Lymphatic Drainage Massage at Health Center of Hillsborough

person getting a back massageLymphatic drainage massage is a gentle and effective technique to help increase lymph flow. It’s critical that the lymphatic system functions properly. That’s because it’s critical to the body’s ability to detoxify and regenerate tissues. The lymphatic system sifts out toxins and foreign materials, recovers essential substances that have escaped from the blood, and helps sustain a healthy immune system.

If the lymph circulation becomes inactive as a result of injury or infection, toxins build up and cellular metabolism is significantly compromised. The result is an increase in acid and toxins within the tissues, resulting in pain, tension, and edema.

These substances, along with the edema, must be removed swiftly from the interstitial fluid to promote proper tissue healing and reestablish proper movement without pain.

What Are Some Benefits?

Here are some of the primary benefits of a lymphatic drainage massage:

  • Boosts immunity: As the immune system is directly connected to the lymphatic system, lymphatic drainage massage can promote white blood cell circulation, enhance immune system function, and increase the production of antibodies. A lymphatic drainage massage can fend off infections like colds or flu and decrease inflammation. Those who tend to get sick are encouraged to get a lymphatic drainage massage on a regular basis.
  • Enhances skin health: If you have unhealthy skin as a result of poor circulation, lymphatic drainage massage could help to stimulate blood circulation. The result is nutrients will be brought to the surface, and toxins will be removed from skin cells.The massage can be helpful in addressing skin issues like eczema, rosacea, and acne. We don’t, however, recommend having this type of massage during an acute phase of a skin condition.
  • Improves breastfeeding: Some women experience breastfeeding issues often related to the baby improperly latching onto the breast. Breasts and nipples can then become sore and painful, and the ducts blocked. Lymphatic drainage massage is helpful as it can help to decrease swelling, improve blocked ducts and reduce soreness in the nipples and breasts.
  • Helps before and after surgery: Lymphatic drainage massage is beneficial before and after surgery, particularly in cosmetic procedures. It can boost blood flow, remove tissue fluid that’s become stagnant and decrease stress and anxiety associated with surgery.
