Lymph Drainage Therapy Benefits Part 2: Sports Injuries and Performance

With the weather warming up and summer on its way, more people will be outside enjoying the weather. That also means more outside sports, running, and walking. Which can lead to strains, sprains, and other injuries.


When provided by a trained massage practitioner, Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT) can significantly reduce the healing of common sports injuries and improve overall athletic performance.





Lymph Drainage Therapy and Sprains and Strains

A sprained ligament or strained muscle can be a pain—literally and figuratively.

Many athletes do not receive the right kind of treatment or allow enough healing time, which can result in re-injury.




Lymph Drainage Therapy and Athletic Performance

When Allyssa started her training in Lymph Drainage Therapy a few years ago, she was also competing in short-distance triathlons. Receiving treatments during her training showed her firsthand how beneficial the work is for athletic performance.




Getting a treatment before a race or a workout helps reduce inflammation and excess fluid.

Many of our clients and Alyssa, herself, have benefitted from LDT with a sense of lightness and agility during activity.

Because LDT gets rid of excess waste in the muscles, there is much less likelihood of cramping as well.




How Lymph Drainage Therapy Works

Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT), or Manual Lymphatic Drainage is the process of using gentle manual sequenced movements to help the Lymph system drain its stores of waste out of your body.

LDT also helps to reduce tension on your body’s fascia, the fibrous tissue that encloses your muscles and organs.
