LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE

DEFINITION

Lymphatic drainage is sometimes called 'massage' because it involves hand movements in your body but it is very different. A gentle therapeutic and rhythmic massage that stimulates the lymph flow around the body. This helps to flush out the water excess and toxins, aiding for a general well-being.

HOW IT WORKS

The lymphatic system is part of immune system and it is very superficial. Composed by veins and lymph nodes strategically localised, the lymphatic system is responsible for collecting and draining metabolic waste, toxins and water excess. By stimulating the lymph nodes and pushing the lymph toward the heart, it will go back inside the blood stream, filtered by kidneys and flushed out through urination. In this process, water intake is essential.

The human body is composed of up to 60% water and 70% of this is from our cells waiting to be collected and drained out.
