Chiropractic Erie CO Lymphatic Drainage

By Kathleen Lawless

Lymphatic drainage massage in Erie CO is known for its light pressure to help restore a healthy immune system and eliminate waste products and toxins. This gentle form of massage helps reduce swelling caused by lymphedema, which is a condition that occurs when excess lymphatic fluids collect in the body, usually in the arms and legs. It uses light pressure and gentle rhythmic movements to encourage lymph drainage, whereas regular massages focus on the muscles and uses deeper pressure.

Lymph is the fluid that flows through the lymphatic system, a system comprised of lymph vessels and lymph nodes. When the lymphatic system is disrupted, lymph collects in the arms and legs, leading to swelling and a lot of discomfort. Lymph fluid also contains white blood cells and other cells to build up the immune system and fight infection. When lymph fluid begins pooling, this part of our immune system also doesn't function as well.

There are hundreds of lymph nodes throughout the body, but they are mainly concentrated in the neck, armpits, chest, belly and groin area. Some people may notice these swell from time to time. This typically happens when the body is dealing with an infection. However, if something disrupts the flow of lymph fluid, you will start noticing the swelling become more widespread.

  • Decrease stress
