Lymphatic Drainage Massage in Cheltenham.

Everything you need to know.

The lymphatic system runs throughout the body and is part of the immune system which helps protect the body against infection. This system is made up of a network of vessels which connects lymph nodes together. Lymph fluid passes through these nodes and transports nutrients and oxygen to cells, collecting toxins on their way and flushing them out of the body. The lymph system has no pump so relies upon the pressure from the blood vessels and movement from muscles to push the lymphatic fluid around the body. Keeping the flow and drainage of the lymph system is really important for general health and a lymphatic drainage massage can help to keep this system working.

Lymphatic drainage facial massage works to increase the flow of the lymph fluid around the face and shoulders which in turn reduces the toxins in the body. A lymphatic drainage facial massage is similar in many ways to other facials you may have had and will take place in a heated room which is an important factor for increasing the lymphatic flow. Your therapist will use very light pressure and long gentle strokes on your face and shoulders in the direction of your main lymph nodes which are in the neck and armpits.

Anyone can benefit from lymphatic drainage facial massage due to the overall health benefits it brings. Lymphatic drainage facial massage can be used to help many health conditions and is recommended following some surgeries and for those suffering with swelling. It is also beneficial to those with arthritis, sclerosis, fibromyalgia and the menopause.

Who needs a lymphatic drainage massage?

Everyone can benefit from a lymphatic drainage massage as it is really important to keep the flow and drainage of the lymphatic system working to protect your body against infection. Movement in the muscles is what keeps the lymph fluid moving around the body so people who don’t get much movement can particularly benefit from this treatment. Those suffering with conditions such as lymphedema and fibromyalgia can also really benefit from a lymphatic drainage massage.

Are there any side effects to lymphatic drainage massage?

You may feel very tired following a lymphatic drainage massage, this is because the massage is a healing process and the body starts to relax through the massage of the lymphatic vessels and nodes.

For a short while following the massage, you may also experience the need to go to the toilet more often, this is because the aim of the massage is to get fluid moving to remove the toxins from your body which will be excreted from the body.

How else can I improve my lymphatic system?

Drinking plenty of water everyday is a great way to flush toxins out of your system and help with lymphatic drainage. Being more active and exercising regularly, particularly running and swimming, encourages a healthy lymph flow by putting pressure on the lymphatic vessels and keeping the system moving. Dry brushing your body in circular movements can also improve the internal flow of the lymphatic system.

Who will carry out the lymphatic drainage massage?

At Stratum Clinics Cheltenham, your lymphatic drainage massage will be carried out by a fully qualified and experienced skin therapist.

Is there anyone who can’t have lymphatic drainage massage?

It is not recommended for those with tumours, thrombosis or major heart problems.
