The lymphatic system consists of lymphatic vessels, lymph nodes, and what are known as lymphoid organs. The thymus, spleen, tonsils, respiratory organs, and the bone marrow are all part of the lymphoid organ system.
Unlike the circulatory system in which the heart acts as a pump, the lymphatic system has no pump but relies on smooth muscle contraction, manual muscle actions (daily activity and exercise), intestinal peristalsis, and correct breathing using the diaphragm.
The lymphatic system is the garbage disposal system of the body. It assists in transporting and removing waste, toxins and unwanted materials from the tissues in order to maintain homeostasis, keep the immune system functioning well and ensure fats are being utilised.
Lymphatic drainage Massage along with with some dietary changes and movement of the body, can greatly assist in moving stagnant fluids from the body and greatly improve ones health and vitality.
Symptoms that may indicate a compromised lymphatic system include:
- Morning stiffness - Fatigue - Itchy and dry skin - Breast tenderness - Fluid retention - Swollen feet and hands - Brain fog - Stubborn weight - Neck pain and headaches - Cellulite - Painful and hard lumps in the neck, groin, armpits and even breasts. - Pain to touch in the upper abdominal area - Constipation, bloating and digestive discomfort - Chronic sinus infections
If you feel like your lymphatic system could do with a little TLC, book a lymphatic drainage Massage at SouQi, let us assist you back to wellness.
Lymphatic massage is a gentle, rhythmical massage treatment performed by a specially trained lymphatic massage therapist to stimulate the circulation of lymph fluid around the body.
This physical stimulation helps to rapidly speed up the removal of wastes and toxins from a sluggish lymphatic system. Lymphatic massage can also aid in the prevention of swelling after injury or surgery. It may even provide a significant boost to your immune system.
Soulqi practitioners Adele and Matt are both qualified in Lymphatic Drainage massage.
