Lymphatic System

Of all the things we’re told about our bodies, our Lymphatic System is barely ever mentioned, but it is one of the most important and biggest systems that keeping us going!

The fluid in the lymphatic system removes wastes and toxins from the bodily tissues and brings nutrients, oxygen, immune enhancing cells and other goodies to replenish our cells.

While the heart continuously pumps blood through the blood vessels, the lymphatic system relies on the movement of smooth muscles to transport fluid through the lymph vessels.

Dry skin brushing stimulates the lymphatic system and improves circulation of lymphatic fluid throughout the body which may help improve a variety of health concerns.


We here at Happy Breast Balm reckon that we probably all have a build up of waste and toxins from the bodily tissues and especially if you are dealing with any breast issues, (discomfort, PMT, menopause, bumps, lumps or cysts), dry skin brushing and a good massage will get things moving, even better do it regularly and help keep things moving in the first place.

It seems sensible to help stimulate our lymphatic system, especially these days when we hold ourselves in bras and don’t get to run topless chasing dinosaurs! And when we are exposed to countless toxins and stresses that play havoc with our hormonal and immune systems. And our cells could all do with extra oxygen, nutrients and immune enhancing factors, right?!

Here is our guide to dry skin brushing.

If you aren’t very good at following guides, start brushing at the extremities and do light flowing strokes towards the heart, several in each area, or more or less depending on time.

The lymphatic system is actually the waste disposal system of the body.. And the skin is our largest organ! So what better way to regularly help ourselves detoxify.

Getting rid of rubbish always helps us to feel lighter and unencumbered, and its just the same within our bodies.

If you have never tried Dry Skin Brushing you will be very surprised at how good it feels..
