Improve Brain Health, Prevent and Treat Autoimmune Diseases through MLD/Lymphatic Massage

"Missing link found between brain and immune system
Newly discovered vessels beneath skull link brain and immune system/ lymphatic system"

In a stunning discovery that overturns decades of textbook teaching, researchers have determined that the brain is directly connected to the immune system/lymphatic system by vessels previously thought not to exist in the brain. This discovery might also explain links between poor health, autoimmune diseases, and brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson's.

It makes sense to receive MLD/Lymphatic massage on a regular basis in order to boost your immune system, thereby helping your body AND your brain to stay healthy!

The lymphatic system is responsible for destroying  viruses, bacteria, cancer cells, toxins, cellular debris, and foreign substances in the body. 

Lymph fluids contain T-cells, the so called "killer cells", plus a variety of lymphocytes/white blood cells that make up an important part of our defense system. They circulate once every 24 hours through our body, picking up and destroying viruses, bacteria, cancer cells, toxins, cellular debris, and foreign substances in the body. HOWEVER, Manual Lymphdrainage (MLD) can speed this up to 15 times as fast. That means the human body's "police”, our immune system, flows through the body 15 times more often, and could potentially prevent and ammeliorate autoimmune diseases and other illness.

This is not a substitute for medical treatment, but maybe diseases like Alzheimer's or Parkinson's could be prevented in future by adding MLD (Lymphatic Drainage Massage) to a healthy life style. 

"Alzheimer’s, Autism, MS and Beyond

The unexpected presence of the lymphatic vessels raises a tremendous number of questions that now need answers, both about the workings of the brain and the diseases that plague it. For example, take Alzheimer’s disease. “In Alzheimer’s, there are accumulations of big protein chunks in the brain,” Kipnis said. “We think they may be accumulating in the brain because they’re not being efficiently removed by these vessels.” He noted that the vessels look different with age, so the role they play in aging is another avenue to explore. And there’s an enormous array of other neurological diseases, from autism to multiple sclerosis, that must be reconsidered in light of the presence of something science insisted did not exist."

Clinical studies show that Manual Lymphdrainage can speed up healing after surgery by almost five hundred percent (500%), getting rid of cellular debris and inflammation:

Receive MLD on a regular basis in order to boost your immune system!

MLD should always be performed by a certified Lymphedema Therapist. Please contact me for more information at or text/call (310) 666-2965.
