Happy 2020! Not only is it the start of a new year, but it’s also a new decade. And perhaps you indulged in a bit of extra celebrating over the past few weeks – leaving you feeling partied out or just…bleh.
Not to worry!
At our studio, we offer an array of customized therapeutic bodywork and specialty services to soothe and heal your overtired, over-stressed body. There is one particular service that comes to mind when I think of clients who are looking to detox, feel less bloated, and start their new year's resolutions off right. And that’s our Lymphatic Treatment.
The lymph system is part of your body's immune system and helps fight infection, so improving the flow and drainage of lymph around the body is good for you in a number of ways. Highly recommended for dieters, post-surgery patients, and post-natal women, this detoxing treatment encourages the natural drainage of lymph nodes, which carry waste products away from the tissues, back toward the heart.
People often think of lymphatic treatment as a massage – a total, head-to-toe rub-down. But, actually, it is quite the opposite. Manual lymph drainage uses a specific soft pressure technique and rhythmic circular movements to stimulate the immune and parasympathetic nervous system and detox the body, relieving metabolic toxins and waste. The benefits range from speeding up healing and reducing water retention to boosting weight loss by helping your body burn calories more efficiently.
This is a very light, gentle, and relaxing service – which I think we can all agree is exactly what we need after an eventful and exhausting holiday season! What makes the experience even more extraordinary at PK is that it’s paired with our delightful and nurturing practitioner, Jean – a licensed and practicing massage therapist for over 20 years who specializes in the lymphatic treatment.
To receive the full effects of this unique service, we recommend two sessions a week for three weeks. You will come away feeling calmer, lighter, and rejuvenated – and ready to take on everything 2020 has to offer with renewed energy and a clear head!
