Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
These days, the manual acceleration of lymph drainage is mainly used by practitioners to reduce the size of lymphedemas, even though the main function of the lymphatic system is detoxification and disposal of metabolic waste.
The compromised quality of the air, water, food, etc., causes significant accumulations of metabolic waste products in our body, some of which are toxic.
In many cases, this accumulation of toxins causes us to feel low energy levels, fatigue, mood swings (the clinical symptoms of which are often confused with depression by physicians) fatigue, etc.
There is no doubt that lymph drainage is a powerful method for lymphedema reduction, but lymph drainage is valuable as a detoxification program.
Clients who receive full-body medical massage regularly (for example, on a weekly basis) should be getting a lymph drainage session every fifth treatment.
Techniques of full-body massage should not be incorporated with lymph drainage techniques, as this can cause severe reactions such as headache, dizziness, nausea, etc.
Detoxification can cause a significant improvement in the power and function of the immune system, providing the body with the environment to begin healing itself.
