Many of us often focus on the skin, but treating the lymph system can be equally important to your overall wellbeing. Understanding how the lymph system works and its importance to overall health can help you improve your health and beauty.
Lymph is formed when plasma from blood vessels mixes with fluids around the cells. It carries nutrients—for cellular activity, blood cells and the waste discharged from cells—along predetermined pathways to hundreds of filtering stations called lymph nodes, which cleanse the lymph, removing waste as well as undesired molecules or organisms, and excess water. This continuous cleansing is an important part of the body’s immune system. Keeping the lymph flowing is essential to good health.
Blood is kept moving by the beating of the heart, but the lymphatic system has no pump of its own. Pulsing arteries, respiration and muscle movement are usually enough to keep the lymph moving, but that can be slowed or blocked by poor health habits, trauma or illness, all of which allow fluids and toxins to accumulate and overwhelm the immune system.
Silhuoet-tone Lympha Tone system is gentle, non-invasive electro lymphatic technique, to stimulate the proper flow and drainage of the lymphatic system. A combination of different electrical waves helps to stimulate the flow by causing the dissociation of proteins that have become trapped in the interstitium. When trapped proteins (not to be confused with nutrient proteins) release their bond, the stagnate lymph is liberated and will flow out into its normal filtration and reabsorption channels. This technique is safe and very effective
What can I expect from a lymphatic drainage session?
Electro Lymphatic Therapy (ELT) is a gentle, non-invasive, light frequency therapy technique. This treatment is as relaxing and comfortable as a relaxation massage
How effective is electrolymphatic drainage therapy?It can be highly effective for over 60 different conditions. We use electro-lymphatic therapy (ELT) which utilizes an electrodes to send high-frequency electrical pulses into the lymphatic system. These healing frequencies break up the congestion at a fast rate and so target an affected area efficiently. This device is so effective that one session of its use is equal to 4 to 6 sessions of only manual lymphatic massage.
What are the benefits electrolymphatic drainage therapy?
We can reach areas that the traditional manual massage cannot reach. The major components of the lymphatic system occur in areas protected by bony structure, such as the upper chest area. Electronic therapy vibrates and stimulates the lymph nodes under the bone structure.
We can treat areas that would normally be too painful for manual massage. Electronic therapy stimulates the Lymph without putting pressure on the muscles.
How many therapy sessions will I need?
This progressive technique typically requires more than one session for maximum affect. The number of treatments required will vary depending on the severity of the condition. Goals are discussed during the first treatment to meet your expectations and specific needs.
In more severe cases, it is recommended to have treatments 2-3 times a week, reducing to once a month. Treatment times will also vary; an average session will normally take 30-60 minutes
What can I expect after a lymph therapy session?
• Increased energy after several treatments. May feel tired after initial treatment
• Reduces cellulite, but actually patient needs several treatments
• Weight loss from fluid drainage and toning of tissue
• Skin looks more toned
