Lymphatic Massage in Chicago
Chicago is such a great town, but city living can produce all kinds of toxins in your body. Lymphatic massage can help release these toxins and is often used to build up your immune system, which is definitely needed during these harsh and seemingly endless Chicago winters!
If you’re feeling like you might get sick, a lymphatic massage may be just what you need.
What Is Lymphatic Massage?
Lymphatic massage involves using the fingers to gently tap and apply light pressure directly to your lymph nodes to promote the draining of toxins and built-up fluids from your body.
But wait—what are lymph nodes? Lymph nodes are small glands (or tiny nodes that store important chemicals your body needs) that act as a filter for bacteria, viruses, and other infectious materials. They’re part of your immune system and are located throughout your body, most notably on your neck, in your armpits, under your chin, and elsewhere.
A lymphatic massage is performed by a certified Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) therapist.
