The Book of Lymph will give you quick, easy and therapeutic lymph-optimisation strategies, using the simple healing magic of your own touch.
The lymphatic system is the body's first line of defence against illness and is responsible for ridding the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. When it's not functioning well, it's easy to see and feel the bloat, puffiness and general malaise it causes.
Lisa Levitt Gainsley combines her 25 years of experience as a lymph specialist with scientific know-how to show us how lymphatic treatment is the missing link to our most common health woes. She shows us how lymphatic drainage can provide us with pain relief, inflammation reduction, weight loss, brighter skin and generally better health. From three-to-five-minute massage sequences to backed-up research into the effectiveness of lymphatic drainage, The Book of Lymph will put you on the path to taking control of how you feel, reducing bloating and puffiness independently. The first book of its kind, The Book of Lymph will help you to live a pain-free life.

Lisa was my yoga instructor and she was damned good-and she had to be, because yoga is not for the squeamish, and you can't get any more squeamish than me. She was completely invested in my progress and was delighted when she saw improvement. She had a great sense of humor (well, she laughed at my jokes). She was considerate. She didn't talk too much. She didn't talk too little. She was completely knowledgeable about muscles and joints and a lot of scientific stuff about the body that I never paid attention to when they taught it in school. In fact, I liked her and trusted her so much, I even gave her the entry code to my house. Other than my immediate family and my housekeeper, no one has that code. My daughter would scream at me, "Dad, you can't give out our house code to anyone!" I said to her, "You don't understand, honey, this is Lisa." This book of hers is the culmination of a lifetime devoted to improving people's lives. I was fortunate enough to be one of those people. * Larry David, Actor and Producer *
In the last few years I have been drawn as part of my healing and self-care to learn more about my body and with that came a deeper understanding of my lymphatic system. It's such an integral part of our bodies yet no one really tells you about it and how it works. Through my discoveries I was fortunate enough to meet Lisa who changed everything for me and taught me most of what I know about my lymph and how important it is to staying healthy, removing toxins, and looking and feeling good. She is truly an expert in this field and has a very gentle and holistic approach. Through seeing Lisa for treatments she taught me hands-on techniques I could do myself on a daily basis, which for me has been a game changer in the way I feel but also just in the way I connect to my body. * Jenni Kayne, Entrepreneur, Jenni Kayne Lifestyle *

Lisa Levitt Gainsley is a gifted, trusted, and passionate certified lymphedema specialist. Her book is an invaluable resource-we would all benefit from her wisdom and experience. I, for one, know that I would be very excited to share this book with my patients and colleagues! * Rachel Frankenthal, PA-C, MPH, Gynecologic Oncology at David Geffen School of Medicine, UCLA *
