Lymphatic Drainage Massage

 

Most people are familiar with the body’s blood vessels which carry blood to and from the tissues. But few understand there is another equally vital system of vessels that remove cell waste, excess fluid, Proteins, viruses and bacteria. This is the lymph system, which picks up fluid and waste products from the spaces between the cells and then filter and cleans them. When the Lymph System is backed up or blocked after trauma or surgery we can feel sluggish, puffy, swollen, tired which leaves us more susceptible to colds and infections.

 

Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM) is a specific type of bodywork that is rhythmic in motion and light in pressure. This helps the body’s lymph system to work better, which in turn supports the body’s immune system. This work is very relaxing, slow and repetitive. It works deeply with the autonomic nervous system to calm both the body and mind.
