Massages designed specifically to enhance the flow within lymph vessels have been shown to have numerous positive health benefits. These treatments can be very effective before and after surgery, to help in healing wounds or chronic conditions, or as part of a beauty regimen. At Lasky Aesthetics in Beverly Hills we provide lymphatic drainage massages on the head and face to help with these conditions.
Lymph vessels play a big role in transporting waste, water, proteins, and other debris within the body. They remove these materials from connective tissues and carry them to the bloodstream, performing filtering and other functions along the way. At the sites where these vessels pass through lymph nodes, additional functions related to immunity are taken. The lymph vessel system is essentially a waste management system inside your body, managing the debris produced in daily living, as well as injury or illness, filtering out potentially harmful contaminants.
When an injury is sustained or surgery is performed on connective tissue, the lymph system is forced to work overtime to efficiently remove all the inflammatory products and toxins and pull these substances away from the affected site. The entire system is thrown into overdrive, and vessels can become congested, slowing lymph vessel functioning when it is needed most, and in turn curtailing recovery.
Also referred to as “manual lymph drainage,” a lymphatic drainage massage helps the overburdened lymph system by gently and repetitively pulling the skin in the direction of lymph flow. This accelerates the process of filtering and carrying away the various body waste products, stimulates increased immune system activity, and is deeply relaxing. By increasing blood flow to healthy tissues, the massage speeds healing and promotes regeneration. The body can heal itself, and lymphatic drainage massage is a technique that can help it work as it should.
Almost anyone can benefit from the therapeutic properties of our Los Angeles lymphatic drainage massage, but there are a few reasons why many health-conscious people seek this treatment:
While it is safe for the vast majority of patients, this type of massage should not be performed on anyone with malignant, untreated cancer, acute inflammation with infection, congestive heart failure, or thrombosis.
