17 Dec Lymphatic Massage for Hormone Balance and Pain Relief
As many of you know, massage is commonly used for pain relief
What you may not know is that it can help our body detoxify and boost the immune system. Lymphatic massage in particular has the ability to do this by manipulating the flow of lymph in the lymphatic system.
The majority of our lymph system sits just below the surface of the skin, but you can also find it throughout our entire body – even surrounding our organs! The lymph system’s impact is so far reaching that many don’t even realize that minor aches and pains, low energy or susceptibility to illness and much more may be due to a sluggish lymph system.
Approximately two liters of lymph fluid flow are collected and returned back into blood circulation every day.
Lymphatic massage increases this flow thereby improving your body’s ability to detoxify. Through the lymph system’s ability to detoxify; lymphatic massage can improve sleep, energy, vitality, and hormonal balance. It also has been shown to lower cortisol levels, AKA stress!
