The Fluid of Longevity: Resounding Discoveries in Lymph Science
Tuesday Afternoon Keynote Speaker, Dr. John Douillard will connect Ayurvedic tradition with modern spa therapies that enhance your personal vitality.

The lymphatics in the brain and central nervous system that drain 3 pounds of brain toxins per year were only recently discovered. Not surprisingly, thousands of years ago traditional medical systems like Ayurveda were describing the precise location of these lymph vessels along with profound lymph moving therapies. Join Dr. Douillard as he links this incredible new lymph science to many of the therapies already incorporated by the spa industry as well as powerful digestive and breathing therapies that are linked to optimal health, digestion, fitness, longevity and even your intuition.
