The lymphatic system carries nutrients, distributes germ-fighting white cells, picks up any particles that are too big to be absorbed through the capillary membrane such as cell debris, fat globules and tiny protein particles. Lymph (interstitial fluid) is cleaned and filtered in the lymph nodes. Germ fighting cells gather there during illness. The filtration process prevents bacteria, cancer cells and other infectious agents from entering the blood and circulating through the system. The lymph nodes are centres for production and storage of some of the white blood cells which are important elements of the body’s immune mechanism.
In many people, the lymph system becomes sluggish and needs to be “cleaned”. Very often the lymph ducts become blocked and the lymph accumulates in the tissues. This means that the waste products are not eliminated from the cells effectively and the cells with start malfunctioning. This will also set up infection and local decay of cells. In the pelvis area of women common symptoms are pelvic congestion, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, ovarian malfunction, period pain, irregular and abnormal periods, formation of adhesions.
Possible Results with Lymphatic Drainage
CranioSacral Therapy is also known as "CST" and the emotional component is Somato Emotional Release or "SER"
CST is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functioning of a physiological body system called the craniosacral system - comprised of the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid that surround and protect the brain and spinal cord.
Using a soft touch generally no greater than 5 grams, or about the weight of a nickel, practitioners release restrictions in the craniosacral system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
CST was pioneered and developed by osteopathic physician John E. Upledger following extensive scientific studies from 1975 to 1983 at Michigan State University, where he served as a clinical researcher and Professor of Biomechanics.
By complementing the body's natural healing processes, CST is increasingly used as a preventive health measure for its ability to bolster resistance to disease, and is effective for a wide range of medical problems associated with pain and dysfunction, including:
