Do you need a lymphatic drainage massage? Our osteopath Ali Frederick, DOMP, RMT is a lymphatic drainage specialist.
When training to become an osteopath, Ali developed an in-depth understanding of how lymphatic fluid and lymph vessels work throughout your body. This deeper understanding of the lymphatic system helps Ali identify the root cause of why your lymphatic system is under duress.
Ali blends both her understanding of the lymphatic system with osteopathic lymphatic drainage techniques. Combining both osteopathic techniques with lymph massage allows Ali to uncover the root cause of your lymph issues. This results in fewer appointments and a faster recovery time.
What is a lymphatic drainage massage?
Lymph drainage massage gently helps your lymphatic system maintain your body’s fluid balance, blood circulation, and immune mechanisms.
A lymph massage addresses symptoms like swelling, edema, brain fog, and bloating.
However, there is a wide range of other symptoms as well. A lymphatic massage can also help:
- Weakened immune system
- Chronic muscle pain that doesn’t improve with a regular massage or chiropractic treatments
- Pooling of fluid in your hands or feet after sitting or standing
- Feelings of fatigue or sluggishness
Do you need a lymph drainage massage?
The lymphatics are the fluid that manages the immune system. Lymph vessels throughout your body transport invading viruses and bacteria towards lymph nodes. Allowing your body to create antibodies, and develop an immune response to dangerous pathogens.
Your lymphatic system is incredibly important. If you severed one (just one!) of the deep lymph pathways in your leg you would be dead within 48 hours.
This is how important your lymphatic system is. And when it isn’t working properly you can suffer from a wide range of symptoms – from headaches, body aches and pains, to fatigue, to swelling.
If you’re struggling with a wide variety of symptoms that your doctor can’t seem to make sense of it’s time to schedule a lymphatic drainage massage!
The Flourish Framework for lymphatic drainage massage
Ali stands out from other therapists because she uses a four-step process in all of her lymphatic massage treatment protocols. The four steps to move you from fatigued to flourishing include:
1. Identify underlying nutritional issues that may be affecting your lymphatic system
If the food you eat is clogging your lymphatic system, it doesn’t matter how many lymphatic drainage massages you receive, you’re not going to get better.
2. Diagnose and remedy any lifestyle factors that slow your lymph
Even regular exercise/workout plans aren’t enough to move stuck lymph. You need targeted lifestyle advice to ensure the proper flow of your lymphatic system.
3. Create the perfect treatment frequency
Getting a lymphatic drainage massage once a year is not going to work. Nor is getting one 3x each week. Your condition is unique. Ali will provide a unique treatment plan tailored to your wellness goals.
4. Step-by-step instructions to maintain your lymphatic system at home
Ali does not want to create lifelong patients. She believes in giving patients control of their own health. She will teach you how to take care of your lymph at home. No appointments needed!
It’s not that any one of these steps has magical healing powers. It’s the synergy that occurs when each of these steps is implemented in the correct order at the appropriate time. That’s when you start to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Why you should consider a lymphatic drainage massage at Flourish Clinic
Care and mastery are what make the difference here at Flourish Clinic.
By the time any of our patients find us, they’ll – on average – have seen five other healthcare providers. Ranging from family docs and specialists to energy healers and shamans.
Those working in the conventional medical paradigm possess a great deal of mastery. But the care found in these clinics is a challenge to feel.
In alternative medicine, you’ll often come across healers who truly care about your well-being – sometimes to a fault. But all too often this high level of care is paired with not fully understanding your illness.
In order to overcome your illness, you need an abundance of care. And a practitioner with an expert level of understanding – or mastery – over your particular illness.
Care and Mastery are the foundation of the Flourish Framework. It’s these values that consistently gets us outstanding patient outcomes.
We’ve spent thousands of hours studying lymphatic massage.
