    So what is Lymphatic Massage You Ask? Well, lets talk about this wonderful technique and how you can learn it and help improve your health! Manual lymph drainage massage (also called lymphatic drainage and lymph massage) is a form of very light massage that encourages lymph flow in the body. It is particularly good for detoxification, edema, pre- and post surgery, high blood pressure, headaches, fibromyalgia, autoimmune, and even cellulite.

    Dr. Leah Hollon ND and Heather Cronin CMT are your instructors for RNM’s Exclusive Lymphatic Massage Class on Saturday October 10th.

    The lymph system is a slow-moving system of vessels and lymph nodes that is supplementary to the body’s system of blood circulation. The lymph system both delivers nutrients to the cells and carries away excess water, cellular waste, bacteria, viruses and toxins. Lymph massage stimulates the lymph system with extremely light, circular pumping movements. By stimulating the lymphatic system, light massage helps drain puffy, swollen tissues, supports the body’s immune system, helps the body heal from surgery, and aids in the body’s natural waste removal or detoxification.

    When working with alternative therapies and support, patience is a virtue. One thing that connected me to lymphatic massage is the immediate results associated with it. If done correctly, results of feeling the movement of fluid can be achieved. I have found a lot of success with lymphatic massage and my clients. I often find myself explaining to them, how to do manual lymphatic massage on themselves. Because we believe in empowering our clients and patients at Richmond Natural Medicine, Dr. Leah Hollon ND MPH and Heather Cronin CMT, developed a lymphatic massage class in an effort to empower those interested in achieving optimal health in the comfort of their own hands. In this four hour course, we provide an in-depth look into the history of lymphatic massage, what exactly the lymphatic system is, and some hands on practice.

    Cost is $119.00

    The Primordial Qigong movement form is a joyful, flowing form that gathers powerful energies from earth, heaven, and the four directions. It can be used as a celebration, a moving meditation, an exercise or a spiritual practice. It is also called Wuji Gong, and Tai Chi for Enlightenment. It encompasses the Wuji, Bagua, Yin/Yang and Torus concepts. Qigong movements are looser/more free-form than Tai Chi movements. Learn this easy form to enjoy for the rest of your life—on the beach, at the mountains, or in your own backyard or living room.

    Qigong is an integration of physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused intentions. Qigong practices can be classified as martial, medical, or spiritual. All styles have three things in common: they all involve a posture (whether moving or stationary), breathing techniques, and mental focus. Some practices increase the Qi; others circulate it, using it to cleanse and heal the body. There are practices to store the Qi, and others to emit Qi to help heal other people.

    The slow, gentle movements of most Qigong forms can be easily adapted, even for the physically challenged and can be practiced by all age groups. Qigong creates an awareness of and influences dimensions of our being that are not part of traditional exercise programs. Most traditional programs do not involve the meridian system used in acupuncture nor do they emphasize the importance of adding mind intent and breathing techniques to physical movements. When these dimensions are added, the benefits of exercise increase exponentially.

    The gentle, rhythmic movements of Qigong reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality, and enhance the immune system. Qigong also been found to improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic and digestive functions.

    People do Qigong to maintain their health, heal their bodies, calm their minds, and reconnect with their spirit.

    Digestion is the main way that we interact with the outside world. Every single food, beverage, and environmental intake through our digestion literally becomes part of our body, and it's easy for the digestive tract to get bogged down with negative inputs. This class will review how to support your digestive tract every single day using simple herbal inputs to address issues such as heart burn, stomach aches, constipation and diarrhea, and probiotics. Many of thee you may already have in your kitchen, and we'll learn how to put simple herbs to gather to make a simple and targeted digestive remedy for every need.
