The lymphatic drainage system is our body’s front line defence mechanism in fighting bodily infections, detoxifying the body and transporting metabolic wastes, excess water, bacteria and toxins out of the body.
Lymphatic drainage is a gentle, slow and light whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids in boosting the body’s immune system. Recommended for those who are prone to and/or recovering from sore throats, colds, infections, ongoing tiredness, excess fluid retention, low immunity, swollen nodes and for the physically inactive. Lymphatic drainage is also recommended to those with swollen ankles or legs after air travel, headaches, and medical conditions following cosmetic surgery.
Throughout lymphatic drainage the lymph system is stimulated, promoting a strong flow to ensure efficient removal of wastes. If the lymph system is sluggish, toxins hang around in the body creating a higher potential for inflammation and therefore illness and weakness from invading virus bacteria.
Lymphatic drainage therapy has also been shown to help with various conditions associated with cancer and cancer treatment, in particular Lymphodema.
