Because lymph fluid moves slowly without aid of its own pump, inactivity can seriously restrict its flow. Muscular contraction through exercise and deep breathing is the primary means by which our lymph circulates, but lymphatic massage and drainage provide another helpful option. As lymphatic system circulates fats, proteins and immune cells and removes bacteria, viruses and cholesterol as well, a regular lymph massage (particularly around the abdomen, axillary nodes, and breast) can be great preventive health maintenance.
Deep Tissue Massage
Deep tissue massage is a technique that concentrates in the deep layers of muscle tissue. It is focalized in releasing chronic muscle tension of the body through soft movements and deep pressure in contracture areas, following and crossing muscle fibers, tendons and fascia. This massage helps to release toxins that are accumulated in muscles and promotes an adequate blood circulation and oxygenation. This massage is recommended to those persons that like strong pressure, it is special for sportsmen and persons who present considerable contractures.
Healing Stone Massage
The Chinese dynasty “Shang”, Romans and Native American used to utilize different types of stones at different temperatures with therapeutic purposes. Healing stone massage uses hot basaltic lava stones; these stones contain a high level of iron. This allows the stone to keep the heat for more time. The heat and magnetic power of the stone combined with the massage, fights the pain, relax the body and expand the blood vessels and lymphatic system. It also revitalizes and oxygenates the skin. Some stones are located in different parts of the body (chakras) and others are moved by the therapist doing a massage. The use of the stones adds a thermal and pressure effect.
Back, Neck & Shoulder Massage

The vascular dilatation, muscular and nerve balance achieved in this area is transmitted to the rest of the body and transforms tension and stiffness in the neck, shoulders and back into a pleasant lightweight sensation.
