Benefits of Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is conducted by a trained, certified medical professional (massage therapist) who massages the soft tissues of your body, the muscle, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and skin.

The massage therapist uses varying degrees of pressure and movement.

Massage is generally considered part of integrative medicine. Massage therapy along with standard treatment may be used for a wide range of medical conditions.

Generally, massage is delivered to improve the flow of blood and lymph (fluid in lymph glands, part of immune system), to reduce muscular tension or flaccidity, to affect the nervous system through stimulation or sedation, and to enhance tissue healing.

Massage benefits can: Help reduce stress - Lessen pain and muscle tension - Increase relaxation and Improve immune function

Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Therapy performed by Lynne Bask

The Lymphatic System is our body’s waste removal system and is a network of vessels similar to our circulatory system. Lymph vessels carry metabolic waste, toxins, infections and other foreign materials to Lymph nodes, where they are then destroyed.

Our Lymphatic system can easily become stagnant from dehydration, fatigue, stress, infection, etc and can result in water retention, cellulite, chronic pain, and fatty deposits. A sluggish lymphatic system can also be the cause of chronic sinusitis, swollen glands, ankles and eyes, upper respiratory problems, throat problems, colds and pneumonia.

The Lymphatic Drainage technique itself manually helps accelerate lymph flow and is very gentle, steady and harmonious, the pressure being very light. Prepare to feel VERY relaxed and perhaps a bit flushed!
