The Lymphatic System

Updated: Apr 29, 2023

What is the lymphatic system? We don’t often talk about the lymphatic system and why it is important for our health. However, if you are planning on making changes to your body, it is essential to understand what the role of the lymphatic system is and how it affects our overall health.

The lymphatic system consists of a network of vessels, organs and tissues that carry a fluid called lymph. The lymph moves throughout the body though muscle contractions and carries waste products, bacterias and cells debris back to the blood circulation.

Here are some interesting facts about the lymphatic system:

  • If the lymphatic system stopped working, we would die within 24-48 hours.

  • Lymph nodes are about the size and shape of a pea, and there are hundreds of them throughout the body. They are filter and take out pathogens and clear out unhelpful debris.

  • The lymphatic system is bigger than the vascular system and moves about twice the amount of fluid on a daily basis.

  • It’s unidirectional. The lymph moves in one direction.

  • The lymphatic system is part of the immune system.

  • When the body is fighting an infection the lymphatic system communicates to us by increasing the size of the lymph nodes.

  • The lymphatic vessels are separated from the blood vessels but they are connected.

  • The lymphatic system relies on your muscles, movement and gravity to move the fluid around.

  • Lymph starts its life as plasma, the watery component that makes up over half our blood volume.

  • The digestive system has millions of lymphatic vessels that absorb the fats and fatty acids that we ingest and transports them directly to the heart where they enter the circulatory system to use as fuel.

How does Endosphères Therapy help improve lymphatic drainage?

The mechanism of action of Compressive Microvibration helps to boost the lymphatic system and in doing this it repairs itself. This makes it a great treatment for, poor circulation, heavy legs and fluid retention.

Endosphères Therapy produces a vibration and pressure combination that performs what we describe as “vascular gymnastics” on the body. This ‘workout’ promotes the drainage of fluids, whilst re-compacting the skin tissues. As the lymphatic system does not have a pump it relies on the mechanical movement of the body to “squeeze” lymph around the system. Endospheres enhances this movement helping to encourage the drainage of fluids. In addition, there is an improvement of the microcirculation, the reduction of inflammation and pain, and muscle toning.
