When Should I Get a Lymphatic Massage?

When Should I Get a Lymphatic Massage?

Lymphatic massage; a gentle, relaxing approach that can help reduce swelling, flush out toxins, fight off disease, and much more. How do you know if you’re a candidate for lymphatic massage? Ask yourself these questions:

  • Do you suffer from chronic fatigue?
  • Do you have a sports injury or surgery?
  • Did you recently undergo liposuction or a tummy tuck?
  • Have you been asked by your doctor to receive lymphatic massage?

If you answered yes to any of these, you could benefit greatly from a lymphatic massage. Also known as lymphatic drainage, this massage has many benefits for the body and to the mind. The fluid in the lymphatic system transports nutrients and oxygen to the cells and pushes toxins out of the body through the lymph nodes. When these vessels have pressure applied to them, a massage therapist can stimulate the lymphatic system to improve lymph fluid flow to the heart and throughout the body.

Who Can Lymphatic Drainage Benefit?

Lymphatic massage can benefit many - from those who suffer from chronic fatigue to surgical patients and those with sports injuries. It can benefit the following:

  • Cosmetic surgery recipients
  • Skin disorders
  • Digestive problems
  • Swelling or edema
  • Frequent cold or flu
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Surgical patients
  • Sports injury or surgery

Lymphatic massages can greatly benefit women who have received liposuction, a BBL, or a tummy tuck. These cosmetic surgeries can disrupt the natural flow of the lymphatic system. If you’ve recently treated yourself to a mommy makeover, consider treating yourself to a massage to speed up your recovery time and relax.

For sports injuries, swelling, and edema, lymphatic can support a speedy recovery by reducing swelling and removing proteins and waste products and toxins from the area of infection or injury.

Lymphatic drainage is a gentle immune system booster, which is ideal for patients with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia.

Those who suffer from frequent colds or flu can seek relief through this massage. The lymph system is under a lot of stress from the illness and lymph nodes swell with white blood cells and waste. Lymphatic massage can get fluid moving and release congestion.

Surgical procedures involving lymph node removal can cause limbs to swell. While severe swelling requires medical attention, milder cases can benefit quite a bit to minimize swelling or even prevent it completely. Please talk to your doctor about seeing a massage therapist to get proper medical clearance.

Lymphatic massage is not recommended for acute inflammation, malignant tumors, thrombosis, and those with major heart problems.
