Here at Centre 4 Health, we are excited to announce that as part of our Remedial Massage Caulfield services, we now offer Lymphatic Drainage Massage! So what is Lymphatic Drainage Massage and who is it for?
Lympathic Drainage Massage is a gentle and rhythmic massage that helps to stimulate the flow of lymph fluid around the body. Your lymphatic system is your body’s first line of defence against disease and infection. By stimulating it through this specialised style of massage, it helps speed up the removal of toxins and waste throughout the body. It can also help to provide a big boost to your immune system.
So what sort of conditions might Lymphatic Drainage Massage be helpful for?
If you’re looking to minimise or reduce swelling after surgery or injury, then it might just be what you’re looking for. If you’re undertaking a detox, then Lympathic Drainage is the perfect complement to help flush out your toxins.
Lymphatic Drainage Massage can help with more serious conditions such lymphoedema, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, lupus, depression and anxiety. It also helps to reduce the frequency of reoccurring infections such as colds, flus and yeast infections.
For those who are undergoing cancer treatment, Lymphatic Drainage Massage is an excellent complementary treatment. This is because it addresses the known immune system dysregulation seen in patients with cancer. It is particularly helpful for those who have had lymph nodes damaged or entirely removed.
So what does a Lymphatic Drainage Massage involve?
After taking a thorough history of the patient, our specially trained therapists will determine how best to treat the patient’s condition. Patients generally lie on their back and are covered in towels to protect their modesty. The therapist will use light and gentle strokes in a rhythmic fashion specifically designed to stimulate the flow of lymph fluid. Sessions typically last an hour but can go for up to 90 minutes.
If you have any other questions about Lymphatic Drainage Massage or would like to make an appointment with our remedial massage therapist in Caulfield for a treatment, please call us at Centre 4 Health on 9193 2170, or book online here. We look forward to helping you improve your lymphatic health!
