The lymphatic system is the body’s drainage system ridding itself of toxins and bacteria that build up over time. It also plays a crucial role in your body’s ability to ward off infections and illnesses as well as healing from injury.
Lymph pathways that are clogged can cause aches, pains, loss of appetite, migraines, depression, fatigue and other flu like symptoms.
Lymphatic massage typically uses light to moderate pressure (adjusted to suit the client’s preference) and rhythmic pumping motions in the direction of the lymph nodes to assist the body in healing itself, increasing lymph flow by as much as 10 to 20 times the normal amount.
The effects of regular lymphatic massage include: an increased immune system, increased metabolism, decreased edema, and enhanced skin tone and vibrancy.
