Lymphatic Drainage

 

lymphatic-systemLymphatic drainage massage helps deliver cellular waste and microscopic villains like viruses and bacteria, which may cause cellulite, to the lymph nodes.

These filter-like masses, which are found from head-to-toe, deliver this material to the liver, kidneys, and lungs.

This drainage is essential because the lymphatic system lacks a pump of its own to transport the lymph through the body and must rely on movement, muscular contraction, and massage to flush the fluid.
