Have you heard of the Lymphatic System? If you have, be proud! If not, we’re here to help you understand this major part of our Immune System. In simple terms, this system acts like the ‘Drain’ to our body.
It has three interrelated functions which include:
Removal of excess fluids from the body’s tissues.
Absorption of fatty acids and transportation of fat.
Production of immune cells.
The Lymphatic System works in cooperation with White Blood Cells to protect the body in many ways. These include prevention of infection by Cancer Cells, Fungi, Viruses, and other Bacteria.
As you may know, when our Lymph Nodes become swollen, unpleasant health issues tend to ensue. Common causes of swollen Lymph Nodes include Staph Infections, Infectious Mononucleosis, Neoplasm, (e.g. Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma) and metastasis of cancerous cells.
By addressing symptoms of swollen Lymph Nodes You can improve your body’s ability to protect itself. Therefore, regular Lymphatic Drainage massage helps keep you disease-free.
Lymph movement is essential to a healthy Lymphatic System. Being able to perform this function occurs with low pressure peristalsis. The involuntary, wave-like constriction and relaxation of muscles inside your body.
Our Pneumatic Compression Machine simulates this peristalsis by using repetitive inflation and deflation. (By way of an air pressure device.) This helps your body drain lymph fluids and in turn, it can produce many benefits. These include:
