Cleanse From Within

This is a full-body technique that uses gentle yet firm pressure and rhythmic strokes to direct and encourage the flow of lymph fluids, promoting faster removal of excess interstitial fluid, as well as reducing muscle and neural tension and toxins in your body. Lymphatic drainage techniques are among the most scientifically documented, gentle and efficient hands-on therapeutic tools practiced today. 

Our functional method differs from others due to its neuro-muscle stimulation technique focused on improving muscular pumping function, making the lymphatic drainage more effective and sustainable. 

The lymphatic system absorbs fluid, macromolecules, microorganisms, toxins, waste products and foreign substances from the interstitial tissue. Numerous substances (electrolytes, proteins, hormones, toxins, debris) and immuno-competent cells pass through the regional lymph nodes, where this fluid is filtered, purified and concentrated.

The lymphatic flow can stagnate for several reasons, such as swelling, chronic inflammation, lack of physical activity, stress, fatigue, emotional shock, age, pregnancy and so on. When lymphatic circulation decreases, the regeneration of cells becomes less effective. This condition allows toxins and proteins to accumulate around the cells, causing cellular oxygenation to decrease and tissue regeneration to diminish.

Improving the flow and drainage of lymphatic system is key to keep your immune system working properly, decrease water retention, improve the general blood circulation, tissue regeneration, muscle function and your overall quality of life. In addition, it encourages your body’s parasympathetic response (rest and digest mode) which will help put you in a relaxed state of mind.
