Medical Lymphatic Drainage Massage


WHAT IS LYMPHATIC MASSAGE

Lymphatic Massage, also called Lymphatic Drainage Therapy or LDT is a very light touch massage lasting 60 minutes that encourages the body's natural detoxification system (lymphatic system) to move or pick up the pace and whisk away either the toxins that the body has been exposed to or the natural toxins overproduced by a body experiencing stress.  The lymphatic system contains specialized cells throughout the body that are specifically designed to obliterate pathogens and then filter the waste into the body's natural elimination system.  Illness and harsh medical treatments can compromise the effectiveness of the lymphatic system and can actually cause obstruction of the lymph vessels leading to an impairment of  the normal flow of lymph; therefore Lymphatic Massage can be of great assistance.  Please read below for information on special conditions that Lymphatic Massage can treat.  Feel free to phone YAO and discuss if you have any further questions.
