Lymphatic Drainage Massage
The lymph system carries fluid, nutrients, and waste material between the body tissues and bloodstream. Harmful substances are removed from the body tissues and neutralized in the lymph nodes. A healthy lymph system is essential for fluid circulation and immune functions of the body. Lymphatic drainage massage uses gentle rhythmic touch to help detoxify the body. Lymph vessels are found throughout the body, with more than 70% of them found just below the skin. With light pressure, cellular waste can be moved through the lymph system to the lymph nodes where bacteria, viruses, and foreign substances can be trapped and destroyed.
