The Power of Lymphatic Massage
How Power Touch Reshapes Your Body
Did you know that the lymphatic system has a ripple effect on many areas of your health and wellbeing, impacting how you feel and look? A sluggish or blocked lymphatic system can contribute to problems such as a build-up of toxins in the body, swelling and bloating, the appearance of cellulite, excess water retention, and even a lowered metabolic rate.
At Atma Wellbeing, our advanced signature method of lymphatic detox massage, known as Power Touch, is incredible for naturally stimulating lymph flow. This is highly effective in helping to reshape your body. You can even expect to see immediate, noticeable results! However, the real effect will last well beyond the treatment. Usually, a course of lymphatic drainage massages will provide the best body reshaping results.
Power Touch Supports Weight Loss
Having a blocked up lymphatic system makes it harder to lose weight as well as contributing to unnecessary “water weight”. By manually activating the flushing of the lymphatic system using our unique combination of pressure, rhythmic movements, stroke technique and working on specific target areas of the body, our therapists can help redirect stagnant fluid towards unblocked lymph nodes for proper elimination from the body. This results in immediate weight loss from the removal of excess fluid, whilst also supporting a healthy system for longer term weight loss as part of an active and nutritious lifestyle.
Power Touch Boosts Metabolism
A well-functioning lymphatic system plays a contributing role in having a healthy metabolic rate. The higher your metabolism, the more energy (and fat) your body burns, whether you’re active or simply resting! Consistent Power Touch lymphatic drainage massage helps prevent your metabolic rate from slowing down, keeping your body running like an efficient furnace. In turn, this supports achieving or maintaining a healthy weight.
Power Touch Reduces Cellulite
Regular Power Touch lymphatic drainage massage is an excellent natural method for both reducing and preventing cellulite. The use of applied pressure to the various layers of tissue can help smooth the muscle fascia, diminishing the bumpy appearance of cellulite. The enhanced circulation has the benefit of being a great way to stop cellulite from building up to begin with, or prevent more cellulite from forming whilst you tackle existing areas.
Power Touch Helps Detoxification
The primary role of the lymphatic system is to carry and dispose of fluid waste. Regular Power Touch lymphatic drainage massage manually manoeuvres excess water and its waste products that are retained in the body towards channels of elimination.
If the lymphatic system isn’t working well, excess toxins can build up in the body and be stored inside fat cells. This makes it harder to lose weight, as the body is reluctant to breakdown fat cells in which toxins have been stored, in order to protect itself from them. When the lymphatic system is able to flow and eliminate this toxic waste, it frees up room for stored toxins to be dumped and eliminated from the body too. In turn, this also assists with reducing inflammation, further facilitating detoxification to help with reshaping the body.
Power Touch Supports Healthy Hormones
The massage itself is both therapeutic and incredibly relaxing. It provides you with a time to switch off and take pause from the busy world. This works wonders for your hormones on two different levels, which have a key role in the shape of your body.
Firstly, one of the most common hormonal imbalances in women is oestrogen dominance, which usually means they have excess oestrogen in relation to progesterone. Difficult to shift fat stores around the hips, thighs and bottom can be an indicator of oestrogen dominance. Studies have demonstrated that the healthy functioning of a woman’s lymphatic system directly effects how progesterone moves around her body. An efficiently moving lymphatic system, supported by regular Power Touch lymphatic drainage massages, can therefore play an important role in supporting healthy progesterone levels and counter having proportionately too estrogen.
Secondly, reducing stress is a factor that can be overlooked when you’re focussed on trying to lose weight, however it’s important to address any excess cortisol (the stress hormone) as this can significantly contribute to weight gain or difficulty losing weight. In particular, fat stored around the stomach area is linked to excess cortisol. By unwinding, you activate your parasympathetic nervous system, taking you out of the modern day “fight or flight” mode to support healthy, balanced hormones. Often this can result in dropping stress related fat deposits.
