Levels 1 to Advanced
Colleen has taken levels one to four and is skilled in giving Lymphatic Drainage to eyes, ears, bones, muscles, digestive organs, lungs, endocrine glands, and brain. She is also able to feel your personal lymphatic fluid flow patterns. Lymphatic Drainage helps to improve the immune system, balance hormones, reduce inflammation, enhance digestion, decrease sinus congestion, and relax the nervous system which then decreases pain. Light rhythmical pressure is applied to the body in order to move the lymphatic fluid.
