What is Lymphatic Drainage?

Lymphatic drainage, or manual lymphatic drainage, is a specialized kind of medical massage aimed at improving the flow of lymph fluid to reduce swelling. Typically, your lymphatic system collects your lymph and takes it back to your heart via the lymph nodes and vessels. If something disrupts this process, the lymph collects in your legs and arms, causing them to swell. During a lymphatic drainage treatment in Houston, a massage therapist professionally moves lymph from your tissues to the lymph nodes in order to ease the swelling.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Lymphatic Massage?

A lymphatic drainage treatment is ideal for anyone with swollen lymph nodes, and swelling in the legs or any other part of the body. It can also benefit someone with sleep issues and fatigue. The massage is not painful, and helps promote lymph health and natural drainage.

Generally, lymphatic drainage massage is a safe treatment to relieve a number of issues. However, there are some conditions and circumstances where the treatment is not recommended. This includes:

  • If you have a heart condition
  • You have blood clots
  • You have an infection
  • You have kidney failure

For the best results, we may recommend you have treatment once per week or even twice per week. Regular treatment can benefit the health of the lymphatic system while providing a daily relaxation experience.

Benefits of a Lymphatic Drainage Treatment

A lymphatic treatment helps restore movement in the lymph and ensure your lymph nodes are draining well again. Regular treatments can be quite beneficial for your long-term health. Here are a few reasons to schedule a lymphatic drainage treatment in Houston:

  • Strengthen the immune system: A healthy functional lymph system helps remove harmful waste and toxins from the body. If you have been getting sick lately, it could be due to an issue with your lymph nodes. Try lymphatic drainage to improve your immunity.
  • Better sleep: Lymphatic drainage reduce pain and stress, and promotes healing. The treatment is ideal for anyone having trouble going to bed.
  • Resolve sinus issues: Lymphatic drainage is highly decongestive. If your lymph is not flowing correctly, you are likely to experience allergy issues or sinus. Draining the lymph nodes that function with sinuses helps get everything flowing again.
  • Reduced leg swelling: Poor leg circulation could be due to your lymph nodes. If you have started to notice pain, swelling, or discomfort in your legs, schedule a consultation with a Lymphatic Drainage therapist to help clear up the lymph in your legs.

Our massage sessions typically last between 30 and 60 minutes. The exact duration of the treatment depends on your specific needs. If you have severe issues, several treatment sessions may be necessary before you see dramatic results.

Potential Side Effects

There are usually no significant side effects with lymphatic drainage. However, a few patients may experience headaches, nausea, and fatigue after the treatment. If this happens, ask us about managing these side effects.

Lymphatic drainage is never painful and it uses pressure applied to critical areas to unblock the flow. Because soft pressure is constantly applied and increased slowly, the technique is entirely painless.
