WHAT IS THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM?
A watery substance called lymph travels through the network of tiny veins that make up the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system, which is a component of the immune system, functions as the body’s drainage system (lymphatic drainage system), cleaning up and eliminating all waste produced by other bodily systems. Both the food you eat and the typical breakdown of working muscles can produce waste.
WHAT IS LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE?
An extremely light form of massage therapy called manual lymph drainage massage uses specialized methods to increase the flow of lymph under the skin. By exerting pressure on the body and moving in particular rhythmic patterns, one can alter the lymphatic flow.
The massage techniques are specifically designed to promote lymph drainage. The goal of this massage is to increase blood circulation for more effective waste disposal by activating the lymph vessel’s muscles so that they may contact more frequently. Manual lymphatic drainage is a very soothing massage that can also potentially lower stress levels. Both massage oils and no oils can be used when giving a manual lymphatic drainage massage.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES OF LDM (LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE)?
Manual lymphatic drainage massage stimulates lymphatic flow by applying pressure and making rhythmic movements. A manual lymphatic drainage massage may have the following advantages:
- Lowering the accumulation of fluid and/or tissue swelling is known as lymphedema.
- Stress reduction and inducing relaxation.
Always get medical advice before beginning any treatment.
