My experience with Joel was very good. I suffer lower back pain and Joel knows exactly the right pressure and angles for a treatment that really helped. Knowledgeable and skilled, Joel was very kind and talked me through the process. I recommend Joel as a therapist to those in physical need.

I had a great experience with Peter. I am a marathon runner with chorionic tightness in back and hip. He was able to treat my issues, recommend a better treatment approach, and have me walking out feeling revived and ready for my next run.

What happens during a lymphatic drainage massage?

During a lymphatic drainage massage, the therapist will use light pressure in a circular motion to warm up lymph nodes and watersheds. This allows for the lymph fluid to be process and drained more rapidly. This therapist will then use a pumping motion working from the drainage points first then to the affected areas.

See, your lymphatic system unlike your circulatory system, doesn’t have a heart to pump the fluid around. Instead there are a series of one way valves that pump the fluid to nodes where it is process. After this it is returned to your venous system where it exits your body via your bladder.

 

When you get a Lymphatic drainage massage the techniques will have 3 main effects:

1. Clear out the deep lymphatic ducts
2. Thin and move the fluid to the nodes
3. Stimulate your nodes to process fluid faster

What is the lymphatic system?

The lymphatic system is a network of lymph vessels, lymph nodes, and lymphatic organs. This system is responsible for collecting and transporting lymphatic fluid throughout the body. Lymphatic fluid is a clear fluid that contains white blood cells, which are essential for fighting off infections and disease.

The lymphatic system is also responsible for removing waste and toxins from the body. When the lymphatic system is not functioning properly, waste and toxins can build up in the body, leading to swelling and inflammation.

What is lymphatic drainage?

Lymphatic drainage is a technique that helps to stimulate the flow of lymphatic fluid throughout the body. This technique involves applying gentle pressure to specific areas of the body to help move the lymphatic fluid along.

Lymphatic drainage can be done manually, which involves a trained practitioner using their hands to apply gentle pressure to specific areas of the body. For best results it’s done in conjunction with lymphatic taping, compression garments, physical movement, hydration and stress reduction.

During a lymphatic drainage session, the practitioner will start by gently massaging the lymph nodes in the neck to help stimulate lymphatic flow. They will then work their way down the body, using gentle pressure to move the lymphatic fluid towards the lymph nodes. This can be targeted specifically to an area or performed generally for the whole body, depending on what you need.

The pressure used during lymphatic drainage is very gentle, and the technique should not be painful. In fact, many people find lymphatic drainage to be relaxing and enjoyable.

Is lymphatic drainage safe?

Lymphatic drainage is generally considered safe for most people. However, there are some situations where it may not be appropriate. For example, people with certain medical conditions, such as congestive heart failure, kidney problems, or liver disease, should avoid lymphatic drainage.

Blood clots can be dislodged by massage leading to dangerous conditions, if you suspect you have a clot please see you doctor.

It is important to consult with a healthcare provider before starting lymphatic drainage, especially if you have any underlying health conditions. A trained lymphatic drainage practitioner can also help to determine if the technique is appropriate for you.

In addition, it is important to drink plenty of water after a lymphatic drainage session to help flush out any toxins that may have been released during the treatment.
