What Does the Lymphatic System Do?
Your lymphatic system is an extensive drainage and regulatory network in the body. It is made up of a system of lymph nodes that ensure bodily fluids are sitting at the correct levels and defends your body against infections. The lymph nodes carry lymph, an excess watery fluid full of proteins. The lymphatic system's job is to clean the lymph and bring it back into the blood.
The Lymphatic system is one of the unsung heroes of your immune system and is responsible for cleaning a large portion of your blood every day. Like every other system in the body, varying health conditions can cause problems with the lymphatic system. This usually results in the body's inability to properly drain lymph and can cause lymphedema. This is when the excess lymph collects in bodily tissue and causes swelling.
When Is Lymphatic Massage Necessary?
People can develop lymphedema for different reasons. Common causes of lymphedema are infections and cancer treatments that involve the manipulation or removal of lymph nodes. The purpose of lymphatic massage is to reduce the swelling and restore the flow of the lymphatic system back to normal.
Lymphedema is the most common reason for needing a lymphatic massage. However, it must be noted that lymphedema, being congestion of the lymphatic system, does compromise the immune system. Therefore, it can be dangerous for patients who have congestive heart failure, blood clots, kidney problems, infections, or circulation problems. It is always advisable to speak with a doctor before getting a lymphatic massage if any of those conditions relate to you.
If you are suffering from swelling related to lymphedema in Orlando, you should give Alora Health Spa a call. Our staff will be happy to speak with you about any concerns you might have.
Understanding Lymph Nodes and Lymphatic Massage
Throughout the body, there are hundreds of lymph nodes that pertain to a system called the lymphatic system. This system filters harmful substances in your body and fights off infections. The majority of your lymph nodes are located in your head, neck, armpits, and around your groin.
Some diseases and conditions can cause liquid within the lymph nodes to build up, causing parts of your body to swell. A lymphatic massage encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body. Encouraging these fluids to move will help remove waste and toxins from your body tissues and prevent build up.
What to Expect During a Lymphatic Massage Therapy?
When you’re considering a lymphatic massage, it’s helpful to know what to expect.
For starters, it’s important to note that lymphatic massages are very gentle. This special massage technique helps lymph fluids to move around under the skin. Your massage therapist will not massage areas that are swollen or infected. The idea is to get the fluids circulating so that these infected areas can be treated.
After the massage is finished, it’s essential to drink a lot of water and flush out the body’s toxins.
Does Lymphatic Massage Work?
Lymphedema can vary in its severity but most of the time, a proper lymphatic massage can help alleviate symptoms. When a patient starts doing lymphatic massage, they should notice that the swelling has gone down, or at the very least, should stop the swelling from worsening.
In combination with receiving Lymphatic massages, the client should also be focusing on staying very hydrated and using compression socks or sleeves. Staying very active, maintaining a vegetable-heavy diet, and limiting processed foods of all kinds will assist in boosting your lymphatic system.
