Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
What is the lymphatic system?
The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system and a vital part of the immune system, comprising a network of lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph (from Latin lympha meaning water) directionally towards the heart. It is the information highway of our immune system and the pathway for toxic removal.
How do I know if I have a lymphatic problem?
Proper lymphatic flow is a result of physical activity and an overall healthy circulatory system. But stagnation can occur in the system causing congestion and thicker lymphatic fluid. Also, surgery, injuries, radiation therapy, and removal of lymph structures create scar tissue that blocks the flow. This block in flow may result in symptoms such as sinus trouble, headaches, swelling (edema), fatigue and chronic pain syndromes, skin and other infections, asthma, allergies, poor digestion, ongoing pain after surgery and injuries, and premature aging.
What is the Lymphstar Pro?
This is a device that emits a low energy vibration that is safe and relaxing. This electronic device uses therapy heads containing noble gases in glass tubes. The gases are excited (ionized) by a high voltage field at low current (amperage). The therapy heads emit various fields of energy when touched onto the skin.
How many sessions are needed?
Typically 6 sessions are needed to gain positive benefits. The first session is 20-30 minutes in duration, with follow up sessions lasting up to 1 hour.
