Electro lymphatic therapy or lymphatic drainage massage is a gentle, light-touch, non-invasive technique.
It stimulates the proper flow and drainage of our lymphatic system, known as the “waste system”. Electro lymphatic therapy is a powerful system designed to bring nutrients in and waste out. It aids in cellular repair, and quickly and efficiently removes toxic material from your body.
It also helps mount the deadliest of attacks on foreign invaders. The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that transport lymph throughout the body.
Lymph refers to the fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells. It consists of lymphatic vessels that are connected to the lymph nodes.
The lymph nodes are where lymph is filtered. Other parts of the lymphatic system are the tonsils, spleen, adenoids, and thymus.
The most common disorders of the lymphatic system are lymphadenopathy or enlargement of the lymph nodes. Another disorder is lymphedema or swelling due to lymph node blockage and cancer in the lymphatic system. Lymphedema can develop among patients who are undergoing cancer treatment.
Electro Lymphatic Therapy Helps Break Down Congestion In The Body
When a patient has had surgery or radiation, the lymphatic flows back to the heart and can result in swelling. This commonly happens in breast cancer patients because part of the operation involves removing the lymph nodes in the armpit.
Lymphatics is one way to drain the toxins out of the cells and out of the tissue. Cancer cells enter the lymphatics and reach the lymph node where the body can develop an immune response to them. It’s very important to maintain proper flow. Exercise and yoga are recommended because only through muscle contraction can veins and the lymphatic channels flow.
The center uses the Lymph Drainage XP2 device for electro lymphatic therapy sessions. This therapeutic treatment device uses a unique combination of energetic modalities that utilize transmission heads, or wands. They are moved directly on the body to painlessly break down congestion throughout the body using inert gas ionization.
This is used in conjunction with the manual lymphatic drainage therapy technique. In this method, the therapist moves over the skin with a very light, pumping movements over the underlying tissues. These movements increase the contractions of the lymph vessels system. This increases the absorption of excess fluid and waste products, whilst not increasing blood congestion to the area.
Electro Lymphatic Therapy Benefits
Electro lymphatic drainage therapy helps remove congestion throughout the body. Congestion can be caused by various factor including a sedentary lifestyle, poor nutrition, constipation, and environmental toxins. It can also be caused by stress, hormonal imbalances, infection and even poor management of negative emotions like anger and resentment.
When congestion sets in, the infection-fighting cells are unable to move in and remove the threat. In effect, the body becomes laden with toxins and unable to fight off cold, flu, brain fog, fatigue, and headaches.
Electro lymphatic therapy can also reduce swelling and improve circulation in the lymphatic system. It is beneficial for people who are suffering from fibromyalgia, edema, skin disorders, fatigue, insomnia, chronic stress, digestive problems, migraine, and arthritis.
