Self-Lymphatic Activation is very gentle but it has a powerful effect on the fluid systems of the body. A general rule of thumb in lymphatic work is that if the patient can climb up a flight of steps without becoming winded, they can handle a gentle lymph activation session or self-lymphatic activation. If you have any health concerns consult with your health care practitioner before making any lifestyle changes or activating your lymphatic system.
Do not use self-lymphatic activation if you have any of the above health problems.
