During the Covid-19 epidemic, most of our clients here at Massage Rx have grown increasingly interested in lymphatic drainage massage because the procedure is said to enhance immunity and lower stress levels. 

What is COVID-19?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious illness caused by a recently identified coronavirus. Most COVID-19 virus-infected people have mild to moderate respiratory illness and will recover without therapy. However, people aged 60 and up and those with underlying medical problems like cardiovascular disease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, and cancer are at a higher risk of developing the said illnesses.

COVID-19 patients cannot return to their optimal health levels for weeks or even months after contracting the virus, and they have reported a severe loss of energy, among other symptoms, such as the following:

  • Persistent fatigue
  • Muscular pains
  • Generally unwell
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Increases anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Difficulty reading, trouble in concentration, and a bad memory
  • Dry skin

Because Covid-19 is a very aggressive virus that damages the immune and lymphatic systems, your energy levels will increase after your systems have stabilized. This is why it is imperative to get a lymphatic massage to get toxins out of the body as quickly as possible, helping the immune system to recover faster.

Lymphatic drainage offers several advantages for both the body and the skin, which is stated below:

4 Types of Lymphatic Drainage Massage Techniques

All of the lymphatic drainage massage techniques listed below work on the same basic premise. They all stretch the skin in the direction of lymph flow with mild motions:

  1. Vodder – This fundamental technique employs sweeping motions around the region being treated by the therapist.
  2. Foldi – Foldi, a Vodder method extension, requires the massage therapist to alternate between circular hand movements and periods of relaxation.
  3. Casley-Smith – This lymphatic massage technique utilizes circular hand strokes, particularly with the sides and palms of the hands.
  4. Leduc – This type of lymphatic massage technique gathers lymph fluid before directing it for reabsorption into the lymphatic system.
