Amy works Holistically which means treating you as a whole. Part of her expertise is detoxing the tissues of your body to help you recover, gain more energy, feel less heavy and look and feel loads better!

What’s even better is you can see and feel the massage working! Expect to feel lighter, look slimmer and feel the waste fluid drain away during your Lymph Drainage Massage!

What is a Detox?

A detox is literally removing toxins from your system.

The Detox Massage we provide from our Sydney CBD clinic combines Manual Lymphatic Drainage with Acupressure, Deep Tissue and Reflexology.

Toxins‘ is a broad term used to describe anything that should not be present in the body – that usually gets there from consumption or absorption of unnatural food, drink or air, but can also contain the body’s natural waste such as cell debris from cell generation or disease fighting and chemicals left over from other normal bodily functions.

Your body fights to remove such toxins by itself via the immune system including the kidneys, spleen, thymus, liver, lungs and lymphatic system. These elements literally filter out the bad and put it in process to be removed from the body. The trouble is, sometimes this is too slow or over-loaded and we feel the effects of having a heavily tox filled body!

This could leave you feeling unwell, run down, tired and heavy as your energy may be limited because of slow normal function or your energy may

be being consumed with trying to rid your body of harmful substances, or the substances could already be doing you harm. Often you can see the harmful effects of toxins in dull skin, cellulite, swelling or bloating, dry eyes and dry mouth; often coupled with feelings of cold/flu like symptoms such as headaches, sore throat and runny nose.

You may even be used to feeling like this, with heavy legs and general lethargy, it’s likely you have a sluggish lymphatic system.

 

How does it work?

 

The Lymphatic System

The Lymphatic System

The Lymph system is an intricate network of channels where clear fluid travels collecting toxins and debris and filtering them through Lymph Nodes (behind the knee/elbow – in the groin – in the abdomen – under the arms). It had no pump but relies on movement and gravity to make its way around your body. It’s this fluid that gathers when we injure ourselves to provide a protective cushion. The same happens when we are ill – the fluid gathers to clear the disease as well as it can, yet the disease can remain present in the Lymphatic system for a while whilst it is filtered; which means you remain feeling unwell for longer. Often, after a serious illness, it can take a long period of time for the body to fully clear the disease and recover.

The same can be said after a heavy period of ‘binging’ on unhealthy tox rich products – being high in salt, sugar, alcohol, caffeine and other poisons we love to consume!

Lymph Drainage Massage works to speed up the body’s natural waste disposal using gentle but targeted techniques to push fluid through the lymph channels to their filters at the lymph nodes. It’s deeply relaxing and you can feel it working with a light trickle around your lymphatic nodes. You can see the reduction in puffiness or swelling in problem areas too!

Acupressure and Reflexology connect your body to the workings of your digestion and excretion systems which, when stimulated via pressure points around the body, will help the cleansing process of unwanted toxins.

A detox after Christmas indulgence is so important to clear your body and mind for a fresh and healthy new year! Book in for a Massage with Amy and kick start your healthy habits today!
