Benefits of lymphatic massage

Painful overuse of your hands after hard work or swollen legs from standing can cause many ailments that massage may relieve. Some of these are stress and fluid build-up from the inflammation of bursitis, arthritis or autoimmune disorders, or lymphedema.

Potential benefits include

  • decreased joint pain
  • less arthritis pain
  • mood and energy boost
  • less-frequent infections
  • improved skin conditions
  • may alleviate migraines
  • may help menstrual cramps

Lymph is a clear fluid produced by an estimated 500 to 600 lymph nodes in your neck, chest, underarm, groin, and abdomen. This lymphatic system supports your body’s immune system, working with your spleen, tonsils, thymus, and adenoids. This system is your body’s filter for dangerous toxins and disease-promoting bacteria, and its health is crucial to your body’s ability to heal. Functionally, it helps detoxify the body, carrying waste products away from tissues back toward the heart. In the same way, lymphatic massage encourages this natural, healthy flow of lymph throughout the body.

Danish physiologists Emil and Estrid Vodder developed lymphatic massage stimulation in 1932. As a consequence of this massage, opening of the lymphatic glands results in an increased lymph flow. Lymphatic massage focuses on the upper body, the face, neck, and underarm regions. Light, rhythmic hand movements and a gentle application of pressure mimic the natural rhythm of the lymphatic system, resulting in a simple, non-invasive stimulation of lymph flow.
