The lymphatic system is part of our circulatory system and is crucial for maintaining good health. It’s a network of blood vessels throughout our body that rid us of unwanted toxins and deliver white blood cells to protect us against viruses and pathogens. You can imagine why supporting this function would be important because it keeps our immune system healthy.
In todays world we are literally bombarded with thousands of toxins, bacteria, pathogens and chemicals everyday. More than ever being proactive about helping our body detox daily is crucial. Luckily our bodies are built like amazing machines and all the systems are in place we just have to support them.
I want to share a few easy ways to stimulate better detoxification through lymphatic drainage and the benefits.
Dry brushing – using a natural bristle brush on dry skin brush towards the heart. This can be done daily in 5 minutes or less and is a great way to stimulate the lymphatic system, improve the appearance of cellulite, help with ingrown hairs and gently exfoliate the skin.
Rebounding and exercise – Rebounding is simply bouncing on a indoor trampoline for up to 10 minutes. This and any type of workout that gets your heart pumping is a great way to support your lymphatic system.
Drink lots of water – Because our bodies are composed of mostly water you need to make sure you drink enough pure, clean water (not tap). I believe you should have a ounce for every pound you weigh daily. This may vary depending on lifestyle and where you live.
At The Spa:
Regular massages – This is a powerful way to keep yourself healthy and mobile. Getting a proffessional massage is one of the best ways to detox your tissue, stimulate your lymphatic system, relax and help relief muscle tension. For best results schedule a massage every month.
Acoustic Lymphatic Drainage– This treatment uses acoustic vibrations through a hand held device to help move lymph and reduce inflammation in the body. This treatment can be combined with massage and other therapies to facilitate healing in the body.
