Lymph Drainage


imagesWhat is the lymphatic system?

The lymphatic system protects the body from infection and disease. It is made up of lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, lymphocytes and lymph. Lymph is the interstitial fluid that flows through the vessels.

Lymph is propelled through the lymphatic system when we move and breathe. For people that don’t move enough throughout the day, or get too little exercise may be leaving their immune system compromised.
