Did you know we have about 600 lymph nodes in our body? Our lymphatic system doesn't have its own pump, so we help it out with workouts, good nutrition, hydration, and massages. We talk a lot about lymphatic massages with our clients at Joanna Vargas Spas, and wanted to share the top questions we get about it:
Q: What is the lymphatic system and what does it do?
A: It's a network of vessels that carry a substance called lymph through your body and towards your heart. Lymph clears out lymph nodes, and helps our bodies absorb fats and maintain the balance of fluids in our blood and tissues.
Q: Why is it important to keep healthy?
A: Think about how you look when you're sick or hungover, or have eaten too much sugary food. You look puffy and washed out, like your body isn't in balance. That's because your lymphatic system isn't effectively draining tissues as it should be. Impaired lymphatic systems also lead to breakouts due to clogged pores, blackheads, and oilier skin.
Q: How does lymphatic massage help my skin?
A: Lymphatic massage will encourage healthy movement of your lymphs in the area you target, resulting in beneficial skin effects. The top skin benefits are reduced puffiness, eliminated dark circles, less breakouts, and less water retention.
