What is the lymphatic system?

500–600 lymph nodes in the neck, chest, underarm, groin, and abdomen comprise the lymphatic system. A healthy flow of lymph, the clear fluid produced by the nodes, works with the spleen, tonsils, thymus and adenoids. It is the body’s filter system for dangerous toxins and disease-promoting bacteria. The health of the lymphatic system is crucial to the body’s ability to heal. Lymphatic massage encourages the flow of lymph throughout the body. It supports the body’s immune system, fighting off toxins, viruses, and infection.

Lymphatic massage procedure and benefits

The focus of lymphatic massage is the upper body, including the face, neck, and underarm regions. A light application of pressure mimics the natural rhythm of the lymphatic system. The result is a simple, non-invasive encouragement of lymph flow. Developed in 1932 by Danish physiologist Emil Vodder, massage stimulation and subsequent opening of the lymphatic glands results in an increased lymph flow.

Potential benefits of this lymph drainage might include decreased joint and arthritis pain, mood and energy enhancement, less-frequent infections, improved skin conditions, possibly also alleviating migraines and menstrual cramps.
