Swelling is one of the greatest barriers to healing as it blocks circulation and limits your body’s ability to supply oxygen and nutrients to the cells.
Lymphatic drainage therapy assists healing by unblocking lymph (fluid) channels, and improving circulation so that the cells of your body can receive the essential supplies of oxygen and nutrients needed for repair and regeneration.
Lymphatic massage involves a complete system of gentle massage stroking to move swelling and improve fluid flow. This gentle therapy provides outstanding results in reducing fluid congestion due to poor blood and fluid flow as well as with joint swelling. It is especially effective for reducing swelling associated with chronic conditions, pre/post operations, facial conditions, lymph gland removal, cellulitis and poor circulation.
Lymphatic drainage treatment involves using lymphatic drainage supplements (or specialized compression bandaging and garments called Jobst Garments). These lymphatic drainage supplements provide specialized compression which further enhance the effect of lymphatic massage in preventing and minimizing swelling, improving circulation and oxygen, nutrient, waste product exchange and optimizing healing and repair.
Lymphatic drainage therapy provides wonderful benefits, not just in terms of improved healing, but with reducing pain, increasing freedom of movement and improving function as well.
Lymphatic drainage therapy is especially beneficial for people who have undergone joint replacement surgery, those who suffer from chronic swelling (e.g. Bursitis, tendinopathy, arthritis, diabetes, poor circulation, wound breakdown and ulcers associated with peripheral vascular disease) and people who have had their lymph nodes removed in association with cancer treatment.
