What is Lymphatic Drainage
Lymphatic drainage is a method that improves health and free-flowing lymphatic system, which plays a crucial role in removing toxins from healthy cells and tissues and excess fluid, waste materials and dead blood cells. Being part of the immune system, the lymphatic system fights infections, destroys pathogens and filters waste. A Los Angeles lymphatic drainage procedure can enhance the functioning of the lymphatic system and other systems in the body like circulatory, respiratory and endocrine.
Lymphatic drainage has been known to help lessen against catching a cold, among other health benefits. It boosts the natural drainage of the lymph with certain pressure and circular motions to stimulate the lymph flow. When you increase the lymph flow, you also bump up the function of the immune system.

A vacuum therapy manipulates certain parts of the skin and influences it with negative pressure. The procedure improves the circulation of liquids. The key is not to use too much pressure or irks injuring the skin leading to bruises.
