Lymphatic Drainage Massage

What Is Lymphatic Drainage Massage And Can It Help Runners?

Most runners are good at taking care of their bodies.

They understand that running can put a lot of stress on their bodies, and to improve their time, and avoid picking up common running injuries, they need special support.

If you’re a runner, here is something that could dramatically improve your performance and reduce your injury risk – Lymphatic Drainage Massage.

What Is Lymphatic Drainage Massage?

You might not have ever thought about lymphatic drainage massage (or even heard of it).

And yes, we know that a few people get through fine without it, but once you start learning about the lymphatic system (and yes, we encourage you to do so), you’ll want to add this to your routine.

Our founder Dr. Alex Gometz has seen great results from hundreds of patients that have benefitted from these massages and explains how it works:

“This medical massage focuses on stimulating the lymphatic system by gently massaging and activating specific areas of the body. The effects are immediate and it’s incredibly safe, natural and non-invasive treatment option. However, lymphatic massage is not for everyone because there a few contraindications so it’s best to seek professional advice.“

To find out whether lymphatic drainage massage is right for you, arrange a free discovery visit or call us on 619-369-9442 (San Diego Clinic) or 212-717-8330 (New York Clinic).

How Does Lymphatic Drainage Massage Help Runners Specifically?

Whether you are training for a race or simply running for fun, your body has been working hard to process your daily activities.

Due to the sheer time some runners spend exercising, they can be particularly vulnerable to bodily waste and toxins which build up in areas of your body.

This can lead to health problems that affects your circulation, immune system and digestion.

With so much exposure to toxins (and it’s on the rise), a lot of people can notice huge health improvements with lymphatic drainage massage.

Especially because this is a quick and easy way to clean out your body and reduce toxins that creep into your system through the air you breathe, the foods you consume and your general environment.
