People with inflammation acne and atopic (genetic) eczema dermatitis are prone to constant lymph node swelling this inflammation reaction causes the skin to become red, hot and itching. This disease causes constant scratching the skin, depleting skin barriers and creating more of a chronic inflammation, stress levels rise causing another acute reaction.
lymphatic drainage removes the build up of irritation under the skin, and by clearing the lymph nodes that are swollen, can relieve the itching, redness and heat, as the redness and heat are reduced itching dramatically subsides, nutrients can start to work on skin restoration and soften lymph node fibrosis.
Working on the face,neck and head can also influence lymphatic vessels and nodes in and around the brain. Over the last number of years patients have been returning to have facial lymphatic drainage for brain injuries, intercranial swelling associated with accidents, concussions or tumour’s non cancerous or cancerous.
Ongoing sinus issues relating to and as a side effect from intercranial swelling, the none invasive treatments clears lymphatic overflow, reduction of pressure that can build up causing sinus and high blood pressure. An insert from the article link below indicates the sinus interaction with the brain lymphatics.
“The major pathway taught in medical school is that waste around cells goes into cerebrospinal fluid—the clear fluid that bathes the brain and spinal cord—and from there gets absorbed directly into the blood through structures called arachnoid granulations. Reich also explained that some fluid is understood to drain through tiny pores in our skulls, mostly at the top of our noses, and then get absorbed into the lymphatic system through the mucous membranes of the nose, and then, from there, go down into the lymph nodes of the neck.”
