What To Expect During a Lymphatic Drainage Massage Session in Our Wellness Center in Portsmouth, NH

A trained massage professional provides lymphatic drainage massage. They apply gentle pressure over the skin, which is not hard enough to be felt in the muscles. The massage doesn’t go over the swollen or infected areas. No lotions or other products are used during a massage.

The recipient prepares for massage by doing lymphatic breathing to help move fluid through the lymph nodes and vessels. Other parts of the body, such as the neck, arms, and knees, are prepared under the guidance of the massage professional.

Depending on the complaint, the upper body, the lower body, or both will receive a massage. For the upper body, lymph fluid is drained from the chest, upper arms, and shoulders. For the lower body, massaging the upper and lower legs facilitates the draining of lymph fluid.


Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage in Portsmouth, NH

Lymphatic drainage massage provides benefits to people who suffer a buildup of lymphatic fluid because of:

  • Filariasis, a disease caused when certain parasites carried by mosquitoes infest the lymph node.
  • Burn scar excision
  • Trauma or infection in the lymphatic system
  • Cancer or if the recipients received cancer treatments involving the removal of lymph nodes.
  • Health conditions that result in irregularities in blood flow to extremities
  • Vein thrombosis
  • Fibromyalgia

Lymphatic Drainage Massage Relieves Swelling of the Extremities

The improvement of movement of lymphatic fluid in the arms, hands, legs, or feet eases swelling on those parts, which restores mobility.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage Also Helps Relieve Swelling in Other Parts of the Body

Lymphatic drainage massage performed in the upper body also helps relieve swelling in areas such as the breast, chest, face, and shoulders. Lower body lymphatic drainage massage also helps quell the swelling in the groin.

Pain Relief

The improvements in blood flow and lymph fluid movement also help facilitate pain relief and changes in sensation.

Relieves Feelings of Heaviness

The improvement in lymphatic fluid movement improves mobility overall. Not only do the feet, arms, and legs enjoy the restoration of mobility, but the benefit of improved fluid flow also brings a feeling of lightness all over the body. This sensation also results in more ease in fitting into clothing because of the better sensation of freedom of movement.
