The lymphatic system is a one-way drainage system that has four major roles:
1. Maintain fluid levels
2. Absorb digestive fats
3. Protect your body from foreign invaders such as viruses, bacteria, parasites, and other pathogens
4. Transport and remove cellular waste products
Trauma to the lymphatic system either through surgery, injury, or illness can inhibit the lymphatic system from working efficiently. With lymphatic drainage we can stimulate and aid the lymphatic system to decrease swelling, pain, and improve healing time. Lymphatic massages are a must have during your post-op recovery, and they also provide relief from chronic ailments such as migraines, sinus congestion, pain/inflammation and so much more.
