This is a highly specialized Massage Technique to increase lymphatic circulation and stimulate the drainage of sluggish lymph nodes which will in turn detoxify the body. It also will boost the immune system by stimulating the formation of white blood cells that produce antibodies to increase the bodies resistance to infection. This is particularly important to areas of the body that are inflamed or have decreased mobility. The lymphatic system is a part of the circulatory system within the tissues that moves interstitial fluid and clears away waste products, bacteria, and cellular debris for ultimate removal by the kidneys.
Unlike blood circulation which relies on the heart to pump, the lymphatics are moved by breathing and muscle contractions. When there is damage to the tissues from injury or surgery or the muscles are inactive from lack of exercise, Manual Lymphatic Drainage can help to flush metabolic wastes and excess edema from the tissues as well as stimulate the immune system for better health. To further enhance this treatment, our Certified Lymphatic Drainage Therapists can combine this technique with the use of Wullstone Infrared Therapy.
