Ginger oil for lymphedema
Ginger Oil for lymphatic drainage massage is a very gentle massage that uses stationary circles over the lymph nodes and superficial lymph vessels to improve the lymph vessel activity,
increases reabsorption of protein-rich fluid in the capillary bed, promotes relaxation and has an analgesic effect.
If the massage is too firm the tiny lymph vessels in the skin are squashed and lymph is unable to flow.
When lymphatic drainage is complete, the affected limb is bandaged with short stretch bandages.
Short stretch bandages have an active as well as a resting phase, so they do not apply continuous pressure.
The resting phase is important to healthy circulation.
Short stretch bandages
Bandaging is a vital part of treatment. Once the area has been treated with lymphatic drainage, some fluid has been moved out and swelling is somewhat reduced.
Bandages apply pressure on the tissue to help prevent further fluid accumulation and to aid in the re-absorption of existing fluid.
These bandages are left on at a minimum overnight and ideally until the next visit to the therapist.
If possible, clients learn to bandage themselves and can reapply the bandages after a shower or bath.
If left un-bandaged, the risk is great that swelling will return to pre-treatment stage.
Consistent bandaging alone can help to reduce swelling from lymphedema.

Our bodies are incredible. Every day we are constantly being attacked by bacteria, pollution, viruses etc.
Luckily we have our own defense system to deal with this.
Most people call it the immune system, it’s real name is the lymph system, and it’s amazing
Lymph comes from the Latin word lympha, meaning “clear water.”
Lymph is the fluid that flows from our lymph nodes then through our sinuses to cooperate with our white blood cells to protect our bodies from being infected by things like cancer cells, fungi, bacteria and viruses.
There are approximately 700 lymph nodes in the human body, all of which serve as filters which fight off infections, remove toxins and cellular waste from the lymphatic fluid before it re-enters the bloodstream…
How can I put this simply…Lymph is to our lymphatic system what blood is to our circulatory system.
Now here’s the thing though–
While our circulatory system has the heart to pump and keep it moving and flowing… the lymphatic system does not.
In fact your lymph depends 100% on your skeletal muscular system moving it through your joints.
In other words– when our bones; muscles are in optimal order, the lymph flows through our system like a well-oiled machine.
Here lies the problem however…
How many of us are in tip- top shape with no aches and pains resulting from strained muscles or misaligned bones?
Can you see how this might cause problems?
If the lymph is not flowing freely it eventually fills up the pockets or sinus areas and blocks them up.
It then could cause swelling, add weight on us and become a breeding ground of infection.
As you can imagine this can easily lead to a whole bunch of joint related and even weight related problems.
Now you can see why a Ginger Oil for lymphatic drainage massage has caught on in recent years.

Ginger Oil for lymphatic drainage massage can be a highly relaxing experience.
A rise in energy levels can be experienced even following the first session and falling asleep during your treatment can often occur.
Another easy exercise to help move the lymph fluid, is by taking a good deep breath in for the count of 5 seconds, hold it for 20 seconds and then release for 10 seconds.
Do this 10 times, 3 times a day and flood your body with oxygen and energy. We have to breathe all day long so why don’t we learn to do it properly and also make it work for us.
In addition to lymphatic drainage, drinking plenty of water, eating a healthy diet and exercise are all ways to support lymphatic circulation.
Every time we contract a muscle, the muscle rubs against numerous lymph vessels, stimulating them to contract. Yet another reason exercise is so good for us!
