About this course:

Our lymphatic system has two vital functions. It is responsible for the movement of metabolic ash, or toxic material, that is released from cells, effectively serving as the body’s sewage system. At the same time, all immune functions take place in the nodes of the lymphatic system. In this second capacity, it is vital for the lymphatics to be as uncongested as possible, so that our immune fighter cells can identify and destroy antigens and pathogens. In this workshop, we will explore the physiology of the lymphatic system from both the Western and East Asian perspective. With this understanding, we will explore strategies to relieve lymphatic and blood stagnation, and thereby enhance immune potential.
