Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body. Lymphatic drainage massage techniques help reduce swelling and improve circulation. A properly functioning lymphatic system is essential for overall health. Since the immune system is directly linked to the lymphatic system, lymphatic drainage massage can improve immune system function, and increase antibody production. This will fight off infections like colds or flu and reduce inflammation.
There are several benefits to massaging your scars. Massage therapy can help to reduce scar appearance and formation. Massage will help to rebuild the collagen in the skin, breaking down the overly tough fibers. New tissue growth will also be stimulated. Massage will also help to increase the sensitivity in the tissue and also reduce pain and tightness in the scar.
Anxiety treated with alternative therapies are increasingly being considered for treating anxiety, and massage is proving effective. The Mayo Clinic reports a 60-minute massage can lower cortisol, the stress hormone, by up to 30 % after just one session. In addition to its calming effects, massage therapy can help alleviate the symptoms of anxiety, including muscle tension and sleep disturbances.
Massage therapy for insomnia has been shown to increase serotonin levels which increasing the production of anti-pain chemicals and foster a sense of deep well-being. Ultimately, massage is very effective at increasing deep sleep.
Sissel has been my Massage Therapist for 15 years, I come every week, and if I miss a week, my body can feel it. She is kind, knowledgeable, and has magic hands. I appreciate her knowledge, always taking extra education to give her clients more. Whatever problems I have had these years, she usually can take care off. I am 84 years old, and not taking any medication, and Sissel is part of me being a young 84 years old. KM - Saline - MI
Sissel brings peace and calmness into my life. She really helps me put things into perspective at a time when that is not always easy to have. I have used her services for massage and scar therapy, and my body and mind have greatly benefited from both. I've had massages before and have never felt like they were an integral part of my self-care, they were just something to do. I can now literally feel the difference when I go too long without having her take care of my trouble-spots. Which reminds me...I have to schedule an appointment now! MJG -Ann Arbor, MI
After struggling with Fibromyalgia for years with pain and stiffness, Sissel was able to get me back to a place where I could enjoy life again. I come regularly and change between Therapeutic Massage and LDM. My depression because of living with constant pain and mobility issues, is now also much better, and I can get out and enjoy Life. I have also reduced my medication. TB, Belleville - MI
