BENEFITS OF LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE

(as defined by the Edison Institute of Nutrition)


Lymphatic Drainage is an important tool to keep the lymphatic system in good condition for optimum health.  The main task of the lymphatic system is to keep the immune system operating well while cleaning and nourishing all the cells in the body, no matter what their function.  A poorly functioning lymphatic system can affect every part of the body.  Lymphatic Drainage techniques can counteract the effects of adverse lifestyle choices and environmental pollutants that can compromise the immune system.


The Importance of a Well-Functioning Lymphatic System

The lymphatic system is made up of organs, ducts, nodes and vessels and is considered a vital part of the circulatory system.  The clear fluid called lymph is made up of white blood cells including lymphocytes which help the body's immune system defend against harmful bacteria and cancer cells.  Lymph nodes which are found in the neck, abdomen, groin and armpit manufacture the cells that allow the body to remove cancer and fight off infections.  Swelling of the lymph nodes, commonly called "swollen glands," occurs when the lymph nodes manufacture more white blood cells to fight infection.


The Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage

People may benefit from Lymphatic Drainage to treat a wide array of disorders, from edema (swelling) to wrinkles.


The following is a short list of problems that can benefit from Lymphatic Drainage:

  • Edema, which may be the result of traumatic injury, menstrual problems or skin disorders
  • Skin disorders, such as acne, rosacea, eczema and seborrhea
  • Metabolic problems, including fatigue, sleep disorders, chronic pain and stress
  • Gastrointestinal issues, such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), celiac and Crohn's disease
  • Rheumatology disorders, like arthritis and osteoporosis
  • Neurological problems such as migraines and vertigo
