Lymphatic massage, aka manual lymphatic drainage, is a type of therapy used to detoxify the body and reduce lymphedema, which is swelling due to a blockage in the lymphatic system. This swelling sometimes happens after surgery, but it’s often also just a byproduct of chronic conditions. It can be super uncomfortable, which is where lymphatic massage comes in. This practice is a form of gentle massage that encourages the flow of lymphatic fluid. Through this therapy, puffiness is gently massaged away, which—let us tell you—brings a feeling of pure relief. Many Lymies turn to various massage therapies—including this one!—because they reduce the swelling and inflammation caused by those troublemaking Lyme bacteria. It may also help people with chronic pain, fibromyalgia, and chronic sinus and ear infections.

Hi! I would like some suggestions on a lymphatic massage in Jersey city, NJ or NYC. I want someone who is gentle - my health is really great right now but I’m finding that any stress I have is sitting in my neck especially by my glands. Having some head/neck aches. I have a feeling I need to move these fluids so any suggestions are appreciated.
