Ashley Rocheleau (Registered Massage Therapist) from the Back to Health Wellness Centre in Ottawa, ON explains the Lymphatic system, Lymphatic Drainage Massage and more in this video!

Lymphatic massage focuses specifically on boosting your immune system naturally by helping your lymphatic system to function at top capacity. It is a gentle and slower massage targeted to move lymph and swelling, which can cause pain and malaise. Because the flow of lymph is slower than that of blood is it can be restricted or blocked more easy. When this flow is blocked, your body’s ability to get rid of those toxins and repair more quickly is slowed. Lymphatic massage techniques help to alleviate those blockages and get the lymph moving again, giving your body a better chance to heal itself.

With all those stressors out there it’s natural for our body to start to feel worn down. If you’re recovering from an injury, having joint pain or swelling, or even if you just want an immune boost, having a lymphatic massage is a healthy and natural way to do so. Talk to your registered massage therapist today about the benefits that lymphatic massage can offer. Your body will be glad you did.
