How can I increase my lymphatic flow?

Try rebounding (bouncing on a mini trampoline) or rope skipping, the up and down motion stimulates lymphatic fluid movement, forcing the flow to increase and flush through the system. Bounce or skip for about 15 minutes 3-4 times a week. Other possible benefits of rebounding and skipping - Weight loss - rebounding and skipping are metabolic supporting exercises, there're gentle cardio and strengthening.

Cellulite reduction - an improved functioning lymphatic system helps to remove stagnant lymph that can cause cellulite appearance on skin.

Improved balance and posture - when you're bouncing or skipping the core will engage to help you balance. Stronger core, stronger posture. - Christine Connell | Remedial Massage Therapist | Fertility Massage | Abdominal Massage | Lymphatic Drainage | Candling

 

Why is it recommended to have Lymphatic Drainage massage pre and post surgery?

Lymphatic Drainage is highly recommended both pre and post surgery. Many patients can experience discomfort, accumulation of fluid and bruising afterwards. During surgery lymph vessels are traumatized and the flow of lymphatic fluid is interrupted which can reduce healing. Decongesting the lymphatic system before and after surgery is important to help reduce soreness, swelling, bruising and increase healing. - Christine Connell | Remedial Massage Therapist | Fertility Massage | Abdominal Massage | Lymphatic Drainage | Candling

 

Cupping? What is that?

Cupping is thought to effect tissues from skin level to four inches deep, now that's definitely a deep tissue therapy for the body. The negative pressure of cupping helps body tissue release, activate the lymph system, clear blockages, activate and clear veins, arteries & capillaries, assist to clear stretch marks and best of all very relaxing. Rather than applying a deep downward massage pressure the muscles, connective tissue & skin is drawn up. For people who find a heavy pressure massage uncomfortable cupping is an alternative for relieving muscular pain & discomfort. - Christine Connell | Remedial Massage Therapist | Fertility Massage | Abdominal Massage | Lymphatic Drainage | Candling
