Lymphatic Drainage is light gentle body work generally using circular motions towards the heart. Our lymphatic drainage sessions always start out with skin brushing, circular motions towards the heart waking up your lymphatic system. The weight of a nickle is all that is needed to touch into this system from the surface, this is a very light bodywork.
I use gliding, compressing, stretching, cupping, brushing motions over the guests body. Light rhythmatic movement that helps stimulate the lymphatic system without compressing its vessels allows the lymph to move easily through the tissues and lymph nodes. Lymph nodes are found all through out the body but they can be found gathering more in certain areas, the neck, armpits, groin area and ankles. These are like the dumptruck stations all of the lymph delivers to be disposed of out of your system preventing infection and disease from setting in. Lymphatic drainage helps clean out these stations, and encourage the flow of the rest of your system into them.
You may want to support your body’s lymphatic system during the change of seasons, after an illness or injury, or following a particularly stressful time in your life. This is very light gentle cleansing work. I generally like to combine it with a Swedish Massage to keep a nice flow, this also prevents the guest from feeling too sick afterwards.
Hydration is imperative following your session.
