Human health remains heavily dependent on the status of the lymphatic system. Lymph is a type of the connective tissue that exists in the form of a viscous transparent liquid. Its function is to transport essential protein molecules, nutrients, toxins, and various metabolites from muscle tissue to the blood. Performing the role of a particular barrier, the lymphatic system helps the immune system prevent microbes and viruses from harming us. In addition, it signals the brain whenever the body is infected with harmful microorganisms.
When there are failures in the lymph system, the entire body is disturbed. With age, blood vessels become clogged and narrow, compromising the work of the lymph system. As the result, harmful products accumulate in cells and intercellular tissue spaces. Excess liquid cannot be effectively removed from the body and causes swelling. Moreover, local fat deposits, cellulite, acne, seborrhea, the increase in blood pressure, hormonal disorders, diet, intensive physical work, and other factors provoke impaired blood circulation and fluid drainage as well. Over time, these factors lead to serious health issues such as:
- Swollen, puffy face – in these cases, skin can gradually stretch out and get wrinkles
- Appearance of bags under the eyes
- Excess weight accumulation
- Worsening of cellulite
- Varicose disease development.
Lymphatic drainage massage is recognized as a viable method to treat these issues. By applying light pressure with the help of a special machine, we can enhance natural lymph flow and venous blood, and unclog any trapped proteins and toxins.
This treatment can be either be used to treat existing issues or for maintaining a normal metabolism in those without cosmetic problems.
