What is it?
I like to think of the lymphatic system as the housemaid of the body - it plays a vital role in cleaning up and supporting your immune system, transporting some fats to their right location and ensuring good fluid balance throughout your body. Working normally, it ticks along in the background but when it hasn't been cleaned for a while, you can start to to feel puffy and sluggish, and you may be more susceptible to cough and colds. Lymphatic massage helps to manually push the lymphatic fluid though your body and stimulates a good spring clean.

It’s always the simple things that work best. I have been giving out this advice on how to check your screen height for years because it really works and is super easy. Here’s what you do:
* Sit yourself down at your desk and work for 5-10mins
* Keeping your head in EXACTLY the same place you have had it while working, stand up and go for a walk around your office
* If you find yourself looking at the floor, your screen height is set too low; if you find yourself looking at the ceiling, your screen height is set too high. If your desktop is set up correctly you head should remain in a neutral position.
Simple aye! Do your neck (and pending headaches) a favour and take 5 minutes of your time today to check your screen height.
