Research has shown that one system, the lymphatic system, is the key factor in longevity, disease prevention and living a healthy and vital life. Yet, neither the research community, nor the medical community, and certainly not the public, know much about it. Our lymphatic system, “the Secret River of Health”, plays a major role and effects various other systems of our bodies improving cardiovascular, neurological and immune systems to name a few.
Our lymphatic system, our lymph, has a hand in virtually every major problem and disease that happens in the body. Human beings have 600-700 lymph nodes spread throughout the body. Most of them are in the area of our intestines (abdominal area), our neck and head, inguinal and axillary. The lymphatic systems runs between your blood vessels to clear toxins from the body, almost like a filter, and helps deliver nutrients.
The lymphatic system operates daily in our bodies virtually unnoticed. It work closely with our immune system.
Lymphatics is where our daily “life and health” battles are won or lost. If our body is compromised in any way, due to trauma, disease, stress or surgery of any kind, our lymphatic system slows down and does not work smoothly and properly.
One must improve lymphatic flow so that your body is better able to clear out waste products, toxins, and clean up the disfunction that causes injury, imbalance, inflammation, and disease, which results in chronic poor health. Research shows that a healthy lymphatic system has a role in preventing and decreasing not only cancer but heart disease, brain problems, gastrointestinal issues, and much more.
This is where lymphatic massages can impact one’s health, wellness and longevity. Lymphatic drainage massage therapy uses light pressure and rhythmic movements to encourage lymph drainage, whereas regular massages focus on the muscles. Unlike the circulatory system, the lymph does not have a pump; it relies on muscle movement to move fluid. Lymphatic massages will help get the lymph flowing to a healthier state and improve the body’s ability to fight injury, infection and disease.
All Lymphatic Massage Sessions Must Be Prepaid Before Scheduling.
