Lymph Drainage Therapy

What is Lymph?

Lymph is a clear to whitish fluid made up of 90% water and 10% solutes such as protein, hormones, white blood cells, cellular waste products and dissolved gasses.

The lymph system is crucial to the body’s ability to ward off disease and to heal from injuries. It is a network of organs, lymph nodes, lymph ducts, and lymph vessels that make and move lymph from body tissues to the bloodstream.

Functions of the Lymphatic System

The lymphatic system is an extensive circulation and drainage system that returns water and proteins from body tissues back into the bloodstream.

It is the primary way our body can detoxify from waste products generated by normal body process- es as well as from toxins that enter the body from our environment.

This system plays a major role in the immune system both in the development of immunity to disease- causing agents such as bacteria, viruses and fungi and in fighting infection by trapping and destroying these harmful pathogens. It also attacks and removes precancerous and cancerous cells from the body. It transports fats and fat soluble vitamins from the digestive system to the venous circulation.

Why De-stagnate the Lymphatic System?

The lymphatic system depends on physical activity to propel lymph through its vessels. A stagnating system has traditionally been stimulated through a specialized massage technique called manual lymphatic drainage. However, state-of-the-art electro-sound lymphatic drainage technology is now available to decongest the lymph system and stimulate lymph flow painlessly and effortlessly. It is equivalent to 8-10 manual sessions.

More About Electro-Sound Lymphatic Drainage

Sophisticated electro-sound technology moves lymph through the lymphatic pathways in a gentle and soothing manner. While the client rests com- fortably on a massage table, the therapist guides the lymph device along lymphatic pathways. This process decongests the entire lymphatic system, devitalizes bacteria and viruses and stimulates and revitalizes body tissues.

During the 60 minute session, the client may experience a mild heating effect and a feeling of relaxation and well-being.
