Happy Sunday, my natural beauties! Summer is quickly approaching to give us the yearly dose of Vitamin D that we oh, so crave. I have friends & loved ones living on the east coast that I know have been waiting for this time of year desperately! Florida is blessed with sun love all year long & but now and again, I too can feel the effects of the season's blues.
Today I want to talk about the effects lymph can have on your mood & essence. Lymphatic Drainage does not just work wonders for the physical body; it can also help you achieve a more energetic & vibrant spirit. It's true! When we move stagnant lymph throughout the body, we create energetic flow. Think about how great you feel post-workout or after dancing at a concert! You get a sense of euphoria from all that energy moving around. Flow is what the mind & body needs.
Now let's go back to the body. Many of us are attracted to Lymphatic Drainage for its ability to assist in the reduction of cellulite. As women, I think sometimes we can get a little bit self-conscious about cellulite & as the hotter seasons approach, we want to feel & look like our best selves all around. Contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not genetic. You CAN get rid of it if that is a personal health goal of yours. The key here is to move the stagnation in that area of the body to help reduce it.
According to The Book of Lymph by Lisa Levitt Gainsley, we must create movement in the areas that are the connecting hinges of the body to allow the lymph to flow. Think of the space between the collarbones & neck, fleshy part of the elbows, behind the knees, & groin. Lisa calls these the "rivers of immunity." After all, our bodies consist of 70% water & contain the fluid paths that keep our systems healthy & functioning correctly!
Through the principles of self-massage, you can work wonders. With that said, I want to propose a challenge. I will be taking on a seven-day challenge of feeling like my most vibrant self using our Lymphatic Drainage Body Tool. This time not just to achieve a beautiful, sculpted & healthy appearance but also to relieve pregnancy fog & keep a clear head! Who's with me?
