The lymphatic system plays an essential role in the formation of antibodies, in inactivating bacteria, viruses, and harmful substances. Poor diet, stress or increased physical activity give our bodies a hard time. Painful swelling and oedema of lymph nodes accompanied by fatigue and exhaustion should definitely not be overlooked. The specialist team of Barna Medical knows how to help. Put yourself in the care of professionals.
What is lymphatic massage?
It is a gentle massage, where an experienced therapist uses special slight pressure on the skin. By using precise circular or spiral grips at a slow rate, he/she starts the flow of lymph and helps the entire body to get rid of waste, toxic substances and swelling.
How do lymphatic massages work?
This therapeutic method helps the body cope with increased load and activate the natural defence system. Lymphatic drainage removes waste products from tissues into the vessels of the lymphatic system and destroys germs in the lymph nodes. Direct contact with skin is effective in the treatment of cellulite and swelling. Hand massage may be also combined with mechanical lymphatic drainage.
When do the massages help?
Under the guidance of our experts, the massage before and after surgeries or after injuries proved to be a method that promotes healing of post-operative and post-traumatic oedema and haemorrhages. They are also suitable:
- against cellulite - they improve the tension of the skin and tissue, remove waste products of the metabolism
- against migraines via lymph drainage of the head and neck - may be caused by the pressure of accumulated lymph
- swellings - they relieve tissue tension
Massage prevents scarring and has an anti-inflammatory effect, it enhances the immune system and supports detoxification.
