The lymphatic system is a critical part of the circulatory system that carries away toxins, cellular wastes, and dead cells to be processed and eliminated. Without the lymphatic system, our cells would swell up with stagnant fluid. A sluggish lymph system can compromise your immune system and lead to aches, pains, low energy, and increased vulnerability to colds and flu.

Lymphatic drainage massage encourages the free flow of lymph in your body using long sweeping strokes and slow manipulation of the tissues at precise points. This type of massage stimulates immune function and encourages harmful substances to pass out of your system. Lymphatic massage is also excellent to relieve swelling, reduce bruising, and speed healing following an injury or surgery.
