Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a specialized massage type that gently assists the lymphatic system in maintaining the body’s fluid balance, blood circulation, and immune mechanisms. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the bodily tissues. Lymph nodes, which filter out the debris, are found throughout the body, with especially large groups of them in the neck, armpits, and groin. These major collections of lymph nodes ensure that the lymph passes through as many nodes as possible before it returns to the circulatory system.

During a lymph drainage massage, a specially-trained massage therapist uses a series of gliding, compressing, stretching, and cupping motions over the client’s body. The light rhythmic movements, applied without massage oil, stimulate the lymphatic system without compressing the vessels – allowing lymph to move easily through the tissues and lymph nodes. Lymphatic Drainage massage follows a specific sequence over the body so lymph isn’t trapped anywhere, making sure every area is treated with care.

Who Could Benefit by A Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

Lymphatic drainage was originally developed as a treatment for lymphedema (a condition marked by swelling and the buildup of lymph in the body’s soft tissues, usually as the result of infection, injury, cancer treatment, surgery, or genetic disorders affecting the lymph system).

One common use of lymphatic drainage is in the treatment of lymphedema resulting from the removal of lymph nodes as part of breast cancer surgery.

In addition, lymphatic drainage is sometimes used for people dealing with such issues as:

  • Arthritis
  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Knee or hip surgery
  • Chronic venous insufficiency
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Swelling and fatigue associated with menopause
  • Stress
  • Insomnia
  • Recovery from cosmetic surgery

Precautions

Lymphatic drainage should be avoided by individuals experiencing any of the following:

  • Congestive heart failure
  • Kidney function problems
  • Inflammation or infection of the lymphatic vessels
  • Increased risk of blood clotting
  • Skin infection
  • Post-surgery lymphedema marked by localized swelling

If you’re considering the use of lymphatic drainage in the treatment of a condition, it’s important to consult your health care provider to see if it’s the best course of treatment for you.

Oncology Massage

Oncology Massage can be a beneficial adjunctive therapy for people affected with cancer including those in active treatment. Multiple recent studies link gentle oncology massage with significant reductions in pain, fatigue, nausea, depression, and anxiety. Study after study reports improvements in some or all of these symptoms following massage.

Having cancer can be one of life’s most stressful experiences. For most people, massage is an immediate antidote to stress, pain and discomfort. The relaxing and rejuvenating effects of massage shift people away from the stress response which tenses muscles and inhibits digestion, to the relaxation response which enables the body’s self-healing resources to be fully available.

The National Cancer Institute recently uncovered that Chemotherapy-Induced Peripheral Neuropathy (CIPN) is often one reason why cancer patients stop treatment early. Fortunately, researchers recently reported at an Oncology Symposium that massage therapy can ease symptoms of CIPN, as well as improve one’s quality of life.

Oncology massage is comfort based with a gentle touch tailored to each individual’s needs. It can be received fully clothed. It is relaxing, restorative and nourishing for the mind, body and spirit.
