Your lymphatic system is a complex network of vessels, tissues and organs in the vertebrates that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, which is a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells throughout the body and is vital part of your immune and circulatory system. It is not a closed system, which allows for fluids to be absorbed into the vessels. It protects your body from illness-causing invaders, maintains body fluid levels, absorbs digestive tract fats, removes cellular waste, fights inflammation and detoxifies the body including joints.
When this system is not properly functioning, it can cause the body and joints to be achy, fuzzy thinking, dry and itchy skin, water retention, finger to swell, fatigue, bloating, stiffness, soreness, tightness or dull ache to affected areas, limited range of motion due to swelling, poor wound healing, arthritis, sinus infection, headaches, unexplained injuries, excess weight or cellulite and over all increased pain levels.
It’s important to address the lymphatic system to remove any stagnation within the body, muscles and joints. On your initial visit, we will evaluate you to determine which method would be most effective for you and your individual needs.
