Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage
Louisville massage therapist Heather Wibbels, LMT has an exercise that you can perform on yourself to help relieve you from sinus discomfort and allow you to breathe freely again.

According to Wibbels, the pressure in your head and sinuses can be caused by a lymphatic fluid build up. This massage technique will help drain that fluid and open the lymph nodes in the neck and behind your ears.

Your lymphatic system helps to rid your body of toxins and waste, as well as transport lymph which helps fight infection. This lymphatic drainage massage technique will help speed up the rate that your lymphatic systems filters out waste and toxins.

You can perform Wibbels’ lymphatic massage technique anywhere from 4 to 5 minutes. Sometimes you can feel the fluid release right away. If not, you may need to try it a few times to get it to work.

You’ll know it’s working when:

  • you feel the pressure change in your head
  • your ears drain
  • if your nose runs
  • you have a tickle in the back of your throat
  • you need to swallow
  • your ears pop or experience a change in volume

Make sure you do this slowly and with extremely light pressure. You can do this every day during cold or allergy season if necessary, but it is critical that you consult your doctor before doing lymphatic drainage massage if you have the following conditions:

  • Fever, acute infection or early inflammatory disease
  • Circulatory problems, including thrombosis or risk of embolism of phlebitis
  • Heart disease, acute angina pectoris or coronary thrombosis (heart attack), or other heart conditions
  • Active bleeding
  • Active malignant cancers, undiagnosed lumps, or tumors
  • High-risk pregnancy

Learn how to perform the technique in the video below.
