Unlike the circulatory system, which uses the pumping of the heart to circulate blood flow, lymph vessels rely on hundreds of tiny muscular units contracting throughout the body to propel lymph flow. The action of these muscular units can be hindered or stopped due to surgery, trauma, burns, infections, substantial swelling, fatigue, stress, or age. When lymph circulation stagnates, fluids, proteins, cells and toxins accumulate, and cellular functioning is significantly compromised. This may open the way to many physical ailments and hasten the aging process.
Lymphatic Drainage Therapy is a hands-on technique designed to attain and sustain proper functioning of the human fluid system. It was developed by Dr. Bruno Chilly from his award-winning research on the lymphatic system. In essence, the process works to help recirculation of body fluids, stimulate functioning of the immune system, and promote a state of relaxation and balance within the autonomic nervous system.
Some results may be:
Reduction in edemas and lymphedemas of many origins
Detoxification of the body
Regeneration of tissues and anti-aging effects
Relief of chronic inflammation and conditions such as acne, eczema and allergies
Immune system stimulation
Reduction in the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia
