This is a gentle form of massage that uses a soft pumping technique to drain lymph nodes of water and trapped toxins. Sometimes our lymphatic systems become blocked, ultimately causing our entire system to become toxic, making us more susceptible to infection.
When our lymphatic system is stimulated by massage, toxins are eliminated so it works more efficiently, the immune system is boosted, and cells are supplied more readily with nutrients.
It can be beneficial for people who wish to reduce puffiness or swelling; those who lead sedentary lifestyles; and people that suffer regular colds and flu.
There are many different forms of massage. At Northside Therapies we offer the following:
- Remedial Massage
- Swedish Massage
- Hot Stone Massage
- Pregnancy Massage
