You had me at massage...
Whether it is a sore throat, injury, swelling, etc. Lymphatic massage can be so helpful in reducing symptoms and/or a great step in preventative care.
Our lymphatic system transports lymph, which is a fluid containing ninja-like white blood cells, throughout the body. White blood cells help us fight off infection and when we help out lymphatic system out with a massage, we help increase that flow and immune function can be increased.
We will actually be trying a very gentle lymphatic self-massage in our prenatal class this week!
