Maintain A Healthy Immune System
Lymphatic Drainage, a light massage therapy treatment, helps in increasing the lymphatic system’s function. The lymphatic system is made up of lymph nodes and lymphatic vessels that drain unwanted fluids. It is responsible for transporting lymph fluid into the body so that toxins and metabolic waste can be removed. If there is any obstruction to this flow, toxins will start accumulating in the body. This is where lymphatic drain massage comes in.
What is lymphatic drainage?
Lymphatic drainage is a type of massage that encourages the removal of waste products from the body. The body uses the lymphatic system for this, which is a part of the circulatory system made up of lymphatic vessels. These vessels carry a clear fluid known as lymph towards the heart. They are also used for delivering nutrients to the cell and carrying away cellular waste products, toxins, viruses, and excess water. When this natural flow is obstructed, you need a lymphatic drainage massage to do the job. By stimulating the lymphatic system, it helps in detoxifying the body and strengthening the immune system.
How is the lymphatic system associated with the immune system?
As discussed above, the lymphatic circulatory system works with the cardiovascular circulatory system directly in order to keep the lymphatic fluid levels and blood in balance. It also flushes out toxins from the body and carries immune cells which help defend against infections. However, there isn’t a strong organ like a heart in the lymphatic system that can keep the fluid flowing. Instead, it is stimulated by muscle contraction (exercise), breathing, hydrotherapy (alternating cold and hot water on the skin), and lymph drainage therapy.
If, because of some reason, the lymphatic circulation is slowed or stagnated, the toxins will start to accumulate in one place and immune cells won’t be transferred to the body parts where they are needed. This can cause several ailments. If you are lucky, you will only experience pains, aches, and swelling. However, this can also lead to deterioration of your tonsils, spleen, and thymus gland – all of which are key components of the immune system. Your body will become weak and won’t be able to fight against diseases and infections.
How can manual lymphatic drainage massage help?
What you need to do is consult a professional clinic like Orlando Massage clinic, one of the best massage clinics. You will have access to a licensed massage therapist trained and experienced in lymphatic drainage therapy techniques. The technique involves moving the hands over the body for detecting and assessing current lymph flow patterns. After that, they will move them in a way to release the blockages from the network of lymph vessels and nodes. They will apply the pressure in a way that targets lymph nodes and vessels. It results in the activation of lymphatic fluid circulation and stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous and immune system.
By visiting Orlando Massage Clinic, you will be able to take advantage of all the benefits lymph drainage therapy has to offer, including detoxification, tissue regeneration, reduction of inflammatory responses, and deep relaxation.
