Who is a Good Candidate For Lymphatic Drainage Therapy? Patients with excessive swelling or prolonged swelling benefit greatly from lymph massage. Additionally, it is helpful for patients who have fluid build-up in other body parts. The lymphatic system is made up of a series of lymphatic, channels that run through the body and drain into larger lymph nodes. The lymphatic system is tasked with getting rid of waste, toxins, and other unwanted substances in the body. It also circulates a clear fluid called lymph throughout the body. Lymph contains white blood cells that help heal damaged tissues and fight off infection. A lymphatic massage should not be confused with a traditional one. Traditional massages focus on the patient’s muscles, improving blood flow and promoting healing. A post-surgical lymphatic massage focuses on the patient’s skin to improve the function of the lymphatic system. Wave-like, rhythmic strokes are used to open and close lymphatics, enabling areas with excess fluid to drain out. A lymphatic massage also stimulates the nervous system, leading to relaxation. It can also help reduce muscle fatigue, bruising, swelling, and delayed onset muscle soreness. Patients who get plastic surgery typically start their lymphatic massages about two weeks after their surgery. About three to five massages per week are often recommended. The benefits of these massages include: - The skin tissues heal much faster, shortening recovery time - It helps get rid of any anesthesia or medication left in the body - Reduced pain and discomfort during the recovery process - Bruising caused by the procedure heals faster - Leads to better performance of the circulatory system - Inflammation goes away faster People with health conditions like a current infection, kidney or liver issues, a history of strokes or blood clots, or congestive heart failure are usually not good candidates for a lymphatic massage because it can cause complications.
