Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body.
The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the bodily tissues. Some health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up. Lymphatic drainage massages can benefit people with lymphedema, fibromyalgia, and other conditions.
People should not have a lymphatic massage if they have congestive heart failure, blood clots, kidney problems, infections, or circulation problems. If a person has any medical conditions, they should talk to a doctor before trying a lymphatic massage.
The science behind why this massage works is fairly simple. Stroking the areas of the body that process the lymph fluid, and the lymph nodes, causes the fluid to drain. This massage procedure works well and has been demonstrated to show positive results after only a couple of massage treatments! However, most patients need 4 to 6 LDM treatments to remove most of the excess fluid. Patients can expect some relief from swelling after the 1st treatment.
Excellent for post liposuction, smart lipo, 360 lipo, bbl, pre-surgical option to soft adipose tissue for better surgical outcome.
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ)
With the stress that most of us deal with daily, jaw pain issues are becoming very common. Most people don’t even realize they are clenching or grinding their teeth and many even do this in their sleep. It is often a dentist or dental hygienist that calls our attention to that fact that we are grinding teeth, or when headaches appear more often.
The syndrome or dysfunction (TMD) can be caused by a misalignment of the jaw, tooth issues, stress, whiplash, trauma, neck misalignment, or inflammation. Some symptoms might include jaw pain or popping in or around the joint, headaches, toothaches, earaches, dizziness, nausea, sinus pressure or pain, clenching, reduced ability to open or close the mouth, or pain when biting or chewing.
Physicians or dentists will often do exams and/or X-rays to diagnose the problem and determine the course of treatment. Massage therapy can help to realign problem areas, relieve the muscle tension, and relax the muscles by working trigger point areas around the jaw and neck. It is possible to significantly reduce the pain and discomfort associated with jaw pain through massage.
