Lymphatic Drainage Massage / Visceral Manipulation

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy and Lymphatic Clearing

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy aims to gently and rhythmically balance the lymphatic flow through the body, managing fluid and enhancing the functioning of the immune system. As both a preventative and remedial technique, lymphatic drainage massage can be used for a wide range of purposes including faster recover from injury, reduction of swelling from both edema and lymphedema, and more.

Lymphatic Massage for internal organs, digestive and respiratory systems flushes out mucus congestion, accelerates disease recovery, strengthens immunity. Incredibly powerful preventative & restorative hands-on method helps constipation, gas, bloating, diarrhea, irritable bowel, cancer recovery, weight loss, sluggish digestion, PMS, PID, chronic fatigue, and any disorder that could be helped by increasing the body's waste elimination process.
Lymphatic facilitation is also deeply relaxing. This too helps boost immune function.

How It Works: the Lymph System

The lymph system is a critical part of our immune system, playing a crucial role in the body’s ability to heal from injury, ward off disease, and purify itself.  It includes a network of thin vessels, nodes, tissues, ducts, and organs (e.g. spleen, thymus, bone marrow) throughout your entire body.

The lymphatic system has three major functions:

* It removes excess fluids from body tissues.

* It defends the body against harmful micro-organisms.
* It absorbs fats and fat-soluble vitamins from the digestive system and transports them to the circulatory system.

The lymphatic system has no pumping mechanism (such as the heart has for arterial blood flow) and depends on muscle contraction through deep, abdominal breathing and exercise to move its fluid.

A sluggish lymphatic system can contribute to many health issues, including an increase in the frequency and severity of illnesses; joint pain; headaches; arthritis; fatigue; acne; slow healing of wounds; and swelling in extremities.

When the lymphatic drainage becomes impaired for some reason, lymphatic massage, with its ultra-light touch and pumping motion performed in the correct sequence and direction, can greatly increase lymphatic flow.  This helps the body remove toxins; brings white blood cells and nutrients to cells; and decreases inflammation.

Visceral Manipulation
Visceral Manipulation is a gentle non invasive touch that encourages normal mobility, tone and motion of organs and connective tissue, improving functioning of individual organs and organ systems.

Visceral Manipulation has been used in many traditional cultures to facilitate general health.
