Lymphatic Massage also called Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a type of light massage that encourages lymph flow in the body (Brown, 2015). This type of massage is great for detoxification, scar tissue, spider veins, redness, and acne among others (Brown, 2015). This is because the lymph system is a system of vessels and lymph nodes that are supplementary to the body’s blood circulation (Brown, 2015). This system helps to distribute nutrients to every cell in the body (Brown, 2015).
This system also carries away the excess water, cellular waste, bacteria, viruses, and toxins (Brown, 2015). The therapist help the body drain all of toxins by performing a Lymphatic Massage. It is recommended that after a Lymphatic Massage the individual must drink plenty of water to help the system flush out the toxins (Brown, 2015). In addition, stay away of salt and alcohol since they do not allow the body the ability to flush out toxins (Brown, 2015).
