Lymphatic massage can acts as a detox for the system. Lymph carries toxins out of the body. The Lymphatic System is there to help heavier toxins—bacteria, viruses, things like that—move around what otherwise might just stay stagnant in an area. It activates circulation, drains excess fluid, stimulates your immune system, encourages your parasympathetic nervous system, decreases pain and can decrease muscle spasms,”
Lymphatic drainage massage, also known as manual lymphatic drainage, relieves swelling that happens when medical treatment or illness blocks your lymphatic system.
A lymphatic drainage massage is a two-step process:
Clearing: This step releases lymphatic fluid in your tissues.
Reabsorption: This step moves your lymphatic fluid to your lymph nodes.
