Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the movement of lymph fluids around the body. The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from the bodily tissues. Some health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up. Lymphatic drainage massages can benefit people with lymphedema, fibromyalgia, and other conditions.

When we opened our second location in Egg Harbor in 2021, I wrote this intention for our new space:
is for this to be a healing space for all who enter here.
Be the air infused with positivity, laughter
compassion and light.
May this space be a sanctuary for people
To release mental, emotional, physical & spiritual pain;
A place for people to gain awareness, freedom
And ease within their bodies.
Let this space have a positive impact on our community
With a collective harmony between practitioners
Supporting each other in our quest for knowledge
And mastery of our craft, so we may better
Serve our clients on their journey.
We trust that our inner work will be in alignment
With our professional work.
Rooted in selfless service, we surrender
Our efforts to the Great Spirit
With recognition and a heart-centered knowing
That it is in giving that we receive.

"Say grandmother, how to relieve pain? "
"With our hands, darling. "
"With granny's hands?" "
" Yes. Our hands are the antennas of our soul. When you set them in motion by braiding, cooking, painting, playing or burying them in the earth, you send healing energy to the deepest part of you. Your soul lights up because you then realize its importance. Thus, the signs of pain are no longer necessary. "
"Are the hands really that important?"
"Yes, my daughter. Observe babies: they explore the world through touch through their little hands. See the hands of the ancients, they will tell you more about their lives than any other part of their body.
It is said that: "Everything that is done with the hand, is done with heart. "
Hands and heart are connected. Masseurs know this well: when they touch someone else's body with their hands, they create a deep connection. It is precisely from this connection that healing occurs. "
"My granny hands ... how long have I not used them like that!" "
"Put them in motion, my love, start to create with them and everything in you will get in motion. Realize what you want to produce with this pain, that it will reveal your ability to make it your most beautiful masterpiece. The pain will disappear, because you will have been able to transform its essence. "
