Lymphatic Release Technique works with the circulatory, nervous and lymphatic system to improve circulation & lymphatic flow - removing toxins from the body by movement through stimulation of both the surface and deeper underlying tissues.
Groin lymph and breast tissue are also massaged.
Please note: This is NOT a deep tissue massage!
This is not suitable to someone with lymphedema, pitting or gross swelling. This is a gentle stimulating massage using strokes with light to moderate pressure to both clear and release lymph for a healthy flow.
Lymph Release can benefit just about everyone. If you're feeling tired, low on energy, or if you've been sick and feeling like your body is fighting to get back on track, this would likely serve you well.
In addition, athletes, surgical patients, fibromyaliga and chronic fatigue sufferers may want to consider lymphatic massage.
After a sports injury or surgery, lymph vessels can become overwhelmed with the demand placed on them. When tissues are swollen, deep tissue techniques may actually cause damage to the lymph vessels and surrounding structures. Lymphatic massage is often the treatment of choice, because it helps the body remove proteins and waste products from the affected area and reduce the swelling. This helps reduce pressure on cells and allows them to reproduce faster to heal the body. Lymph massage can also be part of a care program for fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome because it's so gentle and well tolerated by these patients, who are often experiencing sore trigger points throughout the body. By encouraging lymph flow and removing waste products, this gentle form of bodywork can help restore immune function and improve vitality.
