Lymphatic drainage massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage, is a gentle form of massage used to relieve painful swelling in the body. Lymphedema often affects people recovering from plastic surgery or people with health issues such as diabetes.
Lymphedema happens when your tissues retain fluid left behind after your cardiovascular system sends blood to your tissues and organs.
The remaining fluid is called lymph. Normally, your lymphatic system collects your lymph and returns it to your heart via a network of lymph vessels and lymph nodes. When something disrupts your lymphatic system's process, lymph collects in your arms and legs, making them swell.
A massage therapist uses lymphatic drainage massage techniques to move lymph from your tissues to your lymph nodes, which eases the swelling in your tissues.
Lymphatic drainage is necessary after having any kind of plastic surgery because the body's natural response to having invasive surgery such as liposuction is to swell up. In order to reduce the swelling and bring the body back into balance, lymphatic drainage is necessary. Flushing out the excess lymph from the system will help you heal faster as well as help you to see your desired results quicker.
Lymphatic drainage is also extremely helpful for overall health and weight loss. It helps to keep you healthy from foreign invaders like viruses and harmful bacteria. But when that system becomes compromised, so does your ability to form a strong defense.
The lymphatic system is part of the body’s immune system and helps defend against bacteria and other intruders. For people who tend to retain excess water weight, Lymphatic drainage is extremely helpful in flushing out excess fluid from the body.
Lymphatic drainage and body sculpting go hand in hand. We use a cavitation machine that uses high frequency ultrasound, radio frequency and lasers to help shape and sculpt the body.
The high frequency ultrasound breaks down and melts stubborn belly fat. It is also healing and used for people who have undergone plastic surgery such as liposuction. The high frequency ultrasound also helps to sculpt and shape the body as desired.
Radio Frequency is used to tighten and tone the skin and the lasers are used to melt excess fat and improve digestion and circulation.
