How can a Lymphatic Drainage Massage help you?

For athletes, strenuous workouts and competitions generate toxins and cellular debris within muscle tissue. If you’ve had an injury or surgery you will also notice swelling in that region. This is the bodies natural way of protecting itself. However, after time these compounds inhibit the natural flow of lymph, preventing efficient healing. In other words, the body loses its efficiency to flush out these waste fluids so they pool in areas of the body creating swelling or edema.

Major benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage for athletes include:

  • Up to a 10x increase in lymph flow, driving a faster recovery
  • An analgesic effect on pain, permitting greater range of movement
  • A strong reduction in swelling and inflammation, promoting faster healing
  • And accelerated softening and healing of fibrous scar tissue.

History of Lymphatic Drainage:

Developed by French scientists in the 1930s, Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) has become the most well-known and commonly practiced technique to help naturally drain the lymph from tissues. In the 1950s, these same scientists received invitations from across Europe to teach this method. From there, the technique developed into a staple part of massage therapy practices with thousands of certified instructors and therapists worldwide.

What to expect:

If you have edema or swelling due to strenuous activity, an injury or post surgery, Lymphatic Drainage Massage may be the service for you.

Your treatment will begin with a one-on-one assessment to analyze the reason you are seeking this type of treatment. This is your opportunity to explain your recent injury or surgery and to point out the areas of swelling that need to be worked on.

Your therapist will start by focusing on the main areas of the lymphatic system, which include the neck, abdomen, armpits, hips, liver, and kidneys. They will use a light, flowing, and repetitive touch to guide lymphatic drainage. The treatment itself is extremely gentle and lotions and creams are typically not even required. If your therapist has extra time they can provide standard therapeutic massage to release tension in your muscles or offer relaxation.

Other things you should know:

Please note – Lymphatic Drainage is not a “detox”.

A medical clearance may be required if you have had recent surgery or a serious injury. Hydrate prior to your appointment. This will ensure you get the most out of your session. If you are on pain medication or any other medication, it is best to discuss Lymphatic Drainage Massage with your doctor before booking an appointment. This type of massage can cause drugs to metabolize more quickly in the body. Further, wear clothes that you feel comfortable in – preferable something loose. And avoid alcohol and heavy foods before your appointment.
