The shoulder and neck together hold up the heaviest part of the body – the head. The stress on the neck and shoulder muscles is increased tenfold when the head is held at unnatural angles for prolonged periods of time.

Lymph Drainage Facial Massage is to move fluid out of your tissues into lymph nodes where bacteria, viruses and other harmful microorganisms are destroyed. It reduces swelling and pain and stimulates your immune system, increasing the circulation of white blood cells. There are many lymph nodes in your face and neck, and they protect you against pathogens that can enter your body through your eyes, nose and mouth.HOW IT WORKS?
The specific treatment, actually called manual lymph drainage (usually referred to as MLD) was developed in the 1930s in France by Emil Vodder, a Danish physical therapist, and his wife, Estrid, a naturopath.
Lymph drainage massage mimics the action of lymph vessels. Because so many of your lymph vessels are located right below your skin, use light pressure — just enough to move the skin without pressing more deeply. Moving the skin helps open the initial lymphatics, which are very tiny lymph vessels with leaf-like cells that open to allow tissue fluid into the lymphatic system. The basic massage movement is a circle with slightly more pressure in the direction of the lymph nodes and lighter pressure as you finish the circle. This helps push fluid inside the lymph vessels into the nodes.WHERE ARE THE LOCATION OF LYMPH NODES
You have lymph nodes on your face near your ears and eyes. There is a chain of lymph nodes that reaches from the inner corners of your eyes to your nose. Around the bottom of your head there is a ring of nodes – the occipital nodes in back at the base of your skull, nodes under and behind your ears and nodes under your jaw line and chin. Lymph fluid that moves from your head into these nodes then drains into two chains of nodes on your neck, leading down toward the collar bone. Eventually lymph, once it has been processed in the lymph nodes, empties into blood vessels near your heart, to circulate around the body again.THE BENEFITS OF LYMPH DRAINAGE FACIAL OVER OTHER PROCEDURES INCLUDING :
Lymph facial massage is widely used to improve the appearance of the skin from the inside out. However, lymph facial massage has other treated benefits as well:Facial Swelling
Facial swelling can be due to allergies, hormones, medication, fatigue, illness, infection and injury, excess salt in the diet or weeping. Puffiness around the eyes can make you look tired and can lead to wrinkles. Lymph drainage massage on the face will stimulate circulation of the lymphatic system, which pulls fluid away from your skin and underlying tissues and carries the fluid through lymph nodes, where it is purified before being returned to the cardiovascular system.Cold and Flu Season
Many lymph nodes are located in the face and neck to defend against disease-causing organisms that are inhaled or ingested. Lymph drainage massage stimulates the circulation of fluid through lymph nodes, where disease causing organisms are destroyed by white blood cells. Try to have at least three lymph drainage massages on your face and neck at the beginning of the flu season to stimulate lymph circulation in those areas where the flu enters the body, the mouth and nose.Chronically Swollen Lymph Nodes
Many people have chronically swollen lymph nodes, often from repeated infections and childhood illnesses. First, it is important to have the nodes examined to rule out more serious conditions. If there is no serious condition causing the swollen nodes, and no infection is present, regular lymph drainage massage can help to reduce the size of the nodes and improve lymph circulation in the area. Ask your massage therapist to show you how to self-treat, since progress will be slow, and you will see results faster with daily massage.Beautifying the Skin
Lymph drainage massage carries away toxins from the dermal tissues, and allows increased nutrition to flow into the skin, improving its condition. Regular lymph drainage massage will change the appearance of the complexion, causing the skin to glow with increased health. However, if the skin is infected, or if there is acne that is red and inflamed, it is better to wait until the infection has cleared up before proceeding with any kind of massage to the face.
