This may come as a surprise to many but lymphatic massage therapy has been found to be effective in treating the symptoms of allergy. Professionally trained massage therapists may be asked to incorporate lymphatic massage therapy in other massage therapy modalities such as Swedish massage therapy, reflexology massage therapy, deep tissue massage therapy, sports massage therapy or even pregnancy massage therapy. You may request this from a reputable therapeutic massage spa in Beaverton that serves Washington County, Clackamas, Keizer, Lake Oswego, Portland, Tualatin, Sherwood and Vancouver WA.

Allergies are associated with a weak immune system. The lymphocytes that are necessary to protect the body from harmful invaders are produced by the immune system. These lymphocytes generate the antibodies that counteract dangerous substances carried by invaders. If the immune system is weak, however, even harmless substances are attacked because they are mistaken as harmful. This is when an allergic reaction is experienced.

Stress is one of the major factors in weakening the immune system. Stress triggers the oversupply of the stress hormone, cortisol, from the adrenal glands, and the oversupply of epinephrine and norepinephrine from the sympathetic nervous system. The excessive supply of these hormones impair the effective function of the immune system.

Another effect of stress is decreasing the levels of the neurotransmitter called cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) which is needed to keep open the air passages and to prevent an allergic response from the brain.

Fortunately, stress can be reduced and the immune system can be strengthened by regular massage therapy. Lymphatic drainage massage is a particularly valuable tool in diminishing allergic reactions.

Lymphatic drainage is important because the lymphatic system has a direct relation to the immune system. The immune system uses white blood cells and antibodies as ammunition in fighting off infections. These white blood cells and antibodies are carried throughout the body by the lymphatic system. If the lymphatic system is stagnated, the immune systems ammunition cannot be properly distributed all over the body. Toxins that are not flushed out also build up.

Stagnation of the lymphatic system is caused by lack of physical activity, dehydration, stress, fatigue, infection, cold temperatures, chemical or food additives, age and heredity.

The free flow of lymphatic fluid in the lymphatic system can be facilitated and increased through the manual manipulation and stimulation of the lymph nodes. This is what happens during lymphatic drainage massage. Harmful toxins are therefore drained out.

The professionally trained therapist has the capability to find the major lymph nodes of the body in the neck, armpits and groin, and will know the appropriate massage techniques to use on them. This will also be based on the persons particular lymphatic rhythm, its depth of flow, direction of flow and quality of flow. Using these information, a skilled therapist will be able to determine the state of the lymphatic systems circulation. Stagnant lymphatic fluids will be drained using very light pressure and long gentle rhythmic pumping strokes.

Lymphatic drainage massage on the face can provide immediate relief for symptoms of hay fever such as the inflammation and clogging of sinuses. With light tapping strokes on the sinuses lymphatic drainage massage can ease the congestion.

All massage therapy modalities such as Swedish massage therapy, reflexology missouri massage therapy therapy, deep tissue massage therapy, sports massage therapy and pregnancy massage therapy will strengthen your immune system and help you fight off your allergies. Lymphatic massage therapy will further detoxify and fortify your system. You can avail of all these with the help of professional massage therapists from a therapeutic massage spa in Beaverton that serves Washington County, Clackamas, Keizer, Lake Oswego, Portland, Tualatin, Sherwood and Vancouver WA.
