    What is Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage ?

    Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage, also known as Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) or High Frequency Treatment (HFT), stimulates the lymphatic system to release toxins and improve overall health.

    It was created by Dr. Emil and Mrs. Johanna Vodder in 1919. They noticed that people suffering from swollen legs often had a large number of diseased organs. Some of these patients had their swollen legs disappear after being massaged at specific points on the body, areas where they believed the lymph nodes drained. Emil discovered that he could manipulate this phenomenon in what is now commonly known as the Vodder Technique.

    Emil and Johanna Vodder taught the technique to physicians who found it useful in their daily practice. Today, there are many schools that teach Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage, and there is even a certifying body: The Lymphology Association of Manual and Physiological Therapists (LAMPT).

    The goal is to give an understanding of exactly what Lymphatic Drainage does. This is your opportunity to gain knowledge that can help you decide if you should see a licensed HPT practitioner in Long Island.

    Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM) is a type of bodywork that can help remove waste and toxins from your lymphatic system, promote healthy lymph fluid flow, reduce pain and inflammation , and decrease scar tissue.

    How Does Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage  Work?

    Lymph is a fluid that contains protein molecules, water, electrolytes and waste. It is also called lymphatic fluid or interstitial fluid (ILF). The function of the lymphatic system is to collect excess fluid from the tissues and return it to the blood. Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage enhances this process by helping the body remove toxins and waste products from the tissues, which reduces swelling and can relieve pain. For example, LDM can reduce lymphedema, commonly called “elephant skin,” which often occurs after the removal of breast cancer tumors or treatment for Hodgkin’s disease.

    Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a system of manual movement of lymph to improve the flow of lymph through the bloodstream. It was first developed by Dr. Emil and Lillian Vodder in Germany over eighty years ago. The techniques are designed to eliminate chronic fluid accumulation that causes swelling (edema) and weight gain (ascites). It also helps return functional blood cells, plasma proteins, enzymes, antibodies, amino acids, lipids and other nutrients to the circulation. The system consists of several movements that drain the entire body, including the face, scalp and neck.

    In the human body there are more than 600 lymph nodes that run through the body and form a network of blood vessels. The function of these nodes is to drain bacteria, dead blood cells and other particles that do not belong to the circulatory system. When this system is blocked, increased inflammation occurs in some parts of the body, as they cannot get rid of waste products. In addition to cellulite or inflammation, other problems may develop such as:

    – Chronic fatigue syndrome – Weight loss and food sensitivities – Heart disease and sleep disorders – Arthritis – Frequent allergies and colds Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a gentle but powerful treatment that unblocks these congested areas. 

    Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage (LDM) can also be called body fluid drainage; it is a light, mobile and easy-to-do type of Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage that helps the body drain excess, unneeded fluids. In this type of massage, oils are used as a way to improve the flow in the blood system that will eventually help rid the body of harmful toxins. This process is carried out by lightly moving or shaking the arms and legs after being rubbed with oil to achieve a gentle type of Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage. People who have undergone this treatment report feeling much lighter and relaxed after each session.

    Benefits of Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage

    The lymphatic system affects the immune system and is also responsible for removing toxins from the cells. The main purpose of the lymphatic system is to fight toxins that invade the body, but it can become congested due to poor diet, stress, environmental factors, etc. This causes problems such as swelling, inflammation in some areas of the body (especially in the legs), respiratory problems and cellulite.

    Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage aims to open the lymph nodes throughout the body so that they can properly eliminate toxic substances. Lymphatic drainage therapy benefits Long Island residents who are looking for ways to stay healthy by reducing swelling and eliminating potential health risks associated with congestion in this important system of the body.

    The lymphatic system is not as well known as other body systems; however, it serves an important function for those who receive regular massage. Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage has been used for years to help people recover from surgery or cancer treatments. 

    Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage, also known as lymphatic drainage therapy, is a unique method of gentle manual Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage that stimulates the lymphatic system and improves circulation. Lymphatic channels drain excess fluids from tissues from head to toe, filtering these fluids through lymph nodes that remove bacteria and foreign substances before returning the fluid to circulation. By stimulating this network of vessels, Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage can help reduce swelling and edema in inflamed areas such as the arms and legs. In addition to reducing water retention in soft tissues, it reduces vascular pressure and promotes normal immune cell function.

    The benefits of Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage – Releases toxins from body tissues – Enhances the elimination process – Purifies the blood.

    The network of lymphatic vessels also transports fats and chyle during digestion into the bloodstream. When the lymphatic vessels become blocked or damaged, waste products cannot flow freely through the lymphatic system, resulting in disease, infection, pain and stress in different parts of the body. Healthy Lymphatic Drainage (LD) stimulates this vital cleansing process while promoting the overall health and wellness of Long Island residents. Scientific studies have shown that Long Island Lymphatic Drainage Massage helps increase metabolic activity which accelerates lymphatic drainage bringing anti-stress benefits that are immediate.
