Lymphatic Drainage Massage in Winnipeg

massaging armIn addition to chiropractic care, n8 Chiropractic & Massage Therapy is home to Lymphatic Drainage Massage to promote healing and overall health.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a specialized form of massage therapy designed to stimulate the lymphatic system and ignite the natural drainage of lymph fluid from the body’s tissues. Ultimately, this allows for better immune function, waste removal, and fluid balance.

Why Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

Lymphatic Drainage Massage involves light pressure and gentle, rhythmic strokes to encourage the movement of lymph fluid without compressing the lymphatic vessels. It relies on specific sequences of pressure that follow the natural direction of lymphatic flow in the body.

Unlike other massage therapies, Lymphatic Drainage Massage often requires manual lymphatic mapping to identify and target areas of lymphatic congestion or blockage—making this approach to care precise and patient centered.

Benefits of Care

Lymphatic Drainage Massage has been known to reduce swelling, fluid retention, and edema by detoxing body tissues and enhancing immune function. It is also gentle and relaxing, allowing for a sense of calm while moving closer to wellness.

Post-Massage Recommendations

After your Lymphatic Drainage massage, it is important to take certain precautions and follow specific recommendations to support the body’s natural detoxification process, including:

Hydration: It is important to drink plenty of water after your appointment to flush out toxins and waste products released during your massage.

Light Activity: We suggest engaging in only light physical activity, such as walking or stretching, to encourage lymphatic circulation and prevent stagnation of lymph fluid.

Avoiding Heat and Sun Exposure: Our practice recommends avoiding hot baths, saunas, and prolonged sun exposure after your massage, as heat can dilate blood vessels and worsen inflammation.

Elevation: If swelling or edema is a concern, it is crucial that you elevate your legs while resting to reduce inflammation in the extremities.
