Deflating. Me. Please!

Here in Return to Glory Head Office we get numerous queries regarding Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage and exactly what the massage achieves and who it is best directed too.

Of course, Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a fine and relaxing treatment for everyone to have but there are many people out there who may not realise Lymphatic Drainage – and especially a course of these massages could help to alleviate symptoms that they are suffering from.

How do you know if you need a Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

Lymphedema, the condition that causes the below symptoms (swelling in a limb, discomfort, that feeling of pins and needles) affects a lot of people. It’s estimated at approximately 100 million people worldwide.

Some of the symptoms can include swelling of an affected limb – which may develop gradually or suddenly, discomfort or a feeling of “pins and needles”, tight-fitting of a ring, wristwatch, or bracelet – markedly without a gain in weight.  In the warm weather such as we are experiencing now – many people notice a change in their body, skin feels tight and uncomfortable. A lymphatic Drainage massage with a trained expert (and all of our mobile massage experts who offer this treatment are certified in this treatment especially) could be the answer to relieving the discomfort.

What does a Lymphatic Drainage Massage entail?

It’s name sounds scary and invasive – we know as have to advise a lot of people to try it on the phone. But results are achieved not by massaging a certain part of the body, but by stimulating the lymph flow and detoxification – which is an all over the body process.  The Lymph drainage massage is an exceptionally light massage technique.  When the treatment is given the skin is moved over the underlying tissue in the direction that the lymph needs to move.  This stimulates the lymphatic vessels and increases lymphatic flow.

What’s the difference between this massage and a regular massage?

A lymphatic drainage treatment is designed towards to working lymphatic fluid towards the drainage ducts, whereas a regular massage works on various other facets mostly muscular and skeletal.
