Manual Lymphatic Drainage

Our Lymphatic System

 

Lymphatics is an amazing system which works to provide immunity against disease and facilitate the removal of toxins and metabolic waste from the body.

 

It is a complex network of fluid-filled nodes, glands and tubes that bathe our cells and carries the body's 'sewage' away from the tissues and neutralises it. Lymphatic fluid, lymph, carries cells throughout our bodies that search for and destroy bacteria, viruses, toxins and waste.

 

The lymphatic system also helps to circulate fluids, proteins, hormones and immune cells that are vital to maintaining physiological well-being and balance.

 

As the lymphatic system lacks a central pump like the heart, it depends on other factors such as muscle contraction, movement, respiration, gravity and massage to stimulate lymph circulation. 

 

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a very gentle, rhythmic style of massage that improves lymph circulation and the body's immunity against infection.

 

Lymphatic massage has powerful cleansing, relaxing and pain-relieving effects that can be very effective in maintaining overall health and well-being. It is a completely natural treatment which aids the body's own healing processes.
