We all want vibrant health, glowing skin, a healthy immune system and to feel emotionally well...but did you know that your lymphatic system is key to all of that? And that you can give yourself a simple self-massage to transform your wellbeing?

I feel very privileged to have had my eyes opened to the remarkable role of our lymphatic system – and how we can actively care for it. And that is all thanks to the amazingly passionate Lisa Levitt Gainsley, who is my guest on this episode of Wellness Unwrapped.

Lisa is a Certified Lymphedema Therapist, Manual Lymphatic Drainage practitioner, author of The Book of Lymph, educator and speaker. She holds a double certification in Lymphedema Therapy and is a member of the Lymphatic Education & Research Network (LE&RN) and National Lymphedema Network (NLN).

Lisa has pioneered the field of lymphatic self-massage and founded The Lymphatic Message to educate and build awareness of the importance of the lymphatic system in maintaining immunity. She counts Selma Blair and Freida Pinto among her dedicated clientele at her private practice in Los Angeles.

You can watch Lisa demonstrate a simple facial message at 31.57 - 33.41 minutes of this video version of our conversation:
