Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

Lymphatic Drainage Therapy allows the lymph vessels to release the excess blocked, stagnate or retained fluids.

Your lymphatic system is designed to bring nutrients in and waste out, aid in cellular repair, quickly and efficiently remove toxic material from your body and prevent illness. 

Your body knows how to protect, heal, and function at its best. However, when congestion sets in, your body becomes laden with toxins, sluggish and tired, and unable to perform necessary functions. Fatigue, brain fog, headaches, weight gain, and various addictions to caffeine, sugar, and carbohydrates become the norm.

The cause of the congestion is varied from sedentary lifestyles, poor nutrition, constipation, environmental toxins, stress, anger, resentment, hormonal imbalances, infection, scar tissue, etc.

Lymphatic Therapy helps the body clear its informational pathways so that the body and ALL of its systems including your immune and lymphatic systems can function at their optimal level, thus producing optimal health.

Electro-Lymphatic Drainage

The Lymph Drainage XP2ä is a therapeutic treatment device that utilizes frequencies to ionize a unique combination of Argon, Krypton and Xenon gases which are contained within a glass tubes or wands in order to transmit energy directly through the skin to painlessly break down congestion in the lymphatic system throughout the body.

“The effect created by the light & sound vibration and flow of electrons as they are ionized through the transmission head cause a disassociation of the trapped proteins within the interstitium. Trapped proteins in the interstitium hold water and cause swelling and blockage as the thread like vessels swell beyond their capacity, and can no longer effectively pass along the lymph through its normal means of transport in the lymphatic system.

Trapped proteins (not to be confused with nutrient proteins) are highly electrical in nature and when they are exposed to the discharging ions in the transmission head they become disassociated and release their bond between themselves then releasing the stagnate lymph. This allows the lymph vessels to release the excess blocked, stagnate or retained fluid and to flow out into its normal filtration and re-absorption channels.

The use of an Inert Gas Ionization Instrument in conjunction with the proper therapeutic techniques can provide results far beyond that of manual lymph manipulation or use of tight fitting garments by addressing the trapped and sticky proteins directly.” Therapeutic BioSystems, LLC

We use a combination of Electro and Manual Lymphatic Drainage to maximize the flow of lymph fluid throughout the lymphatic system thereby augmenting waste removal from the body. This supports and enhances the functioning of the immune system and allows it to do more of what it was designed to do – eliminate cancer and restore health.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

MLD sits comfortably in both the complementary and medical world. It is used in rehabilitation units, physiotherapy departments, lymphedema clinics and, massage and beauty salons.

What does it do?

  • MLD helps to drain excess fluid from the tissues of the body
  • MLD can help to reduce pain by its action on the nervous system
  • MLD aids relaxation by its action on the nervous system and muscles
  • MLD is believed to improve the immune system

Because of MLD’s far-reaching effects, it can be beneficial for:

  • General wellbeing, relaxation and stress control
  • Pregnancy
  • Cosmetic surgery to aid healing and reduce swelling
  • After many types of surgery e.g. joint replacement
  • Chronic conditions, e.g. sinusitis, arthritis, eczema, leg ulcers, migraine, old scars – helps to improve the color and flatten them
  • Lymphedema, especially on the body and the face, and on the limbs in conjunction with specialist bandaging, skin care, and exercises (Combined Decongestive Therapy).

I have been a Licensed Massage Therapist since 2008 and was certified as a Lymphedema Therapist in 2017. When my father was diagnosed with cancer in 2014, I sought more training in oncology massage to help ease his symptoms and improve his quality of life. That experience totally changed the focus of my massage practice to working primarily with those either going through their cancer treatment or living with the effects after treatment, such as lymphedema.
 
Originally from Southern California, I have lived all over the United States, including Washington, Louisiana, and Florida, eventually settling here in Arizona to live closer to my family. I love cats, yoga, and spending time with my husband in our mid- century house in Phoenix.
