Lymphatic Massage or Lymph Drainage Massage
Elements Therapeutic Massage Spokane believes in the benefit of massage for all individuals. One area of Massage specialty for our therapists is Lymphatic Massage also known as Lymph Drainage Massage. The lymphatic system is comprised of the spleen, thymus, bone marrow, lymph nodes and lymph channels as well as tonsils and adenoids. The Mayo Clinic notes the vital role the lymph nodes, or lymph glands, play in the body’s ability to fight off viruses, bacteria and other causes of illness.
An essential part to the body’s drainage system, the lymphatic system works to help cleanse and filter out toxins and bacteria from the body. When not working correctly, frequent cold and flu infections, headache and migraines, joint pain, menstrual cramps, loss of appetite, fatigue, arthritis, mood irregularities, cellulite and depression can all occur.
Lymph Drainage Massage was developed in the 1930’s and at Elements Spokane we continue to recognize the benefits it can provide. The lymph system works through muscle contraction, deep breathing, exercise, and manual manipulation to move fluid, thus making massage a perfect venue to provide manual cleansing. Performed correctly, Lymphatic Massage can increase the volume of lymph flow exponentially while also stimulating the opening of the initial lymphatic.
A specialized Lymphatic Massage performed by trained therapists at Elements Massage Spokane can help increase the level of production in the lymph system helping in the removal of toxins. In addition to reducing the affects from a compromised lymphatic system, Lymph Drainage Massage can also be helpful in edema, sports injury, lack of energy or those suffering from a sluggish immune system.
At Elements Therapeutic Massage Spokane, each massage is individually customized to best fit your health and wellness regimen. Contact one of our Spokane Elements Therapeutic Massage locations to book an appointment with one of our specialists.
