Recently, there’s been many more trends focused on lymphatic drainage circulating on social media, most notably on Tiktok. Gua Shas, facial massagers, and dry brushing have become the new health craze. If you’ve noticed the fad, you may have wondered– what exactly is lymphatic health, and why is it suddenly so popular?
First, let’s take a second to understand the lymphatic system and how it works.
The lymphatic system is a network of vessels, nodes, and organs. It’s the body’s drainage system, and it removes waste, toxins, and excess fluids from the tissues. The lymph fluid that the system moves is a colorless, watery fluid that moves white blood cells to your organs and carries cellular waste away. The lymphatic system is crucial to our immune system. It removes toxins and fights infections, and lymph nodes remove impurities from the lymphatic fluid. It’s one of your body’s “silent heroes”– it’s critical for your health, but it’s not often spoken about or acknowledged unless things go wrong.
The trends on social media mainly focus on lymphatic drainage, which consists of different therapies and techniques to stimulate the flow of lymphatic fluid within the body. However, trends like Gua Sha or dry brushing have been around for centuries in systems like traditional Chinese medicine, naturopathy, and Ayurveda.
However, there are many more aspects to lymphatic health and how it can affect your overall health. Lymphatic health could be the missing key in your medical mystery to why you’re not healing from your chronic conditions.
