Do you ever wake up with a puffy face or look down at your ankles after a long flight and find they’ve turned into cankles? This is most likely due to your lymphatic system not flowing as well as it should be.
Your Lymphatic System is an important circulation system that carry’s ‘lymph’ through your body. Lymph is a fluid that contains white blood cells that help your body get rid of unwanted waste, toxins and fight infection.
When your lymphatic system is in top shape your body is able to fight off disease and infection and you should have minimal inflammation and swelling throughout your body. It also helps your body fight off signs of ageing.
When it’s not working as well as it should be you can often feel tired, puffy and are more likely to catch a cold or virus.
One way to make sure you’re taking good care of your lymph system is to give yourself a daily lymphatic massage. Below are some videos on how to give yourself a massage on different parts of your body. You can do that as many times a week as you like but being consistent so 2-4 times a week is the way to get the best results!
