Lymphatic Drainage at the Brain Spa: What to Expect

Boa Max 2

The lymphatic system is a network of tissues, organs, and vessels that carry lymph throughout the body. The lymph system is a major part of the body’s immune system. Its primary role is to help rid the body of toxins and waste material. When the lymph system is sluggish and not functioning properly it can result in excess weight, skin conditions, fatigue, headaches, and more.

When our lymph system is sluggish it can result in low energy, brain fog, cellulite, and excess body weight. Supporting the lymphatic system is key to a healthy immune system and optimal health.
