The Lymphatic System acts as a detoxifying mechanism for the whole body. If the lymphatic flow is impaired through injury, infection or poor lifestyle the waste products cannot be filtered out quickly enough. A build up of toxins causes swelling at the site of injury or around the lymph nodes.
Treatment consists of a very gentle pumping pressure which stimulates the lymphatic system. All the movements start centrally in the body and move out to the extremeties. The pressure is light as the lymph vessels are just beneath the skin surface.The massage is deeply relaxing.
