Lymphatic System

The Lymphatic System is a central component of the immune system and protects the body by draining and filtering out waste. Anything we can do to encourage vital and active lymph drainage is an important component of health. The causes of lymphatic congestion range from injuries and surgery, inactivity and poor diet, to emotional/ stress states, environmental toxins, hormone imbalance, and normal aging processes. When this state occurs the blockages cause a backup in the flow of lymphatic fluid, resulting in swelling or edema in the tissues and in various kinds of “symptoms.” Consequently, toxic waste matter cannot effectively be released from the body, nor can the immune system function at optimum performance. The result is a wide range of dysfunction and disease.

Therapeutic Technique

A therapeutic technique known as manual lymphatic drainage was developed in Europe in the 1930s. Through delicate massaging techniques it was highly effective at reducing lymph-based disorders, but the process is very labor intensive. Within the last decade a hi-tech electronic instrument was found to assist and amplify the effects of manual lymphatic drainage, reducing the time and complexity of the therapy. The Lymphstar Pro is the most recent advancement of this instrument. Proven over time as a safe and effective therapeutic tool it is designed for use in many clinical applications.

Testimonial

"I am so grateful to have found you and the healing power of the Lymphatic Therapy. Following therapy with the Lymphstar Pro the pain disappeared and I was informed by my surgeon the previously enlarged lymph node was no longer present and that neither a biopsy nor further visits were required."
