What Is Lymphatic Drainage?
Types Of Lymphatic System
Lymph Vessels: Carry the lymph fluid, the lymph fluid ferries toxins
and waste products to the liver and kidneys, where they are then
safely disposed of by the body.
Lymph Nodes: This network of vessels connects to lymph nodes in
the neck, armpits, stomach and groin which act as a filter, trapping
or destroying toxins that predispose us to health problems.
Lymphatic Organs: produce immune cells to fight against infections
Ever wondered why having a paper cut on your finger might lead to an armpit lump?
The lymphatic system is a sub-system between the circulatory and immune systems. It could be called the body’s’ ‘plumbing’ system. The lymphatic system has four main functions:
What Happens If My Lymphtaic System Is Clogged?
Loss of proteins
About 25-50% of blood proteins leak out of the capillaries each day and they cannot get back into capillaries without the help of the lymphatic system.
Fluid retention or edema
Your arms, legs, hands and ankles will be swollen and in some cases the face giving you that puffy face
A poor functioning lymphatic system could be the reason why you’re sick.
Diseases Associated With The Lymphatic System
Why Do You need A Lymphatic Drainage Massage?
How Does It Work?
Phase 1: Health Assessment
Meeting the therapist to find out more about
Our health practitioner will then plan with your individual need to tackle all your problems and to avoid any contraindications.
Your practitioner may have you do simple deep breathing exercises prior to your massage to stimulate your lymphatic system and prepare your lymph nodes to bring in more fluid.
Phase 2: Detoxification
Phase 3: Maintenance
Your therapist will advice you to rest for a bit before heading home after your massage.
There will be frequent urinations and bowel movements. That is okay. This way, body toxins and wastes will be flushed out and then you will finally get rid with all those harmful elements that cause diseases and other illnesses. Also, although it is really tempting to eat a lot, you have to mind what and how much you eat.
Eat healthy foods and limit your intake with all those fatty and greasy favorite of yours because most of the times these are the culprits of the sufferings experienced by your own body.
