Lymphatic technique improve breathing problems

Unique Lymphatic Technique for Respiratory Issues

Lauren Berry’s techniques are the most powerful tools I’ve learned in my 40+ years of massage therapy practice.  His Lymphatic technique creates immediate and dramatic results. In one session you can change

lives for the better.

I’ve taken many other classes in lymphatic work, but none of them are as effective in treating edema.  For years I have focused on using the Berry Method® for edema… instead of traditional lymphatic massage.
These Berry techniques have more practical applications than any other lymphatic massage method.  Besides addressing edema, they can restore a client’s ability to breathe.  This literally saves lives… and improves the quality of life for anyone with respiratory issues.
This lymphatic technique can be taught to a family member to ease congestion around the heart and lungs. 
In a healthy person, there is a vacuum around the lungs. They have a healthy sounding voice and no trouble speaking or breathing.  When the vacuum has been compromised the voice becomes very wispy and breathy. Fluids that have seeped into the vacuum make it hard for the lungs to expand and take in air. 
We compress the cavity around the heart and lungs to remove the excess fluid and air bubbles. This restores the vacuum and allows the lungs to function normally. Not only does the patient feel better immediately… they can take a breath and talk normally

Here’s what one of my students said after taking my class:

“As a home health professional, I frequently encounter complex lung and lymphedema situations involving dyspnea (difficulty breathing). After learning Lauren’s vacuum technique in Lynn’s informative Lymphedema management class, I applied it to a woman with heart failure and an acute episode of shortness of breath.
“Within three pumps she was “90%” improved and stunned at its simplicity and effectiveness. She asked me to teach her family to perform it as it gives her such relief, which I happily did. I am so glad to have learned this simple non-invasive method that brings so much relief. I also use the Decongestion massage regularly and highly recommend… this great class. Thanks, Lynn!”
If you have an aging family member or your work involves senior care, you need to know this lymphatic technique. It’s great for breathing problems and symptoms of chronic respiratory issues.
Clients with asthma, sinuses, or swelling have commented on their immediate improvement. If you’re wanting to help a family member, please contact me and come in for an appointment. Bring them with you so I can teach you the technique. 
Or, attend an upcoming Lymphatic Technique for Home Use Workshop. We have options for you to attend as an individual, couple or family.
For professionals please join me for my in-depth CEU Lymphatic Massage workshop.  You can find a complete list of classes here.

Therapeutic Massage Benefits stop pain and edema

10 Therapeutic Massage Benefits

 therapeutic massage benefits tight joints and pain
Lynn Performing Joint work
Therapeutic massage benefits your body. It gets results. It’s beyond stress relief. It coaxes your body back in balance. Pain relief. Swelling relief. Easier movement. Easier breathing.
Every person has a different experience. But in the hands of a skilled therapist, you’ll leave feeling better.  Here are 10 benefits you may notice.

         1. Increased circulation.

 Massage helps the body pump more oxygen & nutrients.  This feeds your tissues and organs and helps them be healthier.  It also triggers lymph flow. This is your body’s natural self-cleaning system.  Together, they improve the condition of your largest organ… your skin.

        2.  Activates the body’s self-healing

Your immune system is your body’s defense system. It’s tied to your lymph system.  When activated, it promotes self-healing.

         3. Relaxes and softens hurt or overused muscles.

When a tight or overused muscle can be relaxed, it helps to heal. It reduces pain.  Flexibility and range-of-motion improve. You’ll move more freely, stand taller and enjoy life more.

         4. Reduces spasms and cramps.

Reducing pain reduces recovery time. You heal faster and get back to enjoying life sooner.  It can also help athletes prepare for strenuous workouts.

        5. Releases natural painkillers.

Endorphins are the body’s natural painkillers. They control and relieve pain. This reduces the need for medications.  Activating them helps chronic illness or injuries.  It can also speed recovery from medical or cosmetic surgery.

        6. Reduces post-surgery adhesions and edema.

Adhesions are fibrous scar tissue. Following surgery, they can start to form.  This restricts movement and makes it painful. Correct techniques reduce and relax scar tissue.  Reduced pain means you can move more freely.

Edema is swelling. It can also follow surgery.  It’s caused when the lymph system isn’t working properly and fluids back up in an area.  Gentle lymphatic techniques drain these fluids. Swelling is immediately reduced.

        7. Reduces joint pain.

This work increases joint flexibility.  It can prepare you for strenuous workouts and improve range of motion.  Techniques of the Berry Method can correct the balance of the joint.  The joint is stabilized. Discomfort relieved and the need for surgeries delayed or eliminated.

       8. Decreases lower back pain.

Work with muscles, tendons and body balancing reduces lower back pain. You’ll move more comfortably and freely.

      9. Relieves migraine pain.

Migraines are painful and debilitating. Special sacral cranial techniques can relieve migraine pain.  This reduces the need for medications with their own side-effects.

     10. Provides exercise and stretching for weak muscles.

When a person becomes debilitated muscles can become weak.  They reduce in size and waste away. Range-of-motion becomes restricted. Proper techniques help reverse this condition.
