Lymph Drainage Therapy

A Certified Therapist, trained by Dr. Chickly (Upledger Institute) utilizes traditional lymph drainage techniques to detect the specific rhythm, direction, depth & quality of the lymph flow anywhere in the body. They utilize LDT to assess overall circulation and determine the best alternate pathways for draining the body-fluid stagnations.

The fluid in the lymphatic system helps separate body fluids from waste and contaminants. Some health conditions can cause fluid to build up in the lymph. Massages related to lymphatic drainage may help people with lymphedema, fibromyalgia, and other conditions.

Many people are familiar with the body’s vessel system which carries blood to and from the tissues, but few realize that there is another equally important vessel system which removes cell wastes, proteins, excess fluid, viruses , and bacteria. The lymph system absorbs fluids and waste materials from the cells’ rooms, and then removes and cleans them.

Like a tree’s roots, the lymph system starts as tiny vessels — only one single-cell wide — that gradually branch into wider and wider channels that bring these fluids out into the bloodstream. This network of fragile vessels and lymph nodes is the immune system’s prime structure. The lymph nodes serve as checkpoints in vessel pathways. We drain the fluid (called lymph) and function as the refuge for lymphocytes — small Pac Man-like cells that attack and kill foreign bacteria and viruses, and even rare cells, such as cancer cells.

We feel safe as the lymph system functions properly and provide a good protection against disease. We may have inflammation, feel drained, and be more vulnerable to colds and infections when it’s slow or blocked — say after surgery or an accident.

In this post, we describe the advantages of a lymphatic massage, and the people who may benefit from using it.

The Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

Although the heart actively pumps blood through the blood vessels, the lymphatic system depends on smooth muscle movement to transfer fluid through the lymph vessels.

Health conditions can disrupt normal lymph flow, leading to the build-up of lymph fluid in a particular region of the body, particularly in the arms or legs, where it can cause swelling. The disorder is known as lymphedema.
People may develop lymphedema as a result of infections, cancer treatments involving lymph node removal, and any condition that damages the lymph system.

Lymphatic drainage massage can benefit people who are experiencing the following:

  • lymphedema
  • fibromyalgia
  • swelling or edema
  • skin disorders
  • fatigue
  • insomnia
  • stress
  • digestive problems
  • arthritis
  • migraine episodes

People who use massages for lymphatic drainage can note their swelling decreases. Swelling should not get worse, at the very least.

Those with lymphedema will continue to use compression socks or sleeves to avoid swelling.

Those who use lymphatic massages to treat fibromyalgia may experience less rigidity and pain, as well as improvements in their overall state of health.

People can also boost their lymphatic system function and help eliminate more waste from the body using the following methods: drinking plenty of water remaining physically active eating vegetables and fruits limiting the intake of processed foods.
