Self-Care Face & Body Lessons

The Lymphatic Brush face and body self-care lessons unlock the mysteries of manually manipulating the lymphatic system with easy-to-follow, step-by-step stress-free routines.

Cecily refers to it as the “lazy” way to healthy skin. The more you relax into each routine and allow the stress to drain from you, the better it works.

When you relax and calm your mind, it has a trickle down effect that slows your breathing and balances your nervous system. In turn, this will cause your vessel systems to expand, improving the flow of blood and fluids.

Forget complicated routines and start simply by clearing the clutter and obstacles that interfere with the systems of the skin and their ability to protect, heal, hydrate, nourish and cleanse.

Lymphatic drainage is a restorative therapy that quiets the sympathetic nervous system, allowing the mind and body to rest and repair. Its analgesic, anti-inflammatory and de-congestive benefits make it relevant for medical, spa and home-care practices.

TLB x Terminus: 3-minute tutorial 

For those new here and who haven’t attended a training, I wanted to help you get started with a quick tutorial on the most important step when beginning any professional or personal care routine on the face, or body. 

Step 1: Opening Terminus

If you’re lacking time, this is where you should concentrate your time with additional sweeps downward on your neck behind, below and in front of your ears. 

The techniques can be transferred to working on yourself and are equally important. 

Please note everyone’s anatomy is a little different, so the soft hollow space at the base of your neck may be larger or smaller, so you may need to make some adjustments, or use the small brush. 

Avoid pressure and twisting! It’s a gentle rotation, so the textured bristles are able to engage the tissue to create a gentle stretch, or shift int he skin towards terminus. 

It’s common to see your neck begin to pulse as your vessel systems relax and dialate allowing for an increased flow of fluids, including blood flow without increased blood pressure.

The Lymphatic Brush x Stagnation
 
FAQ: What does “stagnation” look and feel like and how do I find it?
 
I equate encountering “stagnation” to the feeling of suddenly “walking in mud. It will cause the TLB to abruptly stop or slow down as it encounters congested areas.
 
As you sweep and stretch the skin, pay attention to the mobility of the tissue and what is happening above and below the area you’re working.
 
💦 Lack of movement in the tissue
💦 Firm, hardened
💦 Spongy, or gel-like
💦 Puffy, tenderness
💦 Acne, redness
💦 Spider veins
💦 Discoloration
 
These are all signs of “stagnation” and an accumulation of fluids and waste creating blockages in the tissue. 
 
💦 Thixotropy

The ground substance in the connective tissue is thixotropic, which means it has the ability to change from being thick and gel-like to a more fluid state, which affects the flow of fluids.
 
When you encounter stagnation, or this gel-like state of the tissue, slow down and gently work into the border where it’s tight and direct the fluids towards the nearest lymph node region.
 
💦 Face: Downward towards neck
💦 Legs: Upward towards back of knee and groin
 
This video is a textbook definition of what stagnation looks and feels like and how you can soften the tissue to increase flow.
