Lymphatic drainage: everything you need to know

Lymphatic drainage is not only an excellent massage against cellulite. In fact it produces multiple benefits for the health of the entire organism, restoring the correct functioning of the lymphatic system. For example it eliminates toxins and stimulates the immune and nervous system.

Two thirds of our body’s fluid is made up of water. For this reason it is important to understand the mobilization of fluid in our body.

What is the lymphatic system?

A few centuries ago, in the time of Hippocrates and Aristotle, there was talk of the existence of a human body of conduits carrying a white liquid. This liquid was attributed the name of white blood.

The lymphatic system is an open system and parallel to the circulatory system of the blood formed by: lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, lymph. In particular its function is to reabsorb substances and components that in the circulatory system can not pass. For example fat or liposoluble and large molecules.

The lymph is the result of the collection of substances and waste. At the beginning it is white and as it picks up substances and fats it turns yellow.

The lymph also has immune function. In fact in the lymph are white blood cells called lymphocytes and are responsible for cleaning and purifying waste. In the lymph nodes there are the large purifiers where the T lymphocytes and B lymphocytes are located. Here foreign particles are eliminated thanks to phagocytosis or cytokines that are responsible for destroying pathogens.

How a lymphatic drainage massage is performed

Although people are getting increasingly fashionable, they do not know how this massage works.

The technique of manual lymphatic drainage begins by opening the “drainage” zone, that is, by draining the neck and terminus lymph nodes.

The effect is to remove the drain plug so that the lymph can flow more quickly and easily into the bloodstream. Thus, liquids and molecules that are not necessary go through the body’s filters and are eliminated.

After draining the area of ​​the neck goes to the affected area or where there is fluid retention. Consequently, it will flow more easily.

This massage activates the lymphatic system during 2 or 3 days, eliminating and purifying everything that the body does not need.

It is performed with a soft and light touch on the surface of the skin, mobilizing the superficial lymph of the skin at specific points to take it to the main areas of “drainage”. This lymph ends up coming back to the blood by “terminus“, the end of the path of the lymphatic system and where it goes back into the bloodstream.

Lymphatic drainage also favors recovery after surgery. In a few words it drains the bruises and helps them to disappear quickly. It also helps reduce inflammation easily for quick recovery.

Cosmetic surgeons almost always recommend it, in treatments such as liposuction, liposculpture, facial cosmetic surgery and others.

A little history

The original technique was described by Dr. Vodder in the 30s. Dr. Vodder addressed pathologies related to the respiratory system. After seeing the improvements and rapidity with which his patients evolved after receiving this treatment, he applied it to other parts of the body.

Dr. Vodder proved the important benefits that the DLM produced on the body, especially in the immune and nervous system. At the same time he observed the effect on the tissues of the body helping to detoxify it. Thanks to him now we have one of the best and most effective techniques to heal the body.

Cellulite treatment, be ready for the summer

The cellulite treatment stops imperfections of the skin.

From effective anti-cellulite massages to stimulate the lymphatic system, to the most intense ones for circulation.

What is cellulite?
It all starts with the appearance of small orange peel signs. A bit of water retention and some swelling.

However, the edematous states of the skin, if not treated quickly, can quickly become cellulite. Cellulitis is a real pathology that affects mainly women, but also men.

In fact, cellulite is an inflammation of the connective tissue, a symptom of hormonal problems, poor diet, poor movement. Consequently, tissues are not oxygenated and the circulation is not very dynamic. Thus the skin acquires a chopped appearance, similar to a mattress, with hardening and sclerotization.

 

Showing body, for those who suffer from cellulite, can be really difficult.

 

Cellulite treatment tips

To get rid of cellulite it is fundamental to rethink your life habits.

However, to obtain faster results, it is advisable to undergo cellulite treatments performed by beauty experts.

Thanks to the different manipulation techniques in the affected areas, the connective layer of the skin is activated again. It regenerates, oxygenates and manages to drain fluids. As a result, the toxins that cause inflammation are more easily eliminated.

The anti-cellulite massage techniques are different: some act on the most superficial layer of the skin activating the lymphatic system. Others instead stimulate the connective tissue, acting right where the problem lies. However, others are even more intense and energetic. The latter especially reactivate blood circulation (Deep Tissue massage).

Main techniques of massage against cellulite

Lymphatic drainage massage: one of the most effective anti-cellulite treatments to eliminate swelling.

Although every time it is becoming fashionable people do not know the way of acting of this massage.

To begin, it is essential that a lymphotherapist or certified esthetician do it. In fact, although this massage is located in an area of ​​the body, it stimulates the entire lymphatic system, favoring the elimination of fluids and toxins. At the same time it produces important benefits in the immune and nervous system.

Cellulite is often the result of severe fluid stagnation.

Thanks to the lymphatic drainage massage it is possible to solve this problem quickly, freeing the occluded lymph nodes and facilitating the flow of liquids to the main nodes.

How to understand if the session of lymphatic drainage has been effective?


Simple: if after a while the treatment ends, you feel a strong need to urinate, the result is positive. In fact, the urge to urinate is synonymous with an active and living drainage system, which expels liquids and prevents stagnation.

Deep tissue massage as a treatment for severe cellulite

When there is a lot of swelling and the skin has assumed the characteristic aspect of orange peel, it is time to intervene with a shock strategy.

In addition to the lymphatic drainage massage, useful to facilitate the expulsion of fluids from the body, it is necessary to stimulate the connective tissue with more vigorous and intense anti-cellulite treatments.

Thanks to the pressure of the fingers and knuckles in the affected areas, the Deep tissue massage reactivates the tissues and dissolves the cellulite blocks. Metabolism also benefits enormously, regaining momentum and, therefore, burning more fat.

The movement of this anti-cellulite massage is deep, and alternates slower moments to more intense moments. Thanks to this massage, the cells of the deeper layers of the skin will be better oxygenated. The result? Production of collagen will increase, helping the tissues to become compact and elastic. The metabolism, restored, will burn more fat in the body.
