Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

The Lymphatic System is our own gentle stream of life, the healing waters within, the immune system of our bodies. We may recognize it when our “glands” swell in response to colds or flu. These are actually the lymph nodes fighting off disease, destroying unhealthy bacteria and abnormal cells. There are over 600 nodes throughout the body and can be found in clusters- the main ones are in the armpit, the neck, the groin area and deep within the belly.

The lymph fluid (lymph) moves slowly, often against gravity, and does not have its own pump. It depends on the movement of the circulatory system, muscle contraction, deep breathing and peristalsis. With our sedentary lifestyles and environmental conditions it is no wonder our immune systems are challenged.

Lymphatic Therapy is gentle, non invasive and usually relaxing for the client. manual lymphatic therapy based on the Vodder method with the use of the Lymphstar Pro Fusion. This technology uses light and sound vibration that has been found to break up congestion and allows the lymph to move 4-8 times faster than manual lymphatic drainage alone.

Benefits of Massage

Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. Massage is an effective tool for managing this stress, which translates into:

  • Decreased anxiety.
  • Enhanced sleep quality.
  • Greater energy.
  • Improved concentration.
  • Increased circulation.
  • Reduced fatigue.

Massage can also help specifically address a number of health issues. Bodywork can

  • Alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion.
  • Assist with shorter, easier labor for expectant mothers & shorten maternity hospital stays.
  • Ease medication dependence.
  • Enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body's natural defense system.
  • Exercise and stretch weak, tight, or atrophied muscles.
  • Help athletes of any level prepare for, and recover from, strenuous workouts.
  • Improve the condition of the body's largest organ—the skin.
  • Increase joint flexibility.
  • Lessen depression and anxiety.
  • Promote tissue regeneration, reducing scar tissue and stretch marks.
  • Pump oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs, improving circulation.
  • Reduce post-surgery adhesions and swelling.
  • Reduce spasms and cramping.
  • Relax and soften injured, tired, and overused muscles.
  • Release endorphins—amino acids that work as the body's natural painkiller.
  • Relieve migraine pain.

Sometimes all one wants is a great massage. In this session you will receive a well-balanced and extremely enjoyable customized combination from my bodywork skillset: Swedish, deep tissue, prenatal, myofascial release, sports massage, ayurvedic, shiatsu, reflexology, and aromatherapy. I specialize in detailed neck and head work, paying particular attention to the intricate functionality of the spinal column and it’s relationship to the whole body. My touch is known to be loving, masterful, and comprehensive.

'Lymphatic therapy was recommended to me a few years ago. I had three wonderful closely spaced sessions with Angella. The experience was completely relaxing and has made a big
difference in my overall sense of wellbeing.
- L. Caldwell

“Angella is sublime in my eyes, as is her work. The problem I posed to her was significant. The orthopedic surgeon and physical therapist were stumped, and we needed help since I was quickly losing the functionality of my arm and hand. After a traumatic injury and a surgery to put my elbow back together, my entire arm was immobilized by swelling, and we were losing the opportunity to get it moving. My very smart physical therapist referred me to Angella, who then unlocked the secret. Her lymph drainage treatments quickly began reducing the swelling so that the physical therapy could take root. After a while she added massage to the treatments to help reduce the sympathetic muscle tension and pain that had spread to my shoulders, back and neck. I am forever grateful for Angella’s phenomenal hands and huge heart, and for the education I received in the power of lymph drainage massage. I will always come back for more now that I see how it works and how good she is at it. I also relish the smell of the bergamot oil!”
- Rae Amey

"I now know the value of lymphatic therapy, I would recommend this highly to everyone. Truly calming therapy, I sleep like a baby after my treatments!"
- Carla J
