What is Lymphatic Massage Therapy?
Lymphatic massage is a massage technique used to promote the flow of lymph through the lymphatic system in the body. Lymph is a clear fluid produced by the lymph nodes, located in the neck, chest, underarms, groin, and abdomen. The lymphatic system is the body’s filter system for toxins and harmful bacteria. This is why the lymphatic system is crucial to the body’s natural ability to heal.
Lymphatic massage focuses mostly on the upper body, the face, neck and underarms. The massage technique is very light, since lymphatic nodes are located directly under the skin. The lymphatic massage aims to imitate the natural flow of lymph through the lymphatic system clearing the body of harmful toxins and bacterias.
