What It Is

The lymphatic system is a network of vessels, nodes, and organs that helps maintain fluid balance, remove waste products, and support immune function in the body. Lymphatics are the circulation of the immune system. The lymphatic system connects lymph nodes and circulates the byproducts of immune metabolism. 

How It Works

Lymphatic drainage massage is a gentle, therapeutic massage technique that targets the lymphatic system to enhance the removal of waste and toxins from the body, improve immune function, and maintain fluid balance.

Lymphatic drainage massages can be helpful in promoting lymphatic drainage by manually stimulating the lymphatic system. The massage technique often involves gentle, rhythmic strokes that help to move lymphatic fluid throughout the body. Clean Market's method incorporates various lymphatic therapies, including traditional Vodder Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), as well as more vigorous fascia release and contour strokes, vibration, cupping, and stretching. By improving lymphatic flow through a variety of techniques, the body is better able to eliminate toxins and waste, which can lead to improved health and overall well-being. With aging, loss of collagen, and accumulation of toxins, soft tissues lose elasticity and tightness develops in muscle and joints. MLD can slow this process and help maintain flexibility and freedom from pain.

The Gut Health Benefits 

When it comes to lymphatic drainage massage, there are numerous gut health benefits. Lymphatic drainage can support gut health by aiding in the removal of toxins, reducing inflammation, and promoting better digestion and nutrient absorption. More specifically, the lymphatic system is involved in the absorption of fats and fat-soluble nutrients from the digestive system. By improving lymphatic flow, lymphatic drainage massage may enhance nutrient absorption, ensuring that the body receives the necessary nutrients for optimal gut health. It also has an impact on balancing the gut microbiome, which plays a crucial role in gut health. Studies have suggested that lymphatic drainage massage may positively impact the gut microbiome by supporting immune function and reducing inflammation, which can contribute to a healthier balance of gut bacteria.

For anyone who is feeling bloated, lymphatic drainage can alleviate bloating by reducing fluid retention, stimulating lymphatic flow in the abdominal area, and supporting the removal of waste and toxins that contribute to bloating.
