pressure to encourage this excess lymph to flow into the lymph capillaries.

Our clinic will help you to meet these challenges and many other challenges created by a modern lifestyle. Our trained practitioners with a gentle, light touch of a flat hand or fingertips will do lymphatic drainage to stimulate lymphatic work of your organism and to improve your well-being

Why it Works

The main lymph vessels run up the legs, up the arms and up the torso. This is why the vertical up and down movement of rebounding is so effective to pump the lymph. The lymph fluid moves through these channels called "vessels" that are filled with one way valves, so the lymph always moves in the same direction – usually upward away from gravity.

Anything that can stimulate the movement of lymph fluid inside the lymph vessels of the system is healthy, but the most efficient way to stimulate the flow of lymph fluid is by rebounding. The up and down rhythmic bouncing causes all of the one-way valves to open and close simultaneously increasing lymph flow as much as fifteen times! That's powerful!
