The thinking is that a "clogged" lymphatic system equals all sorts of health problems—and that can be true. Cells depend on lymphatic fluid (which is full of disease-fighting white blood cells) to transport substances, communicate with other cells, and help them carry out their duties. So a damaged network can complicate those processes, contributing to issues such as lymphedema, and chronic swelling in a specific area of the body. In the medical field, we use manual lymph drainage to help people who have had damage to their lymphatic system following surgery, trauma, or developmental disorders. Lymph drainage can be beneficial because there are specific techniques to assist with moving lymphatic fluid out of the damaged areas to other areas in the body that are functioning normally. If you have an injury, especially one in your lower leg. "Injured areas do not circulate fluids well, so when you have a lot of swelling in there, you want to do a lymphatic drainage massage" as opposed to a traditional soft tissue massage. Gravity pulling fluid down can make swelling worse for lower leg injuries, but a massage can get that fluid moving away from the area. If you have an injury with major swelling. If you've ever injured yourself and watched a body part quickly blow up to the size of a grapefruit, that's another sign you may need a lymphatic drainage massage to help move that fluid along. If you have an infection. This signals strongly that your lymphatic system isn't working properly. If you have tight muscles. This is less common, but tight muscles can also prevent fluid from flowing properly in your body. *Before purchasing our packages please note: Any packages purchased have an expiry date of 30 days from your purchase date.
