What Is The Lymphatic System?
The lymphatic system is your body's sewage system. It secretes lymph fluid that has leaked into the tissue and puts it back into the blood stream. Just like veins and capillaries of the blood circulation system, it has lymph vessels. These vessels are attached to lymph nodes that filter the lymph fluid in your body.
The responsibilities of the lymphatic system include:
Maintaining the fluid levels in your body
Reacting to bacteria in your body
Fighting with cancer cells
Reacting to cells that may cause disease and disorders in your body
Absorbing fats from the intestine
What Is Lymphatic Massage?
Lymphatic massage is helpful when your body has lymphedema. Lymphedema is a condition in which your lymphatic system does not remove the lymph fluid in the tissues. This causes swelling in the affected body parts such as your arms or legs.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a massage technique used to drain lymph fluid and has proven to be beneficial in reducing swelling due to lymphedema. Special massage techniques will be used by the specialist massage therapist to move lymph fluid and reduce swelling in your arms and legs.
How Is It Done?
The lymphatic massage is unlike a regular massage you get anywhere else. It involves special technique and hand movements that are beneficial in resolving lymphedema. The special technique involves the usage of gentle sweeping, gliding, compressing, and stretching motions.
These motions will be used by the lymphoedema therapist to stimulate the lymphatic system and allow lymph fluid to move freely without becoming trapped elsewhere in the body.
Types Of Lymphatic Massage
There are 4 main types of lymphatic massage commonly used by massage experts.
Vodder: Vodder is the foundational technique of lymphatic massage. In it, the massage expert uses several sweeping motions around the targeted area.
Foldi: Foldi is an extension technique of the Vodder technique. In it, the massage specialist uses an alteration of circular hand motions and moments of relaxation.
Casley-Smith: The massage specialist uses circulation motions with the sides and palms of the hands in the Casley-Smith type of lymphatic massage as well.
Leduc: Leduc first collects the lymph fluid through circular hand motions and then directs it to the lymphatic system for reabsorption.
