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 bacterium.
Lymphatic massage uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic strokes to increase the flow of lymph and reduce toxins in your body. It transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, collecting toxins along the way and flushing them out through the lymph nodes.
Life is too short to live with chronic pain and nagging stress.
