Lymphatic Massage in Charlotte
The lymphatic system in the body plays a very crucial role. It assists the body in eliminating waste.
The system uses rhythmic movements of muscle tissues to remove this waste. Unfortunately, sometimes extreme muscle strain and damage can lead to building up of fluids in the lymph nodes causing discomfort.
This condition is referred to as lymphedema. If you have such a buildup of lymph fluids, a lymphatic massage is the best prescription for you.
What is a Lymphatic Massage?
Lymphatic Massage is a manual lymph fluid drainage massage technique that helps redirect lymph away from areas that are swollen.
This type of massage involves gentle rhythmic strokes to the swollen areas from a massage therapist.

THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM
What Comprises of the Lymphatic System?
The lymphatic system consists of tissues that transport lymph fluid which in turn carries white blood cells which fight disease causing microorganisms. This system helps get rid of waste and toxins in the body.
What causes a buildup of lymph fluids?
Most of the time, lymph buildups occur when someone gets an injury surrounding the lymph nodes such as the neck. Also, surgery that tampers with your lymph nodes may cause swelling.
How does a Lymphatic Massage help?
A lymphatic massage involves gentle strokes that helps circulate lymphatic fluid in various body organs.
This manipulation of the lymph fluid helps streamline the lymphatic drainage in tissues. This helps the body eliminate waste, toxins and prevent blockage in the lymph circulation that may cause Oedema.
Who is a candidate for a Lymphatic Massage?
- Cancer patients whose surgery may affect the lymph nodes (e.g breast cancer).
- Patients who have undergone surgery in the legs or other parts where lymph nodes are removed.
