When health conditions cause a buildup of lymph fluid, manual lymph drainage can help remove the waste products away from the tissues. Our Registered Massage Therapist provides this treatment.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT) is a hands-on technique which enables practitioners to detect the specific rhythm, direction and depth and is designed to attain and sustain proper functioning of the human fluid system.
A properly functioning lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to drain stagnant fluids, detoxify, regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and maintain a healthy immune system.
Lymph vessels rely on hundreds of tiny muscles (Lymphangions) contracting within the lymph vessels to propel lymph flow. These contractions enable the lymph vessels to transport substances such as proteins, toxins, hormones, fatty acids, immune cells to our lymph nodes which then process them.
Lymph flow can be hindered or stopped due to surgery, trauma, burns, infections, substantial swelling, fatigue, stress or age.
LDT enables practitioners to detect the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of the lymphatic flow to provide more precise out-comes.
