The lymphatic system contains clear, slightly yellow fluid that has the ability to transport nutrients and oxygen to the body's cells, while also collecting toxins on the way and flushing them out of the body via the lymph nodes. Essentially, our lymphatic system helps to fight infection and is part of the body's immune system.
Our body's first line of defense is our lymphatic system. A healthy lymphatic system is a healthy body.
Lymphatic drainage can help to maintain the body's fluid balance, blood circulation, immune mechanisms and toxin removal.

Regularly cleansing the lymphatic system is vital to ensure proper health and maintenance. It can also assist with enhancing the immune system after a surgical procedure, as well as reducing discomfort and any pain that is experienced. Lymphatic drainage can help to reduce puffiness and/or swelling around the eyes, mitigate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and support an even complexion on the face.
Lymphatic drainage can also assist in reducing lethargy and fatigue that comes with eating many starchy and high fat foods.
