We all know that the lymphatic system is essential for our immune system in protecting us from bacterial infections, but did you also know that the main purpose of this secondary circulatory system, in addition to protecting our body, is to aid tissue repair?
The lymphatic vessels carry cells that aid the immune system in identifying and attacking bacteria or viruses. They do not have the heart to pump them around, so it relies on your movements (such as exercise) to create a pumping mechanism. This allows fluid to be pumped through your lymphatic vessels, which flush out toxins and other waste products like carbon dioxide. Waste products are moved into veins where your liver will filter them before being moved into kidneys and out of the body as urine. Lymphatic vessels are also used to return excess fluid to the bloodstream, which helps prevent swollen tissues.
However, sometimes your lymphatic system can become congested or blocked due to an injury or infection that has not healed correctly. This build-up of fluid prevents it from doing its job perfectly and can even lead to different conditions.
To avoid this, you should consider booking yourself for a lymphatic massage treatment at Rapid Physiocare to help break up this congestion and start the healing process again. Here are reasons why you should get a lymphatic massage in Singapore at Rapid Physiocare:
1) Improves your Immunity
The lymphatic system is closely related to the immune system, so having regular lymphatic massage treatments can improve how well your body can fight infection.
2) Prevents swelling
The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system, so any problems can lead to swelling in some parts of the body. This is because the fluid builds up, which causes it to swell. By draining your lymphatic vessels regularly, you effectively reduce how much liquid will build up and therefore reduce swelling.
3) Helps Tissue Repair
When you injure yourself, whether on the inside or outside of your body, your lymphatic vessels are used to carry cells that help tissue repair once they reach their destination. If there is an injury, but there is no efficient way for these cells to get there, it slows down how quickly your body can repair itself. This means you are more likely to suffer from long-term effects of the injury, such as scar tissue build-up, for example. Getting regular lymphatic massages keeps your lymphatic vessels clear, which allows these cells easier access to injured areas so that they can start repairing them sooner.
4) Prevents infection
Your lymphatic system is also responsible for carrying white blood cells through your body, which identify and attack any bacteria or viruses that have entered your body. When this secondary circulatory system becomes congested, it prevents some of these crucial cells from reaching the site of infection in time, so your body cannot fight it off effectively on its own. You, therefore, become more susceptible to infections because it takes longer for your body to fight them off on its own.
5) Decreased swelling in the future
When your lymphatic system is congested, it can lead to some parts of your body becoming swollen or enlarged. If you have a regular lymphatic massage treatment, this congestion is broken up and removed, which helps prevent these areas from swelling up again in the future.
6) Improved Circulation
The lymphatic vessels work alongside the blood vessels to help improve circulation and remove waste products such as carbon dioxide and other toxins through your kidneys and liver. Still, sometimes they become blocked, which prevents fluid from moving around correctly. By removing any blockages to these vessels by massaging them, you effectively improve how quickly toxins are removed from your body, which helps keep things working smoothly and improves your overall health and well-being.
If you have some of these symptoms, book an appointment to see one of our specialist lymphatic massage therapists at Rapid Physiocare to get the treatment you deserve.
