The lymphatic system is one of the most complex and important systems of the human body. Our health directly depends on its functioning because the lymphatic system is our first shield against harmful factors.

In addition, the lymphatic system is responsible for the excretion of toxins and metabolic waste. The level of immunity also depends on this system: the healthier the lymphatic system, the better it removes and fights hostile elements that enter the body.


Structure of the human lymphatic system

The lymphatic system consists of the following functional elements:

  • lymphatic vessels (large and capillaries) - flexible "tubes" through which lymph circulates throughout the body;
  • lymph nodes (lymph nodes) - centers located throughout the body responsible for the initial filtration of lymph;
  • lymphatic ducts connecting directly to the circulatory system, organs of the lymphatic system - spleen, thymus, tonsils - where cells are produced the body's immune system
  • lymph (lymph) - tissue fluid circulating in the lymphatic vessels.



This body system is directly related to the circulatory system and is adjacent to the vascular network almost everywhere blood vessels, except for the brain, spinal cord and eyeballs, lymph does not flow through these organs.

Through the vessels and nodes of the lymphatic system, tissue and special fluid are transported to the circulatory system, proteins in the intercellular space. This fluid that hasn't entered the bloodstream yet and is contained in the lymphatic vessels, is called lymph.



The role of the lymphatic system is primarily to protect the body from negative influences

external factors and filter out unhealthy and toxic elements that get into the body. The lymphatic system performs a function without which it is impossible to maintain health and efficiency body, well-being and optimal functioning of other systems. These are the following features:


  • Protective. This function is performed by lymph nodes - their tissue is able to produce primary cells
  • Immune (lymphocytes, phagocytes, antibodies).
  • Filtering. It consists in the mechanical filtration of foreign bodies entering the lymphatic system.
  • Humorous. Elements of the lymphatic system are present in 90% of the body's tissues, which allows for transmission signaling cells to all organs and tissues, resulting in active elements necessary for the implementation of immune reactions.
  • Transporting. Through the lymphatic system are sent fluids and other substances that cannot penetrate from straight into the bloodstream. A special role in this process is played by the function of supplying lipids to the blood,that soak into the lymph in the intestinal part. In addition, more than 100 g of proteins circulate in the lymph every day are the body's reserve.
  • Draining. Lymph promotes the excretion of excess water from the tissues, which is the prevention of swelling and stagnation. By In the normal functioning of the lymphatic system, this function is almost not noticeable, while with in lymph circulation disorders, its importance is felt very sharply, because they cause significant swelling tissues to the point of limiting mobility


Pressotherapy is a massage with compressed air administered by the device to a specialist suit, which consists of individual cuffs (for arms, legs, belly, etc.) and allows you to exercise massage for the whole body, as well as therapy of separate parts, on For example, just the belly or just the legs. The suit is designed taking into account the physiological and anatomical features of the human body.

Pressotherapy affects the deep layers of the dermis, vessels and the lymphatic system. Correct and delicate massaging movements during the treatment normalize metabolic processes in the body, promote the excretion of toxins and waste through the kidneys and urinary system. The diuretic effect after the pressotherapy test proves its efficiency. With stagnation of lymph in the body, various diseases and unpleasant conditions can arise. Pneumatic massage accelerates lymph circulation, preventing these pathologies. Impulse influence activates blood circulation and metabolism in cells. All tissues and organs get more oxygen and nutrients. They normalize important functions are activated, the overall healing of the body takes place. Excess fluid and toxins are expelled. An antispasmodic effect is observed (the treatment helps with headache caused by spasm of the neck muscles and back). Fatigue passes and movements relax. Patients also notice an improvement in mood and general condition body.

The pressotherapy course increases resistance to stress and builds immunity. In addition, pressotherapy is a great way to relax - the treatment effectively removes the symptoms of stress and helps with such somatic conditions as nervousness, insomnia, cramps and muscle pain. Relaxing effect and improving metabolism helps in normalizing the functioning of the digestive system, which under stress always suffers the most.
