Lymphatic Massage—Open Up the Pathways
Lymphatic Massage focuses on encouraging the lymph system to function optimally. The lymph system is part of the circulatory system and is made up of many lymphatic vessels which are networked together creating pathways that ultimately carry lymph fluid towards the heart. The lymph system is an important part of the immune system and when the fluid doesn’t flow freely it can contribute to many kinds of health problems.
A lymphatic massage includes gentle strokes along the lymphatic pathways which stimulates lymph fluid to flow and breaks up stagnation. These techniques may be combined with massage technique to create balance and healing to the whole body. See below to add a cocoon wrap to a lymphatic massage!
Cupping & Cocoon—Lymphatic at a Whole New Level
The Lymphatic Cupping Massage with Aromatherapy Cocoon Wrap takes massage to a whole new level! A favorite among patients with endometriosis, cancer, and other immune and cell related conditions, this massage and wrap is designed to help the body in the daily battle it fights against disease. One of the ways it does this is by flushing out waste and toxins which helps to boost the immune system. It is also the perfect way to de-stress from a hard week and give your body some much needed pampering and healing.
For the first 50 minutes the therapist does a gentle lymphatic cup massage. After that the patients is rubbed with oils mixed specifically for their particular needs then wrapped in a “cocoon” and allowed to rest for a half hour while the oils work their magic. It is recommended that the patient does not shower or bathe until the next day while the oils continue to work.
