The lymph system in our body is our “rubbish-removal-system”. When we carry too much rubbish, too many toxins and waste products and/or do not exercise our body sufficiently to flush these out – we begin to feel tired easily, we may feel exhausted, don’t have a lot of energy and become prone to catching colds easily.
In times like these, lymph drainage is very helpful. The Lymphatic System has filter stations much like sponges, called “Lymph Nodes”. The lymph fluid flows through these and the nodes retain “bits” that need to be dealt with and broken down, e.g. bacteria, waste products etc. When the nodes become congested, they need to be cleared. In the laundry we would squeeze a sponge to clean it.
