Okay, let’s get nerdy. What is this lymphatic massage and what does it do? The Lymphatic Massage is a specialty type of massage that is not really discussed but has amazing healing qualities. Only the best and knowledgeable Licensed Massage Therapists are skilled enough in this style of massage. Believe it or not, there is a lot of science behind this massage due to its healing qualities. The lymphatic system is your body’s waste removal system that flows in its own, separate system, so as to not touch the good and healthy blood. The lymphatic picks up old, worn out cells, foreign pathogens, extra fluid, etc in the body to be destroyed and “thrown out” as needed. However, after surgery or during illness, this system gets inflamed and/or backed up. You can visibly see the lymphatic system struggling when you see swelling after surgery — such as when a cosmetic plastic surgeon completes a tummy tuck or liposuction. A sluggish, stopped up, and toxic lymphatic system means continued inflammation and pain, and a longer recovery time.
