Lymph Drainage

The lymphatic system is referred to as our second circulatory system.  It is a central component of the immune system and protects the body by draining and filtering out waste.  The lymphatic system consists of a network of vessels carrying lymph, water, proteins and electrolytes from the tissue fluids to the bloodstream.  Affecting every cell and organ in the body, this system is the terrain in which our immune system functions.  The lymphatic system is most important in the elimination of toxins.  Nodes and vessels can become sluggish and clogged with bacteria and protein deposits similar to those in the vascular system.

The goal of Lymph Drainage is to get lymphatic fluid flowing optimally.  At Renew, we have found that several consecutive sessions, once or twice a week, produce the best results.  Factors that may lead to lymph congestion range from stress, lack of exercise, environmental toxins, poor diet, injury, surgery and hormonal imbalance.

Lymph Drainage has been found to be highly effective in conditions of inflammation, detoxification of heavy metals, breast lumps and congestion, fibromyaligia, allergies, lyme disease, prostate problems, chronic pain, rheumatoid arthritis, immune and fatigue syndromes.  Cellulite is most often a lymphatic condition; Lymph Drainage is believed to be one of the few techniques to reduce cellulite.

To facilitate the natural flow of lymph fluids we use infrared light technology.  This state-of-the-art non-invasive technology is a safe and effective tool for detoxification of a sluggish lymphatic system.  Balance, beauty and vitality are the goals of our treatments.
