Lymphatic System Overview & Benefits of Lymphatic Drainage Massage

The Lymphatic System is part of the immune system that consists of lymph vessels, lymph nodes and lymph. This system play a key role in our bodies as it keeps body fluid (known as lymph) levels balanced and defends the body against infection. 

One way to ensure our Lymph System is functioning properly is the Lymphatic Drainage Massage. Lymphatic drainage is a massage technique that stimulates the lymphatic system to work quickly by moving the lymph, which is located in your neck, armpits, and groin, to the lymph nodes throughout your body. 

This technique accelerates the process of removing the accumulated liquid between the cells and their breakdown residues, directing them to the capillary vessels and eliminating them through specific movements. Although I never included this practice in my beauty routine before, I started months ago and have seen the benefits.

Lymphatic drainage promotes the transport and removal of stagnant fluids, stimulates blood circulation and tissue regeneration, directs and increases lymphatic flow, reduces swelling and water retention, improves the immune system by eliminating toxins, minimizes the appearance of cellulite, promotes body and mental relaxation, provides an overall lightness in the body, and energizes the body. 

Many individuals report improvements in symptoms including energy, focus, reduced puffiness, and mood.

Butter & Sage's Lymphatic Drainage & Circulation Oil is highly effective in reducing swelling, strains, and sprains. It's also great for improving the appearance of cellulite and reducing swollen glands. The unique blend of essential oils in this massage oil increases the effectiveness of lymphatic drainage and regular massage. You can easily use it at home by massaging the swollen area and stroking towards the heart, starting from feet to neck.
