Electro-Lymph Drainage Therapist, Melissa Gallagher, has studied lymphatics for over 6 years and has been implementing this specialized therapy to promote lymphatic health and move lymph flow in individuals who have recently suffered shock, stress, trauma, surgery or injury to the lymphatic system.
BENEFITS OF LYMPH DRAINAGE
THERAPY (LDT) INCLUDE:
- Assists weight loss
- Alleviates cellulite tissue
- Supports preventative health maintenance
- Detoxifies the body tissues
- Regenerates tissue, including burns, scars (pre- and
post- surgical), stretch marks and wrinkles (especially on the face)
- Relieves discomfort from fibro-cystic breasts
- Supports post-mastectomy health
- Relieves chronic joint and muscle pain
- Removes pathogens via the lymph system
- Promotes T-cell development, which assists persons who
are HIV positive
- Reduces edema (swelling) of many origins
A WIDE RANGE OF
PRACTITIONERS USE LYMPH DRAINAGE THERAPY, INCLUDING:
- medical doctors
- osteopathic physicians
- physical therapists
- massage therapists, and
- colon therapists.
Without a pump, the body’s lymphatic system must depend on motion (exercise
and/or massage) to propel lymph through its vessels.
Lymphatic massage is rigorous to the client as the therapist has to
virtually squeeze the lymph through the lymphatic pathways, oftentimes leaving
the client exhausted, and sore for days.
An easier Electro-Lymphatic Drainage Method is available to assist those who
need increasing lymph flow. Since bodily fluids are conductors of electricity,
in conjunction with specific frequencies, we use electricity and sound to break
down congested lymph using a special tool called the Lymph Star Pro, the state of the art in electro-sound
lymphatic drainage instrumentation. Each session is equivalent to eight to ten
manual lymphatic drainage sessions.
As lymph is effortlessly moved through lymphatic pathways, the client is
left feeling calm and rejuvenated, with none of the soreness that results from
squeezing required in manual lymphatic massage.
Electro-Lymphatic Drainage is a one-hour accelerated method of cleansing and
detoxifying the lymphatic system.
In a congested lymphatic system, lymph is thick, sticky, stagnant, laden
with toxins and unable to circulate and eliminate wastes. Lymphatic congestion
and toxicity reduce the electrostatic field of the proteins in interstitial
fluids and contribute to thickening and clumping of lymph. Breaking down
congested lymph fluid is painlessly achieved in a two-step process using the Lymph Star Pro.
Step 1: The client rests comfortably on a massage table. To increase
electrostatic tension and stimulate lymphatic drainage, we employ
high-frequency electro-sound therapy via two hand held glass wands. The device contains
an oxygenating rare neon gas bulb that devitalizes bacteria, viruses, etc. The
electric charges stimulate, re-polarize and re-establish ideal frequency and
energy of individual cells, tissues, and the entire lymphatic system; producing
a mild heating effect, increasing circulation, activating lymph, breaking up
blockages, detoxifying, and enhancing immunity.
Step 2: Lymph (fat and cellulite) is directed manually along the limbs and
torso (always in the direction of the ducts) with two probes of a micro-current
stimulator on the Lymph Star Pro delivering a frequency-specific signal. This stimulates
the lymphatic system and increases circulation, proper elimination,
detoxification, cell nourishment, and immunity.
80% of overweight women have sluggish lymphatic systems according to
Getting the lymphatic system running smoothly again is the key to easy weight
loss and feeling great.
Many experts believe that a lazy lymphatic system is directly connected to
the formation of cellulite because backed up fluid ‘sticks’ to fat cells.
The lymphatic system plays a vital role in the body’s immunity. It is a
complex network of fluid-filled tubes that continuously bathes our cells and
then carries away the body’s “sewage” - toxins, waste products of metabolism,
globules of fat, excess liquid - to filters called lymph nodes, where harmful
substances are trapped and neutralized. The body contains three times more
lymph fluid than blood. However, while blood has a pump - the heart - to keep
it moving, lymph must be pumped by the movement of our muscles. The less we
move, the more stagnant the lymph system becomes.
Other factors - such as illness, chemicals and pesticides in food, pollution
- can also overload and stall the lymph system. And then, there’s everyday stress
that can shut down the lymphatic flow.
With today's sedentary lifestyles, pollution, constipation, and diets low in
nutrients and high in fats, sugars, additives and preservatives, our lymphatic
system becomes overloaded, congested, and clogged.
