How does a Magic-Roll work
This is a lymphatic drainage type of massage and, during the procedure, the whole lymphatic system is stimulated and lymph is directed to the lymphatic nodes.
Blood circulates through a complex system of blood vessels and, respectively, lymph circulates throughout the lymphatic system. The only thing that differs is that blood is pumped by a natural 'motor' - the heart. Lymphatic system does not have such a 'motor' and is stimulated only by muscle activity. Because of that, lymph circulation is rather slow and we have to take care of its activeness.
The more we move, exercise and workout the less lymphatic system problems occur. However, very few activities encourage lymph circulation as intensely as this lymphatic drainage massage. Each body part is stimulated according to the direction of lymph flow. Manual lymph drainage massage requires a good knowledge of human anatomy and lymph circulation. Roll Shaper procedure requires only following the instruction, with the direction of the drum's rotation being adjusted to each body part.
Why lymph circulation is so important?
This system cleanses your body and provides it with internal hydration. Its major functions are to cleanse and detoxify your body, hydrate your tissues, support your immune system, whilst increasing your metabolism. The first sign of sluggish lymph circulation usually is an internal ailment. A person may suffer from fatigue, low energy, sleeping disorders, digestion problems and weak immune system. When lymph circulation is disturbed, the tissues are not hydrated properly. This causes skin conditions, faster wrinkle formation, eye 'bags' and the worst enemy of all to women - cellulite.
During the procedure it is crucial to drink plenty of water. We also suggest you drink 0.5 - 1l of water before the massage. You are more than welcome to drink a complimentary bottle of water which we supply during the procedure. Plenty of water is needed, because deep body cleansing starts during lymphatic draining massage. Increased lymph flow eliminates toxins and other harmful substances. Body accumulates toxins due to unhealthy diet, environmental pollution and other factors. They are eliminated via sweat and urine. When there is not enough water in the body - lymphatic drainage system cannot properly perform the process.
Drink at least 6 glasses of water a day
Physicians and nutritionists are constantly highlighting the importance of water for our body. Recommended water intake per day for an adult is 6-8 glasses of water. This is not a huge amount, especially if one makes drinking water a habit. If we don't feel thirsty, it does not mean that our body doesn't need liquids. Under constant lack of water, it switches to 'saving mode'. Remember, if you feel thirst it means your body has already dehydrated! The rule of eating smaller servings, but more often, also applies to drinking. Rare and large amounts of water also puts additional burden on your kidneys; moreover, it all is immediately excreted with urine. In this case, water neither cleanses, nor hydrates the body. It is important to remember that juice, black tea or coffee are not considered as liquids. According to nutritionists, juice is food, and coffee, or black tea have diuretic effect.
