The Benefits of Lymphatic Massage

Updated: Dec 8, 2022

Have you ever heard about Lymphatic Massage? Let’s talk about this massage for today.

What is Lymphatic Massage?

Lymphatic massage (also known as Lymphatic Drainage Massage) is a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body. This massage has become popular to its potential for health benefits especially because it focuses on the lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system. The good news is now you can get this massage at Shapecare Therapy.

What is the Benefit of Lymphatic Massage?

Lymphatic massage in Shapecare Therapy aims to help the body maintain proper blood circulation, body fluid balance, and immune functions. While the heart continuously pumps blood through the blood vessels, the lymphatic system relies on the movement of smooth muscles to transport the fluid through the lymph vessels so in this situation lymphatic massage can improve circulation and reduce swelling.

Who can get the benefit of Lymphatic Massage?

Lymphatic massage can benefit people who are experiencing the following: Skin disorders, Fatigue, Stress, Arthritis, Lymphedema, Fibromyalgia, Swelling or edema, Digestive problems, and Migraine. Bear in mind that for those of you who are congestive heart failure, blood clots, kidney problems, infections, or circulation problems you should talk to your doctor before performing this massage.

How to perform a Lymphatic massage

We can really get the lymphatic massages from trained professionals like the team from Shapecare Therapy, or we can actually learn basic drainage techniques to use at home. However, it is always best to speak to your doctor first before either trying this at home or going to a professional. We can perform most of these exercises either standing, sitting, or lying down, as long as we are comfortable.

Tips during a Lymphatic Massage:

Here are some tips from Shapecare Therapy before performing a Lymphatic Massage:

  • Use gentle pressure on your skin and do not press hard enough to feel the muscles.

  • Keep your hands relaxed.

  • Do not massage swollen or infected areas.

  • Do not massage areas of the body that have undergone treatment for cancer.

  • Drink extra fluids, ideally 2 to 4 glasses of water, after each massage to help flush the body.
