Lymphatic Massage (Lymphedema Therapy)
As a complete decongestive therapy, Lymphedema Treatment effectively removes excess protein-rich fluids from affected areas
Lymphedema is essentially the collection of excess fluid in areas such as extremities, causing an edema (swelling effect) that can be both uncomfortable and keeps the area from being fed oxygen and nutrients. Given that the arms or legs are mostly affected, in some cases the genital area, the neck, or other areas of the body can also suffer from lymphedema.
The swelling caused by lymphedema usually follows earlier afflictions, such as damage in the lymph vessels and on the lymph nodes. This can also lead to fibrosis (scar tissue), which prevents lymphatic fluid from being moved from the affected area, as well as celulitis or lymphangitis.
Beja Body offers lymphatic massage as an effective lymphedema treatment to help you take control of this condition, allowing your body to heal and prevent further complications. In fact, lymphedema is attributed to creating the conditions necessary for bacterial growth—often leading to infections and complications that can be prevented with proactive treatment.
Lymphedema treatment begins with a precise and effective lymphatic massage on the affected area, which allows the unblocking of lymph nodes. By using light massaging pressure towards the lymphatic system structure, our lymphatic massage can help drain the fluid that causes the edema under the skin, thus reducing inflammation and helping you recover from the discomfort.
