Hundreds of lymph nodes make up your lymphatic system, an essential part of your immune system.
The lymphatic system helps to drain lymph (a fluid that contains white blood cells) back into your bloodstream.
The Lymphatic system is also responsible for transporting waste out of your body and it helps to protect the body against infections.
When there is any blockage in your lymphatic system, fluid can start to build up and lymphatic drainage massage is highly effective for helping to get things moving again.
What you may not know is that lymphatic build up can also result in puffiness in the face, not to mention a dull complexion, but in recent years lymphatic drainage massage has become popular to help combat this.
Some people have even dubbed it “a non surgical facelift” and are we sure we have your attention now!
In this article, we will talk about the excellent benefits of lymphatic drainage massage as well as share how you can do it yourself at home!
