What is Lymphatic Drainage?
Lymph Therapy alleviates numerous conditions related to swelling, water retention, edema, lymphedema and physical traumas. It also addresses pregnancy, including engorgement, sore nipples (transient, chronic), plugged ducts, wounds, fissures, ulcerations, bruises and dermatitis (eczema).
Lymphatic drainage therapy also can provide relief from chronic inflammation and pre- and post-surgical applications, and can be used for cosmetic applications, such as mastoptosis, scars and traumas.
A therapist uses is a specialized lymphatic drainage therapy tool, called the Lymph-star pro which uses a light frequency/sound therapy to not only stimulate the flow of your lymphatic system but it also helps break up protein clusters that can cause blockages and clog up the Lymphatic System.
Whilst working on the Lymph, the treatment also stimulates the blood flow and helps prevent the blood cells from sticking together. Oxygen and nutrients can therefore be delivered to the body tissues more effectively.
For individuals recovering from cosmetic surgery on the face – enhanced circulation and oxygen flow speeds recovery. It’s effect is similar to hyperbaric therapies which speed wound healing through the enhancement of oxygen to the cells of the body.
