A first-of-its-kind guide that outlines and explains the health-promoting properties of lymphatic massage, featuring beautifully illustrated, five-minute self-massage sequences anyone can do at home.
Thanks to the astonishing results it provides—glowing skin, a flatter stomach, enhanced immunity, and full-body detox—the practice of manually stimulating the lymphatic system has become one of the most popular wellness practices today. Lymphatic drainage works because the lymphatic system—a complex geography of rivers that snake throughout the body just beneath the surface of the skin—connects every other bodily system. When lymph flows, everything else flows, too.
In this first-of-its-kind guide, veteran lymphatic drainage practitioner, educator, and advocate Lisa Levitt Gainsley explains how to maintain lymphatic health, sharing the five-minute self-massage techniques she originally developed for her high-powered Los Angeles clientele. These simple sequences are tailored to address a number of specific and common issues: bloating, headaches, digestive problems, immune health, anxiety, weight loss, acne, inflammation, and more.
Whether you just want to look and feel your best or are facing a more serious health issue such as cancer treatment or recovery, The Book of Lymph offers educational and practical instruction to help you cultivate a body free of pain and lethargy, activate a calmer state of being, and boost overall glow—in just five minutes a day.
