Lymphatic Drainage

Your lymphatic system assists your body in removing toxins and cellular waste by circulating a nearly colorless liquid called "lymph" to glands and toxin-filtering organs. Generally, you are aware of your lymphatic system when your lymph nodes become swollen during illness. During stress, injury, or illness the flow of your lymph fluid can become compromised and, as a result, lead to a build-up of fluid leaving you feeling fatigued, constipated, arthritic and headachy along with numerous other symptoms. To restore normal lymphatic flow, a manual therapy called Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (LDT) can help bring you back to good health. LDT uses very light, slow strokes to assist in restoring proper lymphatic circulation to a sluggish lymph flow.
