What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage And Why Should You Try It?

Usually when people hear about Lymphatic Drainage Massage one of two things happen, they have never heard of it, or assume it is a specialized type of medical massage therapy. While it’s reputation as being a medical form of massage is accurate, it has become a technique of choice, especially as a beauty treatment, due to its multitude of aesthetic and health benefits; And we think everyone needs to try it!

So what is Lymphatic Drainage massage?

Lymphatic Drainage massage is an effective and gentle massage technique used to cleanse the body naturally, while encouraging blood circulation and improving the immune system. Some health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up and this type of massage encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body and drains excess fluid. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins within the bodily tissues.

During a Lymphatic Drainage massage, a Rejuve massage therapist will use a light  pressure and stretching motions over the client’s body, from feet to finger tips! The light rhythmic movements stimulate the lymphatic system which causes debris found throughout the body to filter out.  This results in an all natural full body detoxifying effect.

What are the benefits?

Lymphatic Drainage massage offers many medical benefits, including aiding with swelling and managing various health conditions. The immune system is tied directly to the lymphatic system. In fact, Lymphatic Drainage massages can improve the function of the immune system and increase the production of antibodies that fight off infections and even flush out byproducts and anesthesia post-surgery.
