What is Lymphatic Drainage?

 

The lymphatic system is a network of organs and tissues that is responsible for removing toxins and waste from the body. A part of the body's immune system, it transports lymph, a fluid containing white blood cells that help fight against infections, to the cells throughout the body.

However, some health conditions can cause the lymph to build up in the bodily tissues and hinder the lymphatic system from functioning optimally. Lymphatic drainage massage might be the solution. Commonly known as lymphatic drainage, it is a gentle, rhythmical massage treatment that helps in stimulating the circulation of lymph fluid throughout the body. It also helps in preventing swelling after a surgery or an injury. Additionally, it provides a great boost to the immune system.
