What is the Lymph?

The lymph, like the blood, is part of the body’s internal medium. It is also called “white blood” because it comes out of the blood and goes back into the blood. The lymph arises at the tissue level from the intercellular fluid, which is a plasma emanating from the blood vessels. The composition of the lymph is very similar to that of the blood and its role, like the role of the blood, is diverse.

Factors Influencing Lymphatic Circulation

The following factors should be mentioned that contribute to lymphatic circulation:

  •         Chest aspiration caused by inhalation and exhalation; the intrathoracic pressure helps to empty the lymphatic vessels;
  •          The intra-abdominal pressure created by the contraction of the diaphragm and abdominal muscles, which compresses the Pecquet cistern and mobilizes the lymph to the thoracic duct;
  •          Gravity for the lymph from the head and neck;
  •          The lymphatic valves, similar to those from the veins, that prevent the lymph from flowing back to the periphery;
  •          The active movements of the lymphatic vessels (narrowing and dilation), which are controlled by a nervous and humoral mechanism;
  •          The skeletal muscle contraction, which is exerted by the pressure on the lymphatic vessel walls and is one of the most important factors for maintaining lymphatic circulation in cavities.

The Role of Lymph Nodes

The lymph nodes are inserted in the lymphatic vessels and have the function of stopping the invasion of the body by certain potentially harmful substances and bodies that have entered the lymphatic system, such as microbes and their toxic substances.

After a massive infection, inflammation, and even swelling of these lymph nodes, they also warn of a generalized infection, help identify the location of the infection, and actively participate in fighting microbial and toxic substances in the body. As can be seen from the description above, the lymph has a decisive role in the proper functioning of the metabolism of the human body, so human health depends on the status of these “waters”.

Maintaining Lymphatic Health

  1. Hydration: Ensure a daily intake of fluids to support the lymphatic system’s essential functions.
  2. Physical Activity: Engage in invigorating sports activities such as swimming, gymnastics, jogging, and stretching to promote lymphatic circulation.
  3. Massage Therapy: Explore a variety of massage forms, including self-massage, therapeutic massage, and our transformative lymphatic drainage massage, to accelerate lymph flow and combat water stagnation.

A sedentary lifestyle, persistent fatigue, stress, and poor dietary habits can contribute to lymphatic and venous stasis.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage: Your Path to Health

The lymphatic drainage accelerates the lymph flow 10 times. The massage removes the water that has stagnated in the interstices; this is a very easy way to combat cellulite. With a simple therapeutic massage, we can help our body to dissolve large amounts of toxins trapped in tissues, thereby strengthening the immunity of the entire system and increasing physical as well as mental well-being.
