The Lymphatic System – The Body’s Garbage Can That YOU Have To Activate!

The lymphatic system acts somewhat like the “garbage can of the body”- a complex network of vessels and organs that recycles body fluid, in the form of “lymph”, targeting and removing invading bacteria, viruses and waste. The lymph system, for example, bathes every cell, carrying nutrients to the cell and waste products away. If it becomes stagnant, the cells are left stewing in their own waste products and starving for nutrients, a situation that contributes to infections, arthritis, cancer and other degenerative diseases. By allowing your body to release toxins, accumulated fluid, and proteins between the cells, healthy balance is restored.

The lymph is dependent on physical exercise, rebounding or lymphatic drainage therapy to move. This improves your lymphatic fluid flow and accelerates detoxification of your tissues. This leads to more vitality, relief of aches and pains, aids with common ailments such as sinus, flu, colds, chronic disease support and faster healing. This waste disposal system relies completely on our movement, unlike for example the cardiovascular system where the heart automatically pumps fluid. When the lymphatic system becomes overloaded and unhealthy, we become vulnerable to a vast amount of illnesses and problems- just imagine the toxic overload of not removing the waste from your body!

The Lymph Star Pro is a therapeutic, vibrational instrument with a unique combination of energetic modalities. Modalities include physical vibration with sonic, or acoustic waves, an electro-static field created by the use of multiple treatment points. All of these emissions are extremely low in energy so they are gentle and safe. The Lymph Star Pro is widely regarded as state-of-the-art in the industry. An hour session incorporating the Lymph Star Pro (non-invasive procedure) is as effective as 5 hours of manual lymph drainage alone! The Lymph Star Pro utilizes light and sound to decongest trapped proteins and congestion within lymph nodes and the lymph system, allowing waste products and toxins to safely flow out and exit the body.

In spite of its understated and delicate technique, Lymphatic Therapy is one of the most relaxing, satisfying types of bodywork available. The client leaves with a feeling of walking on air, relaxed and energized. Since our bodies are primarily made up of fluids, it’s not hard to see how improving lymphatic flow could produce numerous benefits for our health and vitality. The effects of lymphatic therapy are cumulative; the benefits are increased by the number of sessions you receive. Lymphatic Therapy is both preventive and restorative as it enhances the body’s natural immune system.

Benefits of Lymphatic Therapy

Every part of the body is influenced by the lymphatic system, because no matter what the purpose of the cells, they all need nourishing and cleaning. It's important in immunity, inflammation and healing in general, so an efficient lymphatic system is going to help in many areas. Lymphatic drainage is a way to achieve that efficiency.

  • Skin care: For a clearer complexion and to lessen the appearance of fine lines/wrinkles in facial tissue.
  • Detox: Reduce digestion sluggishness brought on by bad food choices or not enough exercise.
  • Headache: Most headaches, including sinusitis, have a component of congestion that responds well to lymphatic drainage.
  • Promote healing: After surgery, injury or any illness.
  • Reduce swelling: After long periods of immobility, fluid tends to stagnate in the tissue making it puffy and tender. Conditions such as arthritis often have joints that are congested with fluid.
  • Relaxation: A gentle treatment that alleviates stress. People will notice improvements in their level of well-being. The benefits are endless.
