Lymphatic drainage

Take care of your health with the machine for lymphatic drainage

The lymphatic system is part of the immune system of your body, and it helps fight infections. Lymph is a clear, yellowish body fluid that transports nutrients and oxygen into the cells. On its path, it collects toxins and cleanses them through lymph nodes.

Lymphatic drainage is a complex therapeutic massage that uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic moves to increase lymph flow and reduce the number of toxins in your body. The main lymph nodes are in the neck, armpits, and groin. There are more than twice as many lymph cells than blood cells in the body. However, unlike the blood that is pumped by your heart, the lymphatic system does not have a pump. Lymph is moved by the pressure in the blood vessels and the movement of your muscles.

Lymphatic drainage can have a beneficial effect on the entire health. Since lymph is of key importance for maintaining the immune system, improving circulation and drainage of lymph is good for you in different ways. It can reduce the probability of catching a cold or a virus since it helps your body fight the infection and accelerates the treatment and recovery from illnesses. It also helps with water retention in the body because its flow can be slowed down after sitting for a long time and cause swelling of the legs or fingers/toes since lymph is not "pumped". It also stimulates weight loss - if our lymphatic system accelerates, our metabolism accelerates as well. Besides all of the above, lymphatic drainage can improve the texture of your skin by reducing swelling, providing you with clean, healthy pores, and accelerating scarred tissue healing. It is also very effective in fighting cellulite.

Lymphatic drainage massage uses very light pressure and long, gentle, rhythmic movements, and soft, pulsating movements in the direction of lymph nodes. Lymphatic drainage can be performed by a therapist, but also by a lymphatic drainage machine.

A lymphatic drainage machine is a specially designed medical device with air chambers that gradually pumps air into the air chambers in rhythmic intervals. They put light pressure on the skin and the tissue beneath it following the venous and lymphatic pathways and thereby accelerate venous and lymphatic drainage. The circulation of lymph in the body is thereby stimulated and the drainage of toxins and waste products together with melted fat is accelerated. While circulating in the entire body, lymph collects waste products and moves them to the lymph nodes located in certain body zones where they are filtered. Accumulation of fluid in the intercellular spaces can make the flow of lymph through lymph channels more difficult, and consequently lead to poor tissue nutrition, accumulation of toxins, and decreased bodily defenses. Thereby, it is extremely important to achieve and maintain the stability of the lymphatic system by performing regular lymphatic drainage.

The lymphatic drainage machine has a very good effect on localized edemas, swellings, bad circulation, tired or heavy legs, problems with venous circulation and varicose veins, muscle pain, but also cellulite - any woman’s worst enemy.
