Lymphatic Drainage Massage
With Heather, Cindy or Carrie
Any type of massage will help reduce swelling, increase tissue regeneration and reduce stress. But a lymphatic massage is specifically designed to focus on congested areas of fluid in the body. By encouraging lymph flow, this gentle form of bodywork can help restore immune function and improve vitality. When the lymph system works well, we feel healthy and have a strong defense against illness. When it’s sluggish or blocked—say after surgery or an injury—we can have swelling, feel tired, and be more susceptible to colds and infections. This session features light, rhythmic strokes in the direction of lymphatic flow and includes about 10-15 minutes of quiet rest time alone on the table after the massage is completed, for a total session time of 60 minutes. A great option for boosting the immune system when the seasons change! Give your immune system a boost prior to the cold and flu season or promote optimal immune function after a long winter season.
This massage is also effective for many people who suffer from autoimmune disorders such as fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome, as well as chronic pain disorders such as arthritis and MS.
