Why Lymphatic Drainage massage can be good for you.
A properly functioning lymphatic system is essential for our health.
Lymphatic drainage massage is a type of gentle massage that stimulates the lymphatic system to promote healthy movement of lymph fluids around the body.
This lymphatic fluid helps get rid of waste and toxins from the body. Over the course of time, lymph fluid can build up in the body, and lymphatic drainage massages can help relieve this build up.
The lymphatic system relies on muscle movement to carry fluid through the lymph vessels. This flow can often be interrupted, causing the fluid to build up in specific areas of the body. The most common parts of the body affected by this build up are the arms and legs. Lymphatic massage can help decrease swelling in those areas and enhance circulation.
Parallel to regular lymphatic drainage treatments, one can boost their lymphatic system function by drinking plenty of water, staying physically active, eating lots of vegetables and fruits as well as limiting the intake of processed foods.
