Face & Neck Lymph Drainage Massage
Due to disease, injury, stress or surgery the body may be overwhelmed resulting in a condition called edema. Edema is an unusual accumulation of fluid in the soft tissues that can be temporary and mild or serious. In certain cases lymph drainage massage (LDM), may be used to help stimulate the body’s ability to reduce toxicity due to edema. LDM is a gentle, rhythmic style of massage that mimics the action of the lymphatic system. It is a very relaxing treatment utilizing precise rhythmic massage which mechanically moves fluid, like squeezing water through a tube. It also stimulates the lymph vessels to contract, starting the lymphatic pump so the lymph circulation will continue on its own.
Even without the presence of edema or swelling, LDM may benefit the circulatory system increasing oxygen flow and nutrients to skin cells. Charlie utilizes both manual (vodder) and mechanical (synergie) LDM techniques. Warm towels and quiet reflective music round out this relaxing treatment experience.
We offer massage treatments of the head, neck and décolleté only, although we happily will refer you to a practioner for full body treatments.
