Relaxation and muscular relief may come to mind when you consider having a massage. But what about a massage, which may help with immune system strength and muscle tone? Those are some of the possible lymphatic drainage massage benefits you can get!

What Exactly is A Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

Before we go into what a lymphatic drainage massage is, it is vital to understand what is a lymphatic system and what it does.

The lymphatic system is a network of veins and other organs that maintains the equilibrium of bodily fluids. It functions similarly to the circulatory system, except there is no central organ that pumps lymph. It defends the body against infections, poisons, and waste products as part of the immune system. So, in essence, it’s a sanitation system that keeps waste products out and nutrients flowing efficiently throughout the body. 

On the other hand, activity isn’t always enough to properly circulate lymph through your body. Also, this can result in a variety of issues, ranging from illness to tiredness. And this is where the healing magic of lymphatic drainage massage comes in! Having a reliable massage therapist, such as Massage Rx, one of the best providers of quality massage therapy in Los Angeles, utilizing hand movements to start your lymph nodes emptying and your lymph flowing again might be beneficial.

How To Do Lymphatic Massage At Home?

On the subject of giving a lymphatic massage at home, experts are divided. While some feel that this sort of health treatment should be left to the professionals, we at Massage Rx, one of the trusted in-home massage therapy providers, believe that a DIY lymphatic massage is achievable. Follow these guidelines on how to do lymphatic massage at home :

  • In the neck: Find the main collecting ducts in the hollow just above your collarbone. Use mild pressure to gradually draw the skin down in a steady, circular motion. Repeat on the other side.
  • Under your armpits: Place the other hand straight on the skin beneath the armpit. Press slowly up into the armpit at a moderate speed, apply mild pressure. Repeat with the other arm.
  • In the stomach: Gently place both hands on your abdomen. Next, take a deep breath and softly press your stomach into your hands. After that, exhale and softly press your navel towards your spine. Repeat.
  •  In the legs: Place your palms precisely in the crease of your thigh. Using a wavelike motion, apply moderate pressure on the thighs toward the navel. Repeat.
