I am passionate about finding different ways to help us move more and the most beneficial ways to help the body heal.
I have had the privilege of working with a client 1:1 online doing lymphatic drainage work.
It’s very simple, yet very powerful.
Something that I am trying to get away from is when our body is symptomatic (runny nose, fever, etc) that this is not a bad thing, but the wonderful genius that our body is functioning as it should and doing what it needs to to get rid of the toxins, viruses and bacteria that shouldn’t be there.
We are conditioned to believe it’s a nuisance and that we need to suppress the symptoms as quickly as possible to ‘get on with things’.
What if, instead, we rest, hydrate, nourish, honour and respect first and only if that prolongs then head to the medicine cabinet?
When we support our lymphatic system (all the time) it works much more efficiently.
If you do my Pilates classes then you will be familiar with the lymph flush that we do at the start of class – this should be done daily to help keep things moving…
Working your lymphatic system regularly helps reduce inflammation in the body which helps reduce symptoms of hay fever & allergies, reduces fat stores, and bloating, improves digestion, and moves colds, and viruses along faster…
There are a couple of caveats with lymph work.
If you have an autoimmune disease, don’t do a flush when you are in a flare – it will make things worse, the head and neck flush is still okay to do.
If you have cancer, regardless of whether you are undergoing treatment for it, you need to speak to your oncologist. Some cancers and treatments really benefit from this work, others do not. I am not a doctor so you need to speak to them.
If you have kidney issues, also speak to your doctor before doing the lymph work.
If you would like to learn more about the lymphatic system you can either book 1:1 sessions with me either in person or online – 30mins is a perfect timeframe to go through a session, with a recommendation of 1 or 2 follow-up sessions needed.
Or you could do my online self-study course where you can start immediately and have lifetime access to the content.
