Lymphatic drainage massage, also known as lymphatic massage therapy, is an excellent way to help detox the body and stimulate the lymphatic system, leading to soft and supple skin. At Rhemedy by Rhed, our massage therapists are highly trained in lymphatic drainage massage and can provide you with the feeling of rejuvenation and refreshment that comes from this type of massage. Read on to learn more about lymphatic drainage massage and how it can be your secret weapon to baby-smooth skin.
How Does Lymphatic Drainage Massage Work?
Lymphatic massage is a gentle, rhythmic massage technique that focuses on the body’s lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste, and other unwanted materials. By stimulating the lymphatic system, lymphatic drainage massage promotes the flow of lymphatic fluid and strengthens the immune system. This, in turn, leads to various benefits for the skin, especially on the face, neck, and back, that makes it soft and supple, including the following.
Reduced Water Retention
Lymphatic drainage massage helps to reduce water retention, which can cause puffiness and swelling. By promoting lymphatic flow, toxins, and excess fluids are removed from the skin and surrounding tissues, resulting in reduced puffiness and a more defined facial structure.
Promotion of Blood Circulation
Lymphatic massage therapy promotes blood circulation. Better circulation means better oxygenation, which results in healthier, brighter skin. It also boosts collagen production, leading to plumper, firmer skin.
Pesky Toxins Eliminated
Lymphatic drainage massage eliminates toxins and promotes healthy cellular renewal. When toxins and waste are removed from the body, cell regeneration and repair are promoted, resulting in softer, smoother skin.
