If you’ve been enjoying yourself over the festive period with plenty of parties, food and drink, then you’re probably starting to feel a bit sluggish. Maybe you’re getting more headaches, digestive issues or generally feeling lethargic then it might be time to give your body a lift and detox your system for the New Year.
Drinking plenty of water and eating a healthy balanced diet are obviously key starting points to getting back on track after Christmas. Although, if you want to give your body a helping hand then here are some key treatments that can increase circulation and lymphatic drainage, helping to detox your body.
When booking your massage let them know you’d like it to help with detoxing and lymphatic drainage and they will be able to advise you on the best one they have available. Getting a massage can help promote blood circulation and the movement of lymphatic fluids. Improving your circulation will help ensure your organs are all getting a boost.
The massaging techniques and different strokes used by the therapist around your whole body will not only ease your muscles it will help your lymphatic drainage to clear the toxins from your system.
A treatment used to relieve tension and treat illness, reflexology uses the reflex points on the feet that are said to be linked to every part of the body.
The theory is that reflexology helps the body to restore its balance naturally. So, by focusing on certain areas of the feet a specially trained therapist can help improve your circulation and your lymphatic drainage for your whole body.
This is an excellent cleansing technique as acupuncture is used to improve your energy flow and also helps to de-clog your lymphatic system.
When the lymphatic system becomes sluggish our organs can become congested and our health suffers. Getting a treatment that helps with lymphatic drainage is important as it assists in removing waste and toxins.
This not only assists in your body’s circulation it also helps rid the body of dead skin cells.
Exfoliation will improve your skin tone and texture, which is something you’re sure to need after Christmas. Different essential oils can be used with the scrub to give different results, but opting for something moisturising and reviving is a good choice at this time of year.
The gentle sweeping movements of the therapist with the body scrub will improve the circulation of oxygen to the surface of your skin, allowing products to be more easily absorbed and leaving you looking radiant. A perfect way to start the new year!
This massage involves the application of heated stones to the body, which is deeply relaxing and assists with circulation. Round, smooth stones are heated to a luxurious warmth, oiled and used to gently massage the body. Heat penetrates deeply, prompting muscle relaxation, increased detoxification, and relief of tension and fatigue.
It’s said that by combining massage with hot stones, the circulatory system is both stimulated and relaxed. This circulatory activity promotes the release of toxins from the muscles, assisting the body in self-healing making it deeply detoxifying.
