Best Lymphatic Drainage Routine For Face + Body (WITHOUT Expensive Tools) w/ Leah Levitan
Listen now
Many health experts swear that to be truly healthy, you’ve got to “move the lymph” using some sort of lymphatic drainage routine – often with expensive tools or techniques. The hope is that you’ll somehow clear infections, lose the bloat, and clean out toxins. While yes, lymphatic drainage is important, it’s not a miraculous solution. The type of lymphatic drainage routine you choose and when you do it is pretty important (especially if you’re dealing with chronic illness, active rashes, or coming down with something). So many illnesses are impacted by the lymphatic system which is why doing something to support moving the lymph is important. That’s why addressing the lymphatic system and adding lymphatic drainage massage to your routine can be so helpful – AND deeply calming for your nervous system. But a lot of what you learn online and from influencers about a good lymphatic drainage routine is inaccurate so I invited today’s guest on the show to share a better approach!  We’re going to talk about the whole lymph system, lymphatic drainage, and easy-to-do lymphatic massages to do at home!
