Lymphatic Drainage Massage
The lymphatic system is responsible for clearing out the unwanted waste from the body which builds up due to a sedentary lifestyle or after illness and surgery. If the lymphatic ducts are blocked they are not able to do this important work within the body and the waste product simply circulates around the body then deposits as fat and fluid within the lymphatic ducts. This can cause localized swelling due to fluid retention and can be painful to touch.
The lymphatic system relies on the movement through exercise or massage of the body to stimulate the clearing of toxicity. Some of the tell-tale signs that your lymphatic system is not working, is the retention of fluid throughout the body, you may feel tired and sluggish and you may find it difficult to lose weight. Some women accumulate cellulite on the thighs that will not budge.
It is also very important for women to keep the lymphatic ducts around the armpits clear to prevent a build-up of toxins going into the breast tissue.
Lymphatic drainage massage can increase the benefits of assisting the body when undergoing a detox program or to diminish the appearance of cellulite.
