The lymphatic system consists of lymph vessels, lymph nodes, and tissue such as tonsils, spleen, and thymus. The lymphatic system is the defense mechanism against infection and disease and aids in removing excess water from the tissue spaces. The lymphatic system does not have a pump like the circulatory system has the heart. This part of the body relies on gravity, body motion and natural flow to circulate within the body.
There are several methods to lymphatic massage ultimately promoting and encouraging the flow with rhythmical controlled strokes to find a path for drainage. This technique helps restore the connective tissue, removes inflammatory toxins, and helps the immune system to be more efficient.
Lymphatic massage is used to treat arthritis, fatigue, pain in joints, cellulite and more.
