The main role of your lymphatic system is to strengthen and support the immune system by eliminating dead cells, bacteria and toxins from your body. If for some reason, your lymphatic system isn't functioning as it should, this could cause a blockage of toxins that need to be expelled from the body. A lymphatic massage, or lymphatic drainage, helps move the blockage along so that proteins, fats and vitamins can travel freely throughout the body.
