What Are the Benefits of a Wellness and Detox Lymphatic Massage?
Have at look at this fun video from Shannon Goins CLT, a fellow certified lymphatic therapist, to understand how your lymphatic system can benefit!
Why Have a Lymphatic Massage?
Toxin exposure is a reality for us all. We take in toxins from the air we breathe, the medications we take, the food products we eat, the chemicals we use to clean our house.
Lymphatic massage (MLD) stimulates the lymphatic system, which is an essential part of your detoxification ‘support team’. The liver does most of the detoxification work in your body with a lot of help from your kidneys. By having a lymphatic massage, these organs will be stimulated in to action as we move the lymph.
If you are feeling sluggish and need a kick-start, having Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) also known as Lymphatic Massage can give your body the kick start it needs.
While the lymphatic system historically has received far less attention than its cousin the circulatory system, the medical community is beginning to take note of its significance in people’s overall health and well-being.
