Unless there is edema and/or scar tissue elsewhere in the body that needs attention, it is very useful to give Lymphatic Facial Massage to the face and neck
The head and neck are rich with lymph nodes because disease-causing organisms easily enter the body via the mouth, nose, and eyes. Lymphatic Facial Massage stimulates the circulation of lymph and lymphocytes through the facial and cervical lymph nodes.
Lymphatic Facial Massage to the face and neck very effectively reduces bruising and edema following injury or surgery, including dental and cosmetic surgery
Facial edema can be due to allergies, hormones, medication, fatigue, illness, infection, injury, excess salt in the diet, weeping, and so on.
Lymphatic Facial Massage stimulates a sluggish immune system to more activity by increasing the circulation of lymph and lymphocytes. Those with this type of system may benefit from a series of Lymph Drainage massage sessions at the beginning of cold and flu season. You can recommend at least three sessions in one week, although up to seven sessions in one week would be more beneficial.
Similarly, Lymphatic Facial Massage benefits clients with low energy. Low energy can result from stress, overwork, illness, or depression, any of which can depress the immune system. Stimulating immune circulation will help a fatigued client resist illness. In contrast, clients with high energy levels who overwork and over exercise are prone to illness and injuries because they do not rest. Lymph Drainage Massage is deeply relaxing and may be used to help speed healing, as well as give overworked clients some rest.
Although Lymphatic Facial Massage is focused on superficial tissues, the muscles underneath also respond to the light, skillfully directed touch and will relax. Pain due to muscle tension will reduce or disappear. For instance, Lymphatic Drainage massage can help relax the muscles that cause muscle-tension headaches. When facial muscles relax, the facial expression softens and relaxes, which contributes to a more youthful and healthy look.
