Trusting the Road Ahead

When I reflect on my journey to the present day, the word that comes to mind is trust. I trusted all along the way. I am the resident CranioSacral Therapist at MAAIM but I am so much more. I am a wife, mom, educator, vegetarian, ferocious reader, lover of bad jokes and overall happy human being.

Our lymphatic system is comprised of transparent lymph vessels, lymph nodes, lymphatic organs and lymph fluid. Lymph is fluid that has naturally been lost into the tissues via the cardiovascular system and is generally clear. Since the lymph vessels are transparent and the fluid within them is clear, it made it difficult to isolate and name this system. Despite being our newest system, it is an incredibly important to our survival. (Read more on our Blog)
