Spring Cleaning for Your Body

Spring Cleaning For Your Body

 

Even though spring is sluggish to come around, it doesn't mean you should feel sluggish too. A little spring cleaning for your body can go a long way. Our bodies are exposed to toxins everyday in addition to the waste products they produce on a daily basis. Your lymphatic fluid system works with your cardiovascular circulatory system to flush out toxins and carry immune cells throughout the body to help defend against infections. If your lymph fluid circulation gets lethargic, toxins can accumulate and immune cells may not get carried to the areas of the body where they're needed.

Since the lymph system doesn't have a big central pump like the heart to keep things moving, it has to rely on gravity, exercise, breathing ... and massage. So if you haven't been as good as you should about your exercise, diet and "me time" routine (it happens to the best of us!), that can affect how you feel, causing aches, pains and swelling (lymph edema). It can also cause deterioration in organs and glands like the thymus that are vital players in your immune system.

With massage, the rhythmic strokes and pressure applied to muscles, tissues and organs during massage therapy help stimulate the circulatory system. It works sort of like a sponge: When pressure is applied to the tissue and fat, toxins are literally "squeezed" out from in between the muscle fibers and cells. They're released into the circulatory system for easier elimination.

It's easy to see why detoxification is important to avoiding illness and chronic health conditions. So if you're not feeling your best or haven't been as good about your diet and exercise routine lately, try a massage to get back on track. Remember to drink a glass or two of pure water after massage to help the body flush out toxins more rapidly.
