The lymphatic system is part of our immune system, and is regularly involved with the removal of viruses and bacteria from our bodies. In Autumn we are exposed to more of these viruses and bacteria and as people are usually less active and the lymphatic system becomes more sluggish, this is the prime time for these foreign bodies to ‘attack’. This is why many people become full of the cold from Autumn to Winter.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage treatments are not only relaxing and rejuvenating (a gentle, steady pressure is used) they also boost the lymphatic system, encouraging it to work harder to eliminate cold and flu viruses from your body before you come down with a cold.
It is an excellent preventative and detoxifying treatment, which boosts immunity, can increase energy, reduce swelling around hands and feet and decongest the sinuses (over a longer period of time it can have some effect on reducing cellulite).
