- Helps remove cellular waste
- Aids in the drainage of lymphatic system
The lymphatic system consists of a myriad of delicate vessels found in almost every tissue of the body that contains blood vessels. These vessels perform essential functions, including the transportation of nutrients from the small intestine into the interstitial space and the removal of waste products from cellular metabolism. A vast array of materials must be transported by this system through small movements such as the pressure changes that occur during breathing and pulsations from arterial circulation. Consequently, efficient lymphatic system drainage is helpful to promoting overall health.
