Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a technique used by massage therapists to provide relief from edema, an accumulation of fluids in the tissues that causes swelling and pain. Lymphedema has serious complications such as bacterial infections that can cause cellulitis. This condition causes stiffness and soreness of muscles.
Kathy Curry, Licensed Massage Therapist and Owner of Huntsville Massage Professionals is a Certified Lymphatic Drainage Massage Therapist. She has undergone extensive training in procedures to help eliminate the pain and suffering associated with edema and lymphedema. The beneficial effects of Lymphatic Drainage Massage include stimulating the lymphatic circulation of immune cells in the lymph vessels and nodes. This massage procedure also softens and minimizes scar tissue, improves circulation after surgeries, reduces pain and inflammation, reduces stress and tension and improves the overall condition of the body as a whole.
Within us all there is a silent system working to keep us healthy...the lymph system. Without it, out bodies would swell up like balloons, swamping our cells with stagnant fluid. The lymph system's impact is so far reaching that many don't even realize that minor aches and pains, allergies, low energy or susceptibility to colds and flu may be due to a sluggish lymph system and a compromised immune system.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage's effectiveness lies in its ability to increase the flow of lymph through the lymph vessels. Lymph vessels make up an intricate meshwork that covers every inch of your skin and surrounds each organ in great detail. The primary function of lymph nodes is to filter and purify the lymph. The lymph nodes produce various types of lymphocytes. Lymphocytes destroy harmful substances within the body and are an important part of the immune system. Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a technique that helps to increase lymph flow. An increase in lymph flow stimulates an increased production of lymphocytes, thus enhancing immune function. Lymphatic Drainage Massage can be applied to clients who are suffering from a lack of energy to stimulate circulation. For surgery patients, escpecially vascular and cosmetic surgeries, LDM enhances health and reduces swelling and edema, promoting healing at a much faster rate. LDM is also useful when working with clients who have sports injuries. After the initial inflammatory stage has passed, lymphatic work can be applied to clear the tissue of debris and help to reduce the edema or swelling that comes with injury or trauma to an area of the body. Continued applications of this technique while the client is healing can help to enhance the tissue regeneration process by keeping the tissue as healthy as possible. Another common use for Lymphatic Drainage Massage is with women who have had surgery for breast cancer and had axillary lymph nodes removed. This can result in edema and pain in the arms. Only a massage therapist who is highly trained in LDM and with a good knowledge of contraindications can provide the techniques to clear the fluid from the arms. When we have a strong immune system, we are happy, balanced and whole. LDM can go where Deep Tissue and Swedish Massage cannot...into swollen areas. The paradox is that such a superficial technique has such a deep impact.
Massage Therapy reduces the need for pain killers/drugs, reduces pain and inflammation, reduces stress and tension, and improves the overall condition of the body as a whole. Call Kathy today at 256-738-3469 to schedule an appointment for massage therapy.
