Lymph Drainage Therapist Applications

Both LymphWorks therapists have a real passion for helping people with swelling (edema), detox, inflammation, injury, surgery, cancer, illness and rehab by using Lymph Drainage Therapy.  Cancer therapy is a particular gift therapist CJ loves sharing with others after having close personal experience with the loss of loved ones to the disease. 

During a lymphatic session, flat hands are employed to simulate wave-like movements while applying very gentle and subtle pressure. The technique is unique from other lymph techniques such as Manual Lymph Drainage or Lymph Massage in that the therapist feels the lymph moving and creates a lymph drainage map (manual lymph mapping). This approach supports existing healthy pathways and reroutes the sick ones in addition to eliminating any scar, fascial, or skeletal blocks of the lymphatic flow. Charmingly named a high-drool-inducing therapy, it is gentle but very thorough at clearing and purifying on many levels.

Each individual therapist may incorporate energy healing, fascial, essential oils, and scar techniques into lymph sessions. As a part of after care for some clients, therapist CJ may also use kineseotaping. Interested clients can learn to tape themselves to continue the therapy in between sessions.  It is best to discuss your desires for integrated therapy prior to your lymph session.

Lymph Drainage really helps people clean out their filters, which improves function on surprising levels. Our clients have experienced many completely unanticipated improvements after a series or session. For example, a client might come in complaining of bloating but is ultimately able to go off their sleep aids. Or they come in for allergies, but end up having improved digestion and bowel movements. Sometimes clients come in for post-surgical swelling and end up looking younger or having better skin then they ever had before. The myriad of possibilities never fails to amaze.
