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.
