Lymphatic drainage

Hoito saatu ilmaiseksi Blue Lagoonilta// Treatment sponsored

Yesterday, I spent my work day doing what I usually do, a mix between all kinds of things, but with an unusual touch of luxury. In the middle of the day, I treated myself with lymphatic massage at the Blue lagoon beauty salon. I’ve always loved lymphatic massage, since I have sensitive legs that easily get bloated and restless. Travelling and sitting still, is the worst for my legs, but also the heat. I thought I’d share my experiences with lymphatic massage (also known as lymphatic drainage), since I think it can be very useful, but find this method of treatment quite unknown/uncommon here in Finland.

The first time I tried lymphatic massage was when I was pregnant with my first born. I was extremely bloated and my legs were aching, although I worked out a lot and tried to stay very active. Why lymphatic massage is beneficial, is because the massage is designed to boost circulation of fluids and to help toxins and wastes get out of the body faster. Perfect now, after a long super hot summer! It also makes your circulation of fluid much more efficient and boosts the immune system.

I love lymphatic massage because I feel like it flushes out my entire body and I sometimes even feel like I get more energy afterwards. It’s perfect for aching or swollen legs, cellulite, boosts energy and it’s also good for the skin. It’s perfect for re-starts into trying to achieve a healthier lifestyle. I highly recommend this form of massage if you feel swollen and want to get a little help on the way to flush that out.

Did you achieve your dream body for the beach 2018 or are you still hoping to get there? What I’ve learned or at least I try to keep in mind, is that there isn’t such a thing for me. No matter what shape I’m in I’m always as satisfied/ unsatisfied. All I know is that age is the only thing that manages to do magic and of course having a good conscious about living a balanced and healthy life with exercise, healthy foods and moderate amount of indulgent.

At one point, I was very aware of every nutrient I put into my body and took healthy living to another level. I was super excited about everything I learned in my studies within nutrition and wanted to try everything at once. Today I’m much more relaxed and feel like I have the tools to create balance. I believe that some “crap” here and there do us well in one way or another. I love my yoga and eating well, but life and the freedom to go with the flow is the more important. That being said, I’m really enjoying this time of the year when I have the time and possibility to make fresh salads and enjoy fresh fruits. Taking time to care for ourselves is the best investment.
