Lymphatic drainage

Lymphatic drainage is a highly specialised therapeutic massage treatment that
targets the lymphatic system. This technique increases lymph flow and encourages
natural drainage of the lymph from the body tissue and promotes lymph fluid to drain
out of a limb into an area that drains normally, increasing blood flow in deep and
superficial veins.
The massage uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes to
increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body. As a light pressure
massage this is ideal for sensitive areas or conditions such as Fibromyalgia where
other manual massages may be too heavy or painful.

The Importance of lymph drainage for good health

The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to
drain fluids, regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and foreign substances, and
maintain a healthy immune system.
Year round lymphatic drainage is recommended for healthy maintenance and if you
are physically active on a daily basis, two to four massage sessions within a month
at least 4 times per year is a good basis for active individuals. This helps keep your
immune system strong and ready to take on any physical challenges.
For health conditions requiring on going treatment more sessions may be required.
Each individual is assessed throughout their treatment and sessions are booked
accordingly.
Some of the health conditions that can benefit from Lymphatic Drainage Massage
are:- Rheumatoid Arthritis, Depression, Anxiety, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Multiple
Sclerosis, Fibromyalgia and Lymphedema which occurs when your lymph vessels
are unable to adequately drain lymph fluid, usually in the arm or leg

Deep tissue massage

The therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in
releasing chronic muscle tension. The pace tends to be slower and pressure is
applied more strongly, concentrated on problem areas. The use of forearms,
elbows, fingertips and knuckles as well as hands is used in order to break-up
adhesions. These bands of rigid tissue can cause pain and inflammation, and
restrict movement and circulation in muscle tissue. Deep tissue massage works to
realign the different layers of tissue, treating the tendons, ligaments and fascia (the
protective layer of tissues which surrounds the bones, joints and muscles) as well as
the muscles to release tension and provide pain relief and unlike other massage
techniques that focus on relaxation, deep tissue massage helps to treat
muscle pain and improve stiffness.
Muscle knots are the product of overworked muscles that are unable to relax and
this result in muscle fibres that become tangled and form a knot you can often feel.
… Sometimes muscle knots go away on their own but in many cases, steps need to
be taken to loosen the muscle and resolve the pain.
