The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system, comprising a network of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph: a clear, colorless fluid containing white blood cells that helps rid the body of toxins, wastes and other unwanted materials.
When our lymphatic system is not working properly, we may experience symptoms of:
- Pain, muscle soreness, swelling
- Fatigue, malaise, lethargy
- Colds, post nasal drip, sore throats and plugged ears
- Swollen and painful lymph nodes
- Puffy eyes or facial swelling
- Water retention (especially around the abdomen)
Manual lymph drainage techniques, like udvartana, use a specific amount of pressure and rhythmic movements to stimulate lymph flow. In this treatment, two ayurvedic therapists apply warm medicinal herbs, blended into a thick paste, along specific energetic and lymphatic pathways in the body. Using light strokes directionally toward the heart and abdomen, the lymph system is stimulated, facilitating the release of toxic buildup and debris in the lymph glands.
Udvartana is traditionally used for weight loss, detoxification, poor circulation, conditions of stagnate lymph, and lymphatic drainage.
