Lymphatic Drainage massage (LDM) is a gentle, rhythmic style of massage. This use of very light pressure and constant movements is designed to mimic the lymphatic system and reduce swelling by removing toxins from the body. A typical 50-minute session will usually only cover one section of the body which allows the therapist to thoroughly address that area of concern. Clients find it to be a very relaxing experience and often fall asleep during their treatment.
Lymph massage can be very beneficial when used with cosmetic surgery. This therapy can be used before and after surgery to speed healing and reduce edema. Before surgery at Calobrace & Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery Center, LDM helps to remove stagnant fluid from tissues and increase blood flow, which brings nutrients to the tissues. After surgery, LDM can help to remove inflammation, speed healing, and reduce scar tissue.
Lymphatic massage has the ability to enhance the skin and is particularly useful I facial work. The massage removes wastes and toxins from skin cells and improves lymph circulation which greatly enhances the appearance of the skin. LDM is also effective in helping with conditions such as acne, rosacea, and eczema.
Improved immunity is another benefit of lymphatic massage. If you are tired, low on energy or find yourself getting sick often, your lymphatic system may be sluggish. LDM can be very beneficial by encouraging lymph flow and removing waste products. A series of Lymphatic massage sessions is very effective in restoring immune function and improving vitality. It is recommended to receive a Lymphatic massage at least once a week for a three-month period to stimulate the lymph circulation and improve immunity.
To get the most out of your lymph massage session show up to your CaloSpa Rejuvenation Center appointment fully hydrated, and continue to drink at least 8 glasses of water the days following your massage. When scheduling your appointment it is helpful to state what benefit you are hoping to achieve and where is the area to be addressed. This allows the therapist to be fully equipped with the right equipment for the area to be addressed. Lastly, come with a positive mind and ready to enjoy a very relaxing massage.
