"I had an injury last year which caused a lot of changes in my body. One thing many medical professionals noticed was that they felt a lot of "clogged" lymph nodes, congestion, etc. Additionally, I followed a blogger on social media who swore by lymphatic drainage massages, which got me excited. I searched it up and thought I'd find someone at a nearby massage business who had experience with lymphatic drainage massages...nothing special. To my surprise, I found there was a whole center dedicated to it!
I quickly called, had a consultation, and scheduled an appointment with Maribel since she had the soonest availability. My first session included a dry brushing session, hot towels, and hot rocks. Extremely divine. Though I really enjoyed Maribel, I wanted to get a massage with the founder (Sharon), especially since she had more experience with this specific type of massage. I purchased a package of 3 with Sharon and went back.
First of all: Sharon is so freaking sweet and jolly. I love talking to her, and you can tell she's passionate about her work. She's studied this and loved it so much she started her own business.
Our session started with a foot massage on the vibrating plates. She explained this was to get everything moving upwards so it could drain. As someone who likes understanding how things work, I was fascinated. We then went to the room. I had a lot of questions, and she pulled out books to explain to me how this massage works. The first two sessions were great, but I do have to say, the final one was a 20/10. The final one also included drainage on my face, and I felt so rejuvenated afterwards. When the sessions are over, she has you go back on the vibrating plates to ensure everything drains. Beware: your legs WILL get itchy during this. It's weird science, but it will happen!
I really loved getting my massage there, and I'll definitely be back. Only con is that it is a bit expensive, but I do think it's worth it. Another massage therapist inspected me and noticed a complete change in my overall congestion/lymph nodes, so that's a plus! :)
If you're on the fence, or if you've come across it and you're simply intrigued, I'd say do it. You won't know if you don't try. :)"
