Lymphatic Massages – why they are needed and how to do it yourself

back massage therapyIn a single day, the lymphatic fluid that moves through the body can be up to 4 quarts of fluid. However, with lymphatic massage, up to 20 quarts can be achieved. In moving this stagnant fluid throughout the body, new lymph fluid can replace it. This also allows for pathogens, waste, and debris to be removed, ensuring cell and tissue renewal and strengthening. Patients with pain, swelling, and inflammation will notice an improvement, thanks to the boost to the immune system. 

At Acqua Med Spa of Webster, TX, we are excited to not only offer lymphatic massages, but can provide patients with the information they need to perform this process by themselves. Then, patients will notice the benefits of this treatment. 

Advantages of lymphatic drainage therapy 

Patients who learn about lymphatic drainage therapy, sometimes referred to as LDT, often have questions about the benefits this treatment provides.

Below are just a few of the reasons why patients choose to have this massage done either by our skilled team or at home: 

  • Decreases edema
  • Improves the immune system
  • Detoxes the body
  • Reduces bruising
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Stimulates the parasympathetic nervous system
  • Promotes faster healing following injury or surgery
  • Supports tissue regeneration

Where are lymph nodes? 

There are several parts of the body where lymph nodes reside. Large groups are found in the neck, under the arms, and in the groin. With self-massage, patients can help stimulate the lymphatic system at home. 

How do I perform self-massage at home to clear the lymphatic system? 

To perform lymphatic system massage at home, patients should stretch and release the skin in the following areas: 

  • Around the neck area, including the front, sides, and back
  • From the hip to the underarm
  • From the inside to the outside of the leg
  • Of the knee and lower leg
  • Around the feet and ankles
