Lymphatic drainage massage
It is the queen among the soft touch massages
Manual lymphatic drainage is a special dry massage technique using slow and precisely defined motions on the body. These motions will activate the movement of the lymph under the skin, draining it towards the lymph nodes.
The lymph is a clear or misty body fluid, that is flowing in the lymphatic system similar to the blood stream. Daily, about 2 to 3 litres of the lymph will flow in this network, 60 to 80% under the skin. We can call the lymph a sewage of the organism.
The lymph carries the water from the tissues along with the residues of the metabolism, harmful and toxic materials not being able to be transported in the blood stream. This leads to shrinking of the swellings, overall body volume, detox and activation of the immune system.
The lymphatic drainage technique is concentrating on the sub-skin region (in contrast to the normal massage techniques used for the muscles underneath). Is is conducted by circular and spiral motions of the hands on the skin with specified pressure, specified slow frequency, without the use of oils.
The masseur/masseuse will gently move the lymph toward the nodes.
Actually is possible only lymphatic drainage of the face.
