Traditionally, spring is the time to sweep out junk and clutter that has accumulated in our homes over the long winter months. How great it feels to get rid of it all and to get set to welcome in the joyful, lighter energy of spring!
Our bodies benefit from spring cleaning, as well. The lymphatic system, which helps us fight disease, over time succumbs to the influences of infection, poor diet, and stress. Fluid builds up in glands and tissues, which in turn further obstructs the body’s release of toxins. Lymphatic drainage massage provides a gentle sweep of sluggish vessels, thereby increasing lymph flow and encouraging additional cleansing to occur.
A lymphatic drainage massage differs from relaxation or deep tissue massage. While clients do relax deeply when receiving a lymphatic drainage massage, the pressure applied is feather light, and no oil is used. Gentle range-of-motion movements of major joints help to pump lymph along its intended route.
Allergic symptoms, arthritis, colds, colitis, sinusitis, chronically swollen glands, poor weight balance, psoriasis and edema can improve with this type of treatment. Lymphatic massage also helps rid the body of the waste byproducts of exercise and exposure to environmental toxins.
Wow. Legs look pretty good this morning. You’re amazing. Swelling on the outside part of the foot is also going down. Thank you. -V.K.
