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.
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
- 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 over twelve years’ experience working in outpatient orthopedic and oncology rehabilitation centers here in the valley. I managed the care for patients with Lymphedema and other lymphatic and vascular conditions. Since 2013, I have been a licensed massage therapist (LMT) and certified lymphatic therapist (CLT). My career started in conventional medicine with a degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences. It was during this time that I became aware of therapeutic massage and the benefits of holistic medicine.
After relocating to Arizona from Hawaii, I started working in physical therapy and oncology rehabilitation while pursuing my degree in physical therapy to become a physical therapist assistant (PTA) with certifications that would compliment my background in oncology rehabilitation and recovery.
