Here in Cape Town we are feeling the winter chill and we are thinking of comfort food, getting cosy and preparing for “hibernation”…hot soups, stews a crackling fire and soft wool booties.
Our bodies have a natural tendency to want to take things a bit slower as we move into winter. Have you noticed this for yourself?
Perhaps constant peak performance, has completely shifted your perception away from yourself.
A great way to correct the feeling of constant ‘fight or flight’, become aware of your body, deeply relax and also boost your immune system is a professional Lymph Drainage Massage.
A gentle treatment (with profound health benefits) that transports body, mind and soul into a deep and calm space.
One of my all time favourite treatments! Especially the Dr Vodder method – tranquil, soft and flowing movements with the clinical research to back the treatment.
5 Benefits to LYMPH DRAINAGE TREATMENT:
Organ function harmony.
Increased immune system.
Faster detoxification and regeneration of the body.
Deep relaxation to aid insomnia, depression, stress, loss of vitaliy.
The correct functioning of your lymphatic system is a very important factor to your experience of harmony in life.
Unlike the circulatory system, that uses the pumping of the heart to circulate its blood flow, lymph vessels rely upon hundreds of tiny muscular units (lymphangions) contracting throughout the body to propel the lymph.
These contractions enable the lymph vessels to transport numerous substances (i.e. proteins, toxins, hormones, fatty acids, immune cells) to the lymph nodes that can then process them.
The action of these muscular units can be hindered or stopped due to:
fatigue, stress, lack of physical activity, emotional shock, cold temperatures, infections, age, chemicals or food additives.
When the lymph circulation stagnates, fluids, proteins, cells and toxins accumulate and the cellular function is significantly compromised. Opening the way to many physical ailments and faster cellular degeneration.
The answer is simple. Take the time to prioritise your wellness and book for a relaxing Lymph Drainage Treatment today, one hour out of your day.
You deserve some ‘me time’ too.
