The proper functioning of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to detoxify and regenerate tissues. The lymphatic system filters out toxins and foreign substances, recovers crucial substances that have escaped from the blood, and helps maintain a healthy immune system. If the lymph stagnates due to injury or infection, toxins accumulate and cellular metabolism is significantly compromised. This results in an increase in acid and toxins within the tissues causing pain, tension, and edema. In order to promote and restore proper tissue healing and pain-free movement, these substances, along with the edema, need to quickly be removed from the interstitial fluid. Lymphatic balancing was designed to treat excess fluid, swelling, or lymphatic stagnation. This gentle, hands on approach can be applied to a wide range of clientele and outcomes include the restoration of proper joint biomechanics, functional range of motion and optimal postural alignment.
