Lymphatic massage is also referred to as LDT (lymphatic Drainage Therapy), and it is a method of assisting the body with the release of toxins held within the lymph nodes. The procedure was first developed in Germany, for the treatment of lymphedema, a condition experienced by patients who have undergone mastectomy and treatment for breast cancer.
There are many benefits to LDT for health and wellness, in addition to providing healing and holistic support for patients living with cancer. Circulation of the lymph helps redirect stagnant fluids from the skin, and promotes the reduction of inflammation throughout the body. The parasympathetic system is stimulated, and LDT has also been studied for positive outcomes addressing chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune diseases, arthritis, and skin disorders including acne and eczema.
There are certain health conditions where LDT is contraindicated, and not recommended. Our certified therapist will provide a qualitative consultation to identify any concerns, before lymph drainage and massage therapies are provided.
