Lymphatic flow can stagnate for many reasons, such as chronic inflammation, stress, lack of physical activity, age, and poorly fitted undergarments worn for an excessive amount of time. When lymphatic circulation slows, the regeneration of cells become less effective and causing decreased cellular oxygenation and tissue regeneration to diminish. Circulation of the lymph system is crucial to remove toxins, making the lymphatic drainage especially effective in tissue regeneration. Fats are evacuated through the lymphatic vessels. These vessels are located in virtually every area of the body where fats may accumulate. The functioning of the immune system is stimulated through increased lymph flow. Chronic pain is often reduced as the drainage alleviates tissue fluid stagnation and possibly inhibits pain receptors. Muscle spasms are often decreased as in many cases constipation is also relieved. Lymphatic drainage should never cause pain. However if the client is experiencing pain there may be a need for the therapist to refer client to a doctor . Only a physician is qualified to make a diagnosis therefore lymphatic practitioners are not permitted to diagnose. We prefer to give Jade Therapy treatment after Thermography sessions at In Harmony.
