Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic Drainage Massage | Dr. Bali’s Bliss Center
In order to understand the role of Lymphatic Drainage Massage for good health and immunity, it’s important to know what lymph flow is and why one needs to do this Massage.
Lymph is a fluid flowing in lymph vessels, like blood flowing in blood vessels. Lymph channels carry impurities back to the heart to get purified and flow back as healthy blood through blood vessels to nourish and oxygenate all tissues, cells, and organs in our body.
The lymphatic system is an important part of our immune system. Through a network of hundreds of lymph nodes, a certain fluid called lymph drains out toxic waste and gets transported back into our bloodstream after purification. This process improves the overall circulation and helps in reducing swelling caused by blockages in its natural flow during surgical procedures, etc.
Conditions in which lymph flow gets sluggish:
- Any prolonged illness.
- Immobility after surgery.
- Lack of Exercise
Post Operative Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Sluggish lymph flow due to immobility after surgery causes swelling in surrounding tissues due to the retention of toxic waste. It is done by applying soft, gentle strokes to activate lymph flow through lymph channels towards the central lymph node and then to the heart for purification, also draining toxic waste along the way.
Role of Lymphatic Drainage Massage in Liposuction
After liposuction, lymph flow gets obstructed due to the tampering of surrounding tissues during the surgical procedure, which leads to swelling. This massage helps reduce swelling by enhancing lymph flow. It also helps to remove the toxicity of blood caused by heavy medications post-surgery.
Similarly, it helps in the recovery of all types of cut-open surgeries, like caesarean, knee, ankle, foot surgery, all open abdominal surgeries, etc.
Importance of Lymphatic drainage massage
When there’s any kind of obstruction in your lymphatic system, fluid can start to build up. Lymphatic drainage massage helps to move that fluid and remove the toxic blood flow.
What Happens During a Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
Light rhythmic movements stimulate the lymphatic system without pressing hard on the vessel. They make the lymph fluid, move easily through the nodes and tissues, making sure the fluid doesn’t get trapped anywhere.
Conditions in which lymphatic drainage massage is helpful
It’s been used to treat lymphoedema. Lymph edema means swelling due to the collection of lymph fluid. The swelling is caused by lymph fluid that’s collected in the soft tissues due to genetic disorders, injury, infection, cancer treatment such as chemotherapy, and all other post-surgical conditions. Symptoms of lymph edema include:
- Skin discoloration,bruising due to blood clots
- Tissue swelling
- Heaviness in the limbs
- Hardening or thickening of the skin
- Recurring infections
This Massage helps to ease all the above symptoms by enhancing the lymph flow.
As the disease progresses, lymph flow gets poor and produces symptoms like-
- Tissue swelling
- Pain in the joints
- Joints lose their function
- Skin changes color.
Lymph drainage massage can help ease these later-stage rheumatoid arthritis symptoms.
Chronic venous insufficiency
In this condition, the valves or walls of the veins that are in the legs do not function properly. This makes it hard for the blood to flow back to the heart from the legs. Lymphatic drainage massage can help increase the speed of blood flow towards the heart.
Lymph drainage massage may help people with fibromyalgia. This condition causes inflammation of the nerves in the skin, discoloration of the skin, and tissue swelling. This massage helps in treating stiffness and improving quality of life.
Thus, lymphatic drainage massage is very valuable in all postoperative phases as well as in reducing the severity of many other inflammatory diseases.
