The Lymphatic system is similar to our circulatory system. It is our front line of defence in fighting bodily infections, detoxifying the body and transporting metabolic wastes, excess water, bacteria and toxins out of the body.
The difference is that the lymph system relies on muscular movement to move the fluid through a broad network of vessels and glands. It has no pump or heart to move the fluid around.
Lymphatic Drainage is a gentle whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids the body’s immune system. It is highly recommended for those prone to and recovering from sore throats, colds, infections, on-going tiredness, excess fluids, low immunity, swollen nodes and also for the physically inactive.
The after affect of a MLD massage can include cold and flu like symptoms, lethargy and body aches as a result of the sudden influx of toxins into the blood stream, which the body then has to deal with.
Once these symptoms pass and the body has processed the toxins, the benefits will then be noticed.
