Tired of having a stuffy nose and dealing with it?
The video below (originally by Heather Wibbels) demonstrates how to perform a self lymph drainage massage. The technique is highly effective at relieving congestion from allergies or a cold. Wibbels explains that pressure in the head can sometimes be caused by a build-up of lymphatic fluid in the head. This light massage focuses on draining the head, as well as opening lymph nodes in the neck and behind the ears.
Your lymphatic system could benefit from lymph drainage, a healing massage you can perform on yourself, according to Massage Today. LiveScience explains the lymphatic system is made up of a network of tissues and organs that help the body rid itself of toxins and wastes. Lymphatic vessels transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, through the rest of the body. When the lymphatic system is compromised, so too is your health.
