There are number of therapies that can be used to restore and help promote lymphatic drainage
• Exercises. Involve mild muscular contractions combined with focused breathing.
• Nutrition. Drinking plenty of fresh water, juices, healthy diet, vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements.
• Skin brushing has been found to stimulate circulation to the skin and also to help stimulate lymph flow. Cold and warm water mix after showering can stimulate the lymphatic system although.
• Lymph drainage massage can restore lymph circulation and drain the tissue fluid that has accumulated foreign bodies including bacteria, cancer cells and viruses.
Lymphatic massage/Cellulite Treatment
Lymphatic massage or lymphatic drainage therapy is a very gentle form of massage that stimulates your immune system and promotes fluid movement in your lymphatic system. It pulls on microscopic fibers connected to openings in lymph capillaries. Pulling on those fibers widens the openings and allows fluid from your tissues to be absorbed into the lymphatics.
Lymph capillaries contract in response to changes in tissue pressure. As tissue fluid is absorbed into the initial lymphatics, the walls of the lymphatics sense the increased pressure and they contract, squeezing fluid forward to the next section.
TriPollar devise heats your skin and the therapist applies the devise in the direction of natural lymph flow so your body can easily and effectively drain excessive fluids and waste.
The device mimics how the lymph vessels work by using matching pressure and rhythm, it stimulates the lymphatic pump to contract more often and in a more regular rhythm.
Lymph vessels contain valves that prevent back flow. When tissue fluid is absorbed into lymph vessels, it can only go one way: toward the lymph nodes.
Note tight muscles prevent lymph flow inside the muscles themselves. Lymph circulation inside muscles depends on the alternate tightening and relaxation of muscle fibers. If the muscles stay tight all the time, the lymphatics are compressed and there is no lymph movement. Relaxing the muscles with massage takes pressure off the lymphatics so they can absorb tissue fluid.
Other therapy benefits
Reduce unwanted fat by increasing lymph system function, as removal of fat via the lymph fluid is one of its jobs. When stagnated lymph fluids are stimulated through lymph drainage therapy, the body will generate new lymphocytes to reinforce your immune response. Hormone demonstrated to be affected by massage in the study was cortisol. Released by the adrenal gland, cortisol gives you that "adrenaline rush" you experience at stressful moments. Useful as an occasional stimulant to provide the body with extra "resources" in times of danger or great stress, cortisol can be deadly when released into the body continuously by the day to day stresses of modern living.
Excess cortisol can lead to adrenal fatigue, high blood pressure, insomnia, poor immune function, and weight gain — particularly an increase in abdominal fat. It is also implicated as a contributing factor in fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and arthritis. Since cortisol levels tend to be highest in the morning, that might be a good time of day to schedule your massage appointment.
