Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

  • Lymph vessels carry 75% of the waste generated by the cells of our body.
  • In our body, there is 50% more lymph than blood.
  • The lymphatic system is the main part of the immune system.

One of the main functions of the lymphatic system is to restore the body, maintain water balance, control fat accumulation and heal wounds.

If the lymph for some reasons begins to circulate poorly, the vital restorative functions of the body deteriorate. This can lead to pathological accumulation of water, the formation of excess fat cells, the emergence of cellulite, tissue wasting, emergence of stretch marks, and limb swelling.

History
