1. What is Lymph? Lymph is a watery fluid that circulates through the body through a system of lymph vessels. One of its primary jobs is to remove bacteria and certain proteins from the tissues. If the lymphatic system is damaged due to surgery, radiation, trauma or illness, swelling can occur in the affected area of the body. In addition, it can become difficult for needed nutrients to be carried by the blood to the body’s tissues. When proper lymph drainage doesn’t occur, cells cannot receive nourishment and may also be exposed to toxins; disease can result.
2. Is Lymph Drainage a deep massage? No. Lymph Drainage is a very light massage that helps with improving the flow of the lymph system.
