Why Lymphatic Drainage?

Benefits & Uses 

When your lymphatic system is sluggish, you can experience unclear thinking, lethargy, dull headaches, irritability, depression, anxiety, and an increased desire to sleep much of the time. The gentle strokes of Lymphatic Drainage Massage Protocol create movement which stimulates the lymphatic systems function while enhancing the immune system and assisting the interaction of the lymphatic system with the digestive, circulatory and cerebrospinal systems. 

Your lymph passages run all throughout your body and are responsible for moving lymph to your lymph nodes. The lymph carries environmental toxins, as well as bacteria, viruses and cellular waste, travel through these pathways to the lymph nodes. The lymph nodes are cleansing stations where lymph is filtered and purified. When lymph becomes stagnant, our cells cannot work efficiently, causing toxins to build up resulting in a variety of health issues and diseases.
