The Lymphatic System
The Lymphatic System is a network of tissues and organs that is responsible for cleansing and nourishing your body, removing waste from the cells and delivering nutrients via the circulating lymph.
The lymphatic system is known as one of the two circulatory systems of the body, however, it lacks a "heart" for pumping the lymph. Due to that, the lymphatic system relies mainly on muscle contraction, joints movement and blood circulation to flow the lymph throughout the body.
Its main functions are:
- Collect, filter and eliminate/destroy toxins, microorganisms, dead cells, fat cells, and others
- Deliver nutrients to your organs
- Move liquid throughout the body
- Fight infections
Although being a highly important system, we often do not move our bodies enough to fully stimulate the lymph flow and enjoy its full benefits. Or even when we do, it's common to have liquid retention in certain areas of our bodies.
First created in the 1930s, Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) evolved considerably since, becoming an advanced Lymphatic Massage technique that naturally stimulates the lymphatic flow through the body (especially from accumulated areas) into the Lymph Nodes, completing its cleansing and nourishing function.
Lymphatic Massage (formerly known as MLD) is an ADVANCED and NATURAL technique that helps your body stay healthy by detoxing, eliminating waste and fighting infections while improving your body curves by removing the accumulated fluid.
