Energizing Massage

An energizing (or detox) massage will work primarily on your outer and deeper skin tissues and muscle tissues and focuses on stimulating blood and lymph flow.

There is less variety in movements, and movements are repeated more constantly and in a fast,energizing manner.
If you feel a lack of energy, depressed, heavy, slow, sad, this will give you the needed reboot. For this session ideally I will apply lemongrass or other citrus- energizing/uplifting essential oils. This will also be the ideal technique to choose to accompany a detox or weight-loss program or to prepare for sport to warm-up muscles prior to a long workout or competition.
Please note that this session is not recommended, if you are looking for a calming/ soothing kind of touch.
What you should know about your lymphatic and circulatory system.
The circulatory system is primarily responsible for moving nutrients / waste products and oxygen / carbon dioxide through the body.
The lymphatic system is primarily responsible for your immune defense and to keep body fluids in balance.
However, both the blood and the lymph systems carry out both jobs, but to different extents. In an energizing massage, the blood and the lymph system are stimulated through strong energetic movements. This will result in faster and thorough exchanges between cells, the lymph and the blood stream. Swelling will decrease, the cells will receive more oxygen and nutrients and release waste products. Tissues will become more flexible in the process.
mproving the blood and lymph flow will also have an impact on your skin texture. Regular sessions can decrease edema and fat layers beneath the skin (if the right nutrition is maintained at the same time).
For some conditions this treatment can have a negative impact, which is why it is so important to have a conversation with your massage practitioner before your session.
If, for example, you have inflammation, it would be harmful to transport the lymph fluid away from the inflammation and spread into the body. Likewise in the case of a cancer diagnosis you would not want cells to be moved around your whole organism. If you have any doubt about any negative side effects, please consult your generalist prior to your appointment to clarify any questions.
