Benefits Of Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
Lymphatic drainage is an important tool to keep the lymphatic system in good condition for optimum health. The main task of the lymphatic system is to keep the immune system operating well while cleaning and nourishing all the cells in the body, no matter what their function. Unlike the blood circulatory system, the lymphatic system has no "heart" to pump fluids back through the body. Lymphatic drainage techniques can counteract the effects of adverse lifestyle choices and environmental pollutants that can compromise the immune system.
Importance of a Well-Functioning Lymphatic System
The lymphatic system is made up of organs, ducts, nodes and vessels and is considered a vital part of the circulatory system. The clear fluid called lymph is made up of white blood cells including lymphocytes which help the body’s immune system defend against harmful bacteria and cancer cells. Lymph nodes which are found in the neck, abdomen, groin and armpit manufacture the cells that allow the body to remove cancer and fight off infections. Swelling of the lymph nodes, commonly called “swollen glands,” occurs when the lymph nodes manufacture more white blood cells to fight infection.
The use of lymphatic topical preparations such as Pascoe Lymphdaral Cream, Biomed International products, Nestmann Remedies and UNDA compounds are recommended for clients with lymphatic system problems. These homeopathic preparations eliminate stored toxins to improve the immune system and treat disorders caused by a poorly functioning lymphatic system. Lymphatic massage is another technique used to treat the lymphatic system. For women who have had breast cancer surgery, lymphatic massage is recommended once each day, four or five times a week for two to four weeks. Each session can last up to an hour.

When it comes to decongestive lymphatic drainage massages, these products are the safest and most efficient you will ever find. Lympha Press compression therapy provides you with much better means to medically manage lymphoedema. Patients find therapy times to be pleasant and relaxing.
Lympha Press® is an Invigorating Compression Treatment System
The system consists of a pump that supplies air to the garments over areas where the body is to be treated. The Lympha Press® follows a special sequence when pumping air within the garments; it alternates undulations of compression with short moments of pause and refill. This process is like a “milking” motion that massages the affected body part.
Doctors all over the world understand the important role of the lymphatic system in preventive health care. They are aware how lymphatic function affects the digestive, nervous, and immune systems and every other system in the body. It is very important for the detoxification of the body. Many firmly believe that poor lymph health is the underlying reason for various health conditions, from cellulite to cancer.
