Lymphatic Drainage Movement

Hello my name is Brittney Hughes, I'm a massage therapist Licensed in the state of Louisiana.

I've been practicing for almost four years now and continue to fall in love with my job. I work in a chiropractic office but do massage sessions on the side as well.

One of the types of massage I've taken classes in is Lymphatic Drainage Movement.  This massage technique is such a powerful tool to use in overall healthcare. I've personally seen and felt the affects from it .

How it works:

Our body has hundreds of lymph nodes throughout as show by the picture above.  By using the proper movements for lymphatic flow we can actually pump out the fluid and kick start the immune system. It usually takes about 90 minutes to work on the entire body. Constant movement is key to flush out toxins that are stored in the body. It's very important to drink lots of water before and after this massage. The toxins that will rapidly release can cause dizziness, nausea, headaches and even fever.

I work with oncology patients before, during and after their treatments to help improve their immunity. The lymphatic system is like the garbage disposal of the body. Everyone at one time or another can have lymphatic congestion. Also the lymphatic system closely interacts with the endocrine system, so if you've been feeling just tired for no reason or have loss of energy it could be lymphatic congestion. 

Major effects of LDM:

Activates circulation, improves hydration of skin: wrinkles, pimples, skin eruptions. Breaks up (no get rid of) cellulite, absorbs undigested proteins, supports and stimulates the immune system, restores energy, and empties waste product of "fatigue" stress.

The benefits of this massage are astounding and can help get your body back on track.

 Sick and tired of being sick and tired? This massage just might be what you need.
