LYMPHATIC MASSAGE increases the flow in, and thereby improves the function of, the lymphatic system. In addition, this massage is very relaxing.

The movement of lymph fluid can become sluggish or congested, allowing toxins to accumulate in the body. Symptoms may include aches and pains, soreness, low energy, edema, susceptibility to colds and other infections, skin problems, migraine headaches, constipation, sinusitis, and chronic fatigue or pain.

Regular lymphatic massage keeps lymph fluid moving, removing toxins and stimulating the immune system. You feel better and stay healthier. In addition, you will probably experience other benefits, such as total relaxation, tension and stress release, improved skin elasticity and tone, reduced fluid retention, improved stamina and energy, increased flexibility, improved muscle tone, and increased circulation. It can help repair torn muscles and ease soreness or stiffness in painful muscles. It is especially helpful in cases of edema, after surgeries or sports injuries, and for scar healing.

The lymph system is vital to your health. Lymph vessels make up an intricate network that is found in all parts of the body except the central nervous system. The vessels contain lymph fluid, which bathes all cells in the body and provides a constant exchange of material within the cells. It delivers nutrients to the cells and carries wastes produced by cellular metabolism, toxins, and other large particles to the lymph nodes. Here waste products, infectious substances, toxins, etc. are literally destroyed by lymphocytes, which also produce antibodies to defend the body against infections.
The lymph system, lacking a heart-like organ to pump the fluid, depends on tiny muscle contractions to move it forward throughout the system to eventually drain into two large veins at the base of the neck. Here it moves into the venous system, where waste and excess fluid is removed from the blood by the kidneys and then eliminated from the body.

"I swear by Joyce's lymphatic drainage massages. They're not only relaxing, but I've found them to be great preventative medicine. No colds in two years of regular appointments!"

"A massage with Joyce is a real treat for your senses!  She uses the highest quality essential oils, and the experience is soothing and rejuvenating.  She encourages her clients to live healthy lifestyles, and is knowledgeable and so friendly."  J.F./Cary

NEW!!! KANSA WAND I’m excited to introduce a new service to compliment your massage experience! It’s called a “Kansa Wand,” a healing and beauty treatment used for centuries in Ayurvedic treatments. It’s soothing and relaxing, and it helps move the lymph fluid.
The wellness wand has a smooth, round-shaped end made of a very pure metal alloy of copper and tin. This ancient blend was first discovered about 5000 years ago and is considered a “healing metal” in Ayurveda, India’s traditional holistic healing system.
As an add-on service to a standard lymphatic massage, I will use the wand on your head, face, and neck. It’s also a wonderful addition to the Rejuvenation lymphatic massage, which includes a hydrating facial mask. Or, if you prefer, schedule the Kansa Wand service as a 30-minute treatment by itself.
Reported benefits include:

  • Relaxation - calms the nervous system
  • Eases stress
  • Revitalizes face, neck and shoulder muscles
  • Reduces face and head pain and tension
  • Reduces acidity and detoxifies
  • Gently lifts facial skin
  • Improves sleep
  • Unifies body, mind and spirit
