Your immune system is your defense against illness as you go through your daily life. When you are bombarded by the elements, toxins, germs and other possible invaders that can affect your health, your immune system goes to work. Your white blood cells work hard to defend you, as well as your lymph nodes and the lymphatic fluid that travels through your body. However, your immune system may not always be up to par. This especially holds true if you have lymphedema, a condition in which there is a buildup of lymphatic fluid beneath your skin.
Lymphedema can produce swelling that is uncomfortable and unsettling. You could be born with this problem and be prone to chronic bouts of swelling or it can occur after certain treatments and procedures. If lymph nodes are removed or have been damaged by illness, lymphedema is common. To address lymphedema or to simply enhance your immune system, consider lymphatic drainage treatments.
A Look at Lymphatic Drainage Treatments
Lymphatic drainage treatments consist of a type of massage that was developed in Germany. The treatment session is relaxing and soothing. The massage is designed to restore the proper flow of lymphatic fluid through your body when there has been a blockage or buildup of fluid. The best results are usually achieved through a series of sessions spaced a set amount of time apart. The sessions tend to last about 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the situation. In addition to improving your immune system, this treatment improves overall health and wellness.
