Did you know that over 80% of Americans will experience back pain at some point in their lives? Whether sharp and sudden or dull and constant, back pain is one of the leading causes of disability worldwide, and one of the top reasons for missed work as well as visits to the doctor's office.
Tomorrow, March 20th, is the Spring Equinox, when we have exactly 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night. With the return of longer days and stronger sunlight, many of us are filled with extra energy.
It's been a long time coming, but the weather forecast seems to finally be showing a slow warm-up to some spring-like weather. After a cold winter, there’s nothing like those first moments of spring, when you can open the windows to let fresh air into your house and sweep out the accumulated dust of months of enclosure. If you’ve ever wondered if there were something you could do for your body that would help accomplish that same thing, consider lymphatic drainage.
The lymphatic system is our bodies’ cleansing system, naturally filtering the toxins from our bodies. Lymphatic drainage is a gentle treatment designed to support and improve the flow of the lymphatic fluid along its natural channels in the body. With gentle, repetitive movements, the therapist encourages the lymph flow, working with the natural rhythms in order to filter and process a higher volume of lymphatic fluid for the next day or two after the session.
Because of the lymphatic system’s importance in our immune response, lymphatic therapy can be beneficial during a change of seasons, when we are often susceptible to illness. It is also an excellent preventive treatment, helping to rebalance the nervous system and alleviating feelings of stress and strain.
When our immune system is balanced, supported, and healthy, we are better able to face the challenges of our daily lives. Lymphatic drainage is a great way to boost our immune systems and give our bodies a ‘spring cleaning’. Here's hoping that spring will arrive in Wisconsin soon!
