From the MASSAGE Magazine article, “Lymph Formation,” by Joachim E. Zuther, in the September 2009 issue. Article summary: The lymphatic system is represented by a network of vessels, tissues, organs and cells by which lymph fluid is able to flow from the tissue spaces back into the bloodstream. Like the cardiovascular system, it is interactive with every organ and directly related to the body’s immune function and efficiency.
