Mandolin Gardens


  Lymphatic massage ,  is a type of gentle massage which is intended to encourage the natural drainage of the lymph , which carries waste products away from the tissues back toward the heart. The lymph system depends on intrinsic contractions of the smooth muscle cells in the walls of lymph vessels ( peristalsis ) and the movement of skeletal muscles to propel lymph through the vessels to lymph nodes and then beyond the lymph nodes to the lymph ducts which return lymph to the cardiovascular system.     Ruthie brings her love of nature to Mandolin Gardens. Having been massaging for 26 years she brings a nurturing experience to each client. My father was an old fashioned Scottish country doctor. I learned compassion from him. Growing up in the Scottish countryside instilled her love of nature, and she wants to bring this to each person she touches. From the sound of the lily pond as you enter her massage studio, to the garden theme that surrounds the massage table, you are transported to an English country garden, including the melodious sound of birds singing.  Over twenty years of massage experience, along with her natural instincts, makes this an experience you will remember.
