Spring into life

Is your body enjoying these first weeks of spring?

Are you experiencing allergy symptoms?

Are you planning to do a spring cleanse for your body?

Did you know that allergies are a sign of a weak immune system?

Well consider cleansing at a different level, a cellular one, from the inside out.

The proper function of the lymphatic system is critical to our body’s ability to drain stagnant fluids, detoxify, and regenerate tissues and maintain a healthy immune system.

Your immune system can be impaired by stress, lack of sleep and activity, emotional upsets, infections, age, medications, poor digestion, and chemical or food additives.

The lymphatic circulation has a slow rhythm, low velocity and low pressure.

Unlike the circulatory system, which uses the pumping of the heart to circulate blood flow, the lymph vessels rely upon hundreds of tiny muscular units (lymphangions) contracting throughout the body to propel the lymph fluid.

Using exacting anatomical science and distinctive manual process, LDT enables the practitioner to detect the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of the lymphatic flow.

To aid in restoring your immune system to optimal function, consider a Lymphatic Drainage Therapy massage.

This may be the spring that you can leave the pills behind, take a deep breath, and enjoy the season more fully.
