Detoxification Lymphatic Massage
Detoxification Lymphatic Massage (DLM) is a very gentle treatment that enhances the movement of fluid through the lymph vessels in your body. There are rich beds of lymph capillaries immediately below the skin, so it isn't necessary to use deep pressure to affect the lymphatic system. In fact, light pressure results in more detoxification than heavy pressure. Because of this it is especially important to drink extra water after a Detoxification Lymphatic Massage.
The lymphatic system has a very important role to play in helping the body to detoxify. The lymphatic system assists the other body systems to perform their important functions. Detoxification Lymphatic Massage has the following effects:
Enhanced immunity - The lymphatic vessels lead to lymphatic nodes. When the fluid reaches these nodes, infectious organisms and toxins are destroyed by white blood cells. DLM increases the circulation, action and number of white blood cells, leading to increased protection from toxicity and disease. It also reduces stress, beneficial because chronic stress inhibits the immune system, making you more susceptible to illness. A consistent detoxification program has proven very effective in protecting us from infections.
Enhanced circulation - DLM reduces tissue swelling which can manifest as swollen joints, puffy eyes and edema in the lower legs. The lymph nodes filter the tissue fluid, removing impurities. The lymphatic system also works with the circulatory system to deliver nutrients, oxygen, and hormones from the blood to all the cells in our bodies.
Reduces stress - DLM is very calming and reduces mental and physical stress.
How It Works
The lymphatic system is one of our main lines of defense against disease. Lymph fluid begins with plasma fluid (Blood fluid) that is excreted from blood capillaries, carrying nutrients to your cells. The cells then use some of the fluid to help get rid of cell waste and toxins. This now-contaminated fluid is absorbed into microscopic lymph vessels and carried toward lymph nodes to be purified. After purification, lymph is carried through progressively larger lymph vessels until it is returned to the blood circulation system through large veins in your neck and upper chest. In a sense, the lymphatic system is the sewer system of the body, removing waste and purifying tissue fluids through lymph nodes.
Lifelong exposure to environmental pollutants contributes to the accumulation of toxins in the human body, including harmful microorganisms, microscopic particles like asbestos and harmful chemicals. Your body has its own natural method of detoxifying by means of the lymphatic system, but considering the amount of pollutants modern humans are exposed to, the lymphatic system can use some help!

Relaxing Swedish Massage
Swedish massage is a relaxing massage that uses long gentle stroking, kneading, and supported stretches. This massage helps to restore balance and bring the body back to normal by triggering the relaxation response. This “sigh of relief” response includes a slower heart rate, deeper breathing, more relax muscles, and better internal circulation and digestion.
Shiatsu / Acupressure
Shiatsu is a form of oriental massage in which the fingers are pressed on particular points of the body to ease aches, pains, tension, fatigue, and other symptoms.
Acupressure is a modified version of acupuncture that substitutes pressure for needle insertion. It is effective especially if repeated often with pressure held long enough. The hundreds of acupressure points in the human body are located on 12 paired and 2 unpaired centrally located meridians.
