Our lymphatic system is crucial to helping our bodies heal. The lymphoid system consists of many organs that work together to rid the body of excess waste. Medical surgeries, cosmetic procedures, or just regular buildup within the system are all reasons one may need a lymphatic drainage massage. Read on to learn more about this specific massage and what it can do for you!
If you have just undergone a procedure, manual drainage is perfect for you. Recovering from a surgery can be painful. This is why having a trained professional manually help remove congestion from the body really helps to alleviate pain. Lymphatic drainage massages essentially help the toxins within your body (causing pain, swelling, or discomfort) get to your lymph nodes quicker. Other benefits to this include: the nodes are able to flush out the toxins, prevent the clogging from happening again, speed up recovery, reduce scarring, and rehabilitate the natural flow of the body.
Whether you have recently had a cosmetic procedure or an orthopedic procedure, lymphatic drainage massage can help with your recovery. Once your doctor allows for you to have a massage after a specific recovery period, you can schedule your appointment with Aruna.
Although post-surgery recovery is often when people seek lymphatic drainage massage the most– this form of therapy works brilliantly for other signs of buildup. Other reasons manual drainage may be the solution for you include:
- Swollen lymph nodes (your lymph nodes can be located in your neck, underarm/armpit, groin, chest, and abdomen)
- Swollen fingers
- Digestive issues
If any of these sound like you, or you are concerned you may be experiencing congestion. Reach out to Aruna at Therapeutic Medical Massage to review what is best for you.
