complimentary therapies and practices
The body rids itself of toxins 4 ways: sweat, breath, urine and feces. Because of this I recommend to all of my clients that they enhance their lymphatic therapy with colonhydrotherapy, Far Infrared sauna, deep breathing, and increased water consumption. Additionally there are some practices that, when added to your routine, will aid your lymphatic system; two of these are dry brushing and rebounding.
Dry brushing is brushing the skin in a particular pattern while the skin is dry. It is thought that dry brushing helps to keep the lymph fluid moving, exfoliates the skin, helps with cellulite and invigorates the body.
A rebounder, a mini trampoline, is an important tool to help keep your lymph fluid moving. Since there is no pump to move the lymph fluid, a gentle bouncing up and down will create a G-force that, simply put, moves the lymph fluid. It has many other benefits as well.
