70% of the lymphatic system lies superficially, just under the surface of the skin. So if too much pressure is applied you can collapse the wall of the vessel and diminish the flow of lymph. This is what makes vacuum therapy an outstanding method for draining lymph manually.
Lymphatic drainage at The Massage Room involves the use of the modern cupping technology of vacuum therapy, also known as Medicupping. This advanced bodywork machine creates a consistent pumping, which mimics the natural rhythm of the lymphatic system’s movement.
The combination of vacuum therapy and Heather’s extensive knowledge of the lymphatic system come together to produce real results that are highly effective.
Increasing lymphatic output increases the immune system’s ability to detoxify the body and respond in a timely manner to all the stress put onto it.
Cumulative treatments will produce the best long term outcome but results are noticable even after your first session of this superior treatment.
Its important to understand how to effectively move lymph, and when NOT to work on this delicate system.
