Lymphatic drainage is a natural process that helps to remove excess fluid from the tissues and cells. As we go through life, we acquire excess fluids from various movements and activities that ends up in our lymphatic system.
The lymphatic system is responsible for carrying lymph - a clear, watery fluid - through the body. Lymph nodes are small organs that filter out bacteria, foreign substances and cancerous cells from the lymph before it enters the bloodstream.
How Can Lymphatic Drainage Benefit Different Types of People?
The lymphatic system is the body’s natural way to remove toxins and waste from the body. The lymphatic system consists of ducts and nodes that are connected to all over the body, including the skin, head, neck, chest, abdomen and groin. Lymph nodes are located throughout the body in order to filter out any harmful substances before they enter into our bloodstream.
Lymphatic drainage techniques work by applying gentle pressure on these nodes in order to increase blood flow in them. This will help flush out any toxins that have built up in these areas of your body.
