4th Key – Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to drain stagnant fluids, detoxify, regenerate tissues, filter out toxins and foreign substances, and maintain a health immune system. It is a complex system comprised primarily of lymph vessels and nodes working in cooperation to accomplish these tasks. Unlike the circulatory system, which uses the pumping of the heart to circulate its blood flow, lymph vessels rely upon hundred of time muscular units, lymphangions, contracting throughout the body to propel lymph flow. These contractions enable the lymph vessels to transport numerous substances to lymph nodes, which can then process them. The action of these muscular units can be hindered or stopped, however, due to surgery, trauma, burns, infections, substantial swelling, fatigue, stress or age. When the lymph circulation stagnates, fluids, proteins, cells and toxins accumulate and cellular functioning is significantly compromised, This may open the way to many physical ailments and hasten the aging process. Lymphatic draining is a hands-on technique designed to attain and sustain proper functioning of the human fluid system.
