LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE: SOOTHE YOUR SKIN
Our day-to-day life has become so consumed with everyone else’s needs that it’s virtually impossible to pause and check in with your own body. Being intentional about that check-in, especially as we age, prioritizes the self and reminds us that we are not invincible. If you’re noticing that your body has been swelling in certain areas for no apparent reason, it might be time to look into lymphatic drainage.
WHAT IS A LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE MASSAGE?
Manual lymphatic drainage is a gentle-handed form type of massage used to alleviate pain for swelling in the arms or legs created by our lymph nodes, or, more specifically – lymphedema. When your tissues hold onto excess fluid disposed of by your cardiovascular system, lymphedema is the result. That excess fluid is referred to as lymph.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE?
Lymphatic drainage can treat lymphedema in ways that compression bandages or stockings can’t. This specific massage supports the body's ability to maintain proper blood circulation. Our circulatory system is more than just blood cells and blood flow. Our blood vessels carry fluids to our vital organs and are very much a crucial part of our human mechanics.
Lymphatic drainage also supports a healthy body fluid equilibrium and other immune system functions. This massage can actually help address other health concerns, certain problems benefiting more than others. Rheumatoid arthritis, chronic venous insufficiency, and fibromyalgia have all been proven to respond well to lymphatic drainage.
HOW IS LYMPH DRAINAGE PERFORMED?
The word drainage itself is inherently a little concerning, and if you have anxiety around any type of procedure, no matter how simple, it’s important to know just how easy this process will be.
During your lymphatic drainage massage, your esthetician applies light pressure and extended, rhythmic strokes that kickstart the lymph fluid to get it moving. The lymph fluid is then guided toward organs that can effectively remove toxins released throughout this process.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS TO LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE?
Although very uncommon, reports of headaches, fatigue, and nausea have all come up post lymphatic drainage massage. Should these issues arise for you after your appointment, you can connect with your doctor about managing the side effects.
LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE AS PART OF YOUR PERSONALIZED FACIAL
When you head in for your facial appointment, there are certain services that can be added on for a little extra attention where it’s needed. Adding lymphatic drainage massage as part of your personalized facial can help you reap the benefits from your facial.
WHAT OTHER TREATMENTS ARE IN THE SIGNATURE FACIAL?
In your Signature Facial package, you’ll notice other services available that are included with your purchase. Dermaplaning, LED light therapy and deep pore cleansing using HydraFacial technology are just a few notable treatments available to you.
It also includes an infusion of targeted serums and intense hydration, exfoliation with a light blend of acids, and a facial, neck, and shoulder massage. We might be a little biased but the bang for your buck in this scenario is a no-brainer.
THE BENEFITS OF CUSTOMIZED FACIAL TREATMENTS
Going in for a standard facial is all well and good. But prioritizing your specific needs means targeting your exact concerns and focusing on the best way to take care of your skin. Customized facial treatments will always be the best approach as it takes into consideration your skin type and the outcome you want to achieve for your skin.
