Lymphatic Drainage 101
I’m sure you have heard the saying Lymphatic drainage, but do you know the health and skin benefits behind it? Well, we are here to tell you!
WHAT IS THE LYMPHATIC SYSTEM?
The lymphatic system is a crucial part of our immune system, made up of vessels, tissues, and organs to help our body maintain fluid levels, defend & prevent infection, and deliver nutrients while carrying away toxins and waste.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
The lymphatic system helps protect us from infection and disease. It accelerates the absorption & transportation of lymphatic fluids, which contain toxins, bacteria, viruses, & proteins. It enhances circulation in your face by delivering oxygen around the skin and pushing waste and toxins out of the lymph nodes.
Gua Sha is one of the most effective and easiest ways to pump our lymph fluid.
30% of our lymph nodes are concentrated on the head and neck
Some of these skin benefits include:
- Clear chronic acne
- Reduce puffiness
- Improve circulation
- Lighten dark spots
- Reduce under-eye circles
- Lift & firm the face
