ADD ON Lymphatic Drainage
An integral part of the body is the Lymphatic Drainage System. When functioning optimally, it is responsible for filtering our blood from toxins, bacteria, and viruses. It is imperative we keep this defense mechanism operating well for a healthy immune system and our general wellbeing.
Lymph nodes are small glands throughout the body which carry fluid, nutrients, and body waste from the body tissue and the blood stream. Lymph nodes are an integral part of the body’s immune system. The nodes filter fluid as it goes through the body- trapping bacteria, viruses, and foreign materials. The trapped material is then destroyed by lymphocytes.
Why do the Lymph Nodes swell?
As trapped bacteria, viruses, and foreign materials are collected, cells called lymphocytes are released into the nodes to destroy the foreign material, naturally causing lymph nodes to swell.
What is Lymphatic drainage?
Lymphatic Drainage is a process by which Lymph nodes are manually drained. Manual draining moves fluid along preventing clogging, so that toxins can be excreted via your body’s natural metabolic system.
