There have been popular nowadays that have now included in everyone’s beauty and health regimen; a lymphatic drainage massage!

You may have seen an uptick in the number of influencers, bloggers, celebrities, and models undergoing lymphatic drainage massages to cleanse their bodies in recent months. Why is that?

In this blog, we explain what lymphatic drainage massage does, its many benefits, when to have it, and more!

What is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

Lymphatic drainage massage is a well-known and clinically proven treatment procedure that produces rapid and visible results. It employs both pressure and relaxation phases to excite filaments in lymphatic capillaries and increases the amount of fluid absorbed by the lymphatic system.

The fluid in the lymphatic system assists in removing waste and poisons from the body’s tissues. Lymph fluid can accumulate as a result of certain medical disorders. People suffering from lymphedema, fibromyalgia, and other diseases might benefit from lymphatic drainage treatments.

What are the benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

This soothing technique is known to cure acne, cellulite, intestinal disorders, puffiness, stress, inflammation, sleeplessness, migraines, and other health difficulties, but that’s not all! A lymphatic drainage massage is also popular since it has the power to:

  • Defend against infection
  • Accelerate the healing and recovery process after a cold or flu.
  • Water retention reduced.
  • Increase your weight loss efforts.
  • Reduce the appearance of cellulite, skin edema, scar tissue, acne, and stretch marks.
  • Reduce weariness and stress.
  • Aid in post-exercise recuperation.

Pre-Surgical Benefits

  • Prepares tissue for surgery or hydrating and nourishing tissues
  • Detoxifies tissues, healthier skin look
  • Heals faster and stimulate the immune system
  • Causes relaxation

Post-Surgery Benefits

  • Alleviates post-surgical swelling, reduces pain and bruises
  • Reduces buildup of toxins
  • Stimulates fluid circulation and immune system
  • Improves cell regeneration and wound healing

When should you get a Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

For the most satisfying and best lymphatic drainage massage results, you should have got the treatment 24-72 hours after your procedure or surgery. As it will reduce the development of lumps that may form as a result of fluid and tissue trapped in the affected area. 

The frequency of therapy will be decided by the patient’s reaction to treatment. The majority of people prefer to have two sessions each week for a few weeks or longer. In rare circumstances, deep tissue release and scar tissue mobilization may be used with the session to break up any tissue fibrosis (lumps, bumps, and stiff spots) or any uneven look in the tissue.
