Lymphatic Massage, Sometimes know as Brazilian Lymphatic Massage, helps speed up your lymphatic flow and decrease congestion of fluid in the body.
The bodies Lymphatic system is responsible for absorbing, catching and eliminating everything that your body doesen't need or want anymore. Such as metabolic waste, Hormones, bacterias, virus, dead cells and any foreign matter that get into your body. Once in the Lymphatic System, the immune system takes over and eliminates what it can, and the remainder gets filtered out via our liver and colon.
The Lymphatic system is also responsible for bringing Lipids ( fat cells) from our digestive tract to the circulatory system, so they can be spread throughout the body and used for energy.
It's also plays an important role in balancing the amount of fluid in the body. Keeping our body, cells and tissues hydrated, but not overwhelmed with stagnant fluid.
Basically think of the Lymphatic System as the filter system in a fish tank. Keeping the water clean, and oxygenated so the fish can thrive
A slow, congested, and sluggish Lymphatic System can lead to a multitude of health issues. Just think what happens when a fish tanks filter breaks down. The water get murky, full of fish poop, bacteria, and Algae. The fish gradually become unhealthy and can even die.
The same happens inside our body. If the lymphatic system is congested and slow, it cannot do it's filtering and eliminating, leaving our tissues and cells surrounded with unhealthy waste. This can greatly affect the overall general health of your tissues, systems, and overall wellbeing.
Our Lymphatic Massage focuses on unblocking common areas of congestion, and then speeding up lymphatic flow.

Why does the lymphatic system become slow and sluggish?
There are many reasons the lymphatic system can become congested and slow, but one of the primary reasons is because it doesen’t have a natural pump to help with its circulation.
It relies on muscle contraction and in fluid pressure. Since our lifestyles have become more sedentary and we tend to be dehydrated, lymph flow gradually becomes affected. Tight, dehydrated and restricted fascia can also block lymphatic flow. A large portion of the lymphatic system is located in the superficial fascia. If the fascia is dehydrated and dense, it will block proper lymphatic flow. This is why we occasionally add some fascial release techniques is our treatments
Of course, there are many other causes of congested lymphatic systems such as Chronic disease, medications, kidney or liver issues, scarring around primary lymph nodes, cancers, and many more. If Detox Lymphatic massage cannot safely treat these causes, you may be referred to another practitioner for more advanced lymphatic drainage.
