Lymphatic Drainage Benefits
Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage
You might be wondering what benefits one gets when they have a lymphatic drainage massage or therapy. Well, here are some of the benefits that impact our health and wellness:
- Boosts Immunity. Did you know that the lymphatic system is our immune system’s first line of defence against diseases? A lymphatic massage transports lymphocytes and macrophages to kill off invaders (such as viruses and bacteria) and expel them and their cellular waste from our bodies. Regular sessions will encourage the circulation of these defensive cells throughout our body. This means that if you’re sick, you can heal faster naturally. It also fortifies your body’s defence system, so you won’t get sick easily, or not get the flu and other viruses.
- Promotes Gut Health. Our digestive system contains lymphatic vessels and hundreds of lymphatic nodes. And because we eat regularly throughout the day, our digestive system is exposed to all sorts of food that can contain different kinds of bacteria and other harmful chemicals that are sprayed on our food. Our digestive system’s small intestine has microscopic masses of tissues to keep the bacteria moving through our gut distinguishing whether it is harmful or not. If they’re detected to be harmful, the lymphatic vessels are triggered to flush these harmful bacteria. A lymphatic massage helps keep things moving in our gut, minimising the risk of bloating, cramping, and other unpleasant effects of food-borne diseases.
- Improves Digestion. Naturally, if a lymphatic massage promotes gut health, then it improves our digestion, too. The lymph vessels not only protect us from disease but aids in absorbing and metabolising the nutrients from the food we eat, especially fat. A slowed-down lymphatic circulation renders our body unable to absorb fat properly. If you are practising healthy eating habits, a lymphatic drainage massage will help maximise your benefits by absorbing the right amount of fat and keeping your blood glucose levels normal.
- Other Benefits. Lymphatic drainage massage helps mitigate edema or water retention as the massage employs techniques that help improve the condition. Other than the internal benefits mentioned above, lymphatic massage also has external effects such as healthier and radiant skin. As your immune system improves, scars, cellulite and other visible injuries heal faster and look better. The massage also helps get rid of cellulite.
