DETOXING THE BODY AND MIND

Craniosacral and Lymphatic drainage therapist Michell See shares how her treatments help detox the body and mind and reset for the new year

How does lymphatic drainage help with detox?
The lymphatic system transports large proteins, foreign bodies, pathogenic substances (germs, toxins, etc.) and many other components through the lymphatic nodes which acts as a purification centre. The nodes break down and destroy these particles so they can eventually be flushed out of the body through the eliminary tract.
The light wave touch of lymphatic drainage with its oscillating frequency can stimulate circulation in the lymph and drain fat, fluids, and toxins away from your cells for proper elimination.

What tips do you have to cleanse your lymphatic system?
Best exercise to stimulate and cleanse your lymphatic system is swimming as the pressure of water is similar to the external pressure used in lymphatic drainage therapy. It stimulates the lymphatic circulation and enhances its cleansing function. It is important to be mindful of our water intake and lessen salt in foods and add more vegetables to our diet.

How to avoid toxins in the body?
Be mindful to the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe in. However, the most important part is our mind. When our mind is constantly stressed and overwhelmed, it becomes toxic and affects our physical body.

How does craniosacral therapy help with detox of the mind?
During craniosacral therapy, cerebrospinal fluid motion is increased, improving glymphatic flushing of the brain tissues. Adequate flushing of the brain environment is essential for brain detoxification, nutrition and normal range of function.

What suggestions do you have to destress?
Breath work, mindfulness and body awareness are all very good exercises to destress. They all help our busy minds to settle and ground our minds to the “present” time and space where everything becomes still, calm and clear.

Tips to slow down and declutter in preparation for the new year?
Self- reflection and gratitude play a big role for my own preparation to say farewell to 2020 and getting ready into the unknown of year 2021.
