What is Lymphatic Drainage?

 Detox and Lymphatic Drainage

Electro-Lymphatic Drainage is a one-hour accelerated method of cleansing and detoxifying the lymphatic system.

In a congested lymphatic system, lymph is thick, sticky, stagnant, laden with toxins and unable to circulate and eliminate wastes. Lymphatic congestion and toxicity reduce the electrostatic field of the proteins in interstitial fluids and contribute to thickening and clumping of lymph. Breaking down congested lymph fluid is painlessly achieved in a two-step process using the XP2.

Step 1: The client rests comfortably on a massage table. To increase electrostatic tension and stimulate lymphatic drainage, we employ high-frequency electro-sound therapy via a hand-held XP2. The device contains an oxygenating rare neon gas bulb that devitalizes bacteria, viruses, etc. The electric charges stimulate, re-polarize and re-establish ideal frequency and energy of individual cells, tissues, and the entire lymphatic system; producing a mild heating effect, increasing circulation, activating lymph, breaking up blockages, detoxifying, and enhancing immunity.

Step 2: Lymph (fat and cellulite) is directed manually along the limbs and torso (always in the direction of the ducts) with two probes of a micro-current stimulator on the XP2 delivering a frequency-specific signal. This stimulates the lymphatic system and increases circulation, proper elimination, detoxification, cell nourishment, and immunity.

 

Why lymphatic drainage therapy?

Most ailments are linked to the lymphatic system and a compromised immune system. The most logical means for pathogens to be eliminated from our body is through the lymphatic system.

Joyce Garcia is committed to a practice of whole person healing including Lymphatic Drainage. She uses the state of the art in electro-sound lymphatic drainage instrumentation, the XP2 Lymphatic Drainage Machine. Benefits of Lymph Drainage Therapy include: assisting in weight loss, reducing edema, and removing pathogens.

 

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LYMPH DRAINAGE THERAPY

 

The lymphatic system plays a vital role in the body’s immunity. It is a complex network of fluid-filled tubes that continuously bathes our cells and then carries away the body’s “sewage” - toxins, waste products of metabolism, globules of fat, excess liquid - to filters called lymph nodes, where harmful substances are trapped and neutralized. The body contains three times more lymph fluid than blood. However, while blood has a pump - the heart - to keep it moving, lymph must be pumped by the movement of our muscles. The less we move, the more stagnant the lymph system becomes.

Other factors - such as illness, chemicals and pesticides in food, pollution - can also overload and stall the lymph system. And then, there’s everyday stress that can shut down the lymphatic flow.

With today's sedentary lifestyles, pollution, constipation, and diets low in nutrients and high in fats, sugars, additives and preservatives, our lymphatic system becomes overloaded, congested, and clogged.

80% of overweight women have sluggish lymphatic systems according to new research.

Getting the lymphatic system running smoothly again is the key to easy weight loss and feeling great.

Many experts believe that a lazy lymphatic system is directly connected to the formation of cellulite because backed up fluid ‘sticks’ to fat cells.
