The dance between the skin and lymphatic system is one of the most important relationships of the bodies health.
Your Outer Skin Reflects the Health of Your Whole Body!
Did you know that 80% of what your skin looks like on the outside is determined by the function of the lymphatic system?
As the outer skin protects the body, the lymphatic system lies just below the skins surface, nourishing and detoxifying every cell and fiber of our being! It does the same for the inner skin which covers and lines all surfaces of every vessel, tube, artery and organ.
The lymphatic system is responsible for supporting almost every function of the body.
It is essential to our health and plays a starring role in distributing and regulating life-giving fluids. With approximately 600 to 700 lymph nodes, connected by vessels, the system is a network of rivers, transporting fluids and nutrients through the body and comprises the body’s largest circulatory system (2x as big as our venous system) embodying the immune system!
When the lymph flow slows, the skin will appear aged and toxins will build up. Since the lymph moves against gravity, it is common for the lymph and veins to congest, yielding an unsightly appearance in the feet, legs, thighs, hips, belly and arms and its effects are witness in swelling, cellulite and varicose veins.
Receiving a Lymphatic Cupping Massage acts as detoxification process that soothes and regenerates the body on the most profound level while empowering it’s “natural” self healing mechanism!
Cupping stretches open the lymphatic vessels which increases the movement of lymph locally and systemically and greatly improves, empowering the system with cumulative treatments.
Healing After Surgery
Lymphatic drainage using massage cupping can greatly benefit pre- and post-operative conditions and helps to speed regeneration of tissues and cells. Post surgery, a person should wait at least 6 weeks before getting a lymphatic cupping session, or until a doctor clears the patient to receive one.
