Lymphatic Therapy (LET)

Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy (LET) is a new and innovative approach to stimulating the lymphatic system, and is available by way of an electronic device called the Lymphstar Pro/Fusion®.

Combining both the Lymphstar Pro/Fusion® and manual stimulation techniques, Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy (LET) improves lymphatic drainage and increases lymph fluid flow. The Lymphstar Pro/Fusion® provides various fields of low vibration energy, radio frequency waves and electro-static energy, which stimulates the lymphatic capillaries to increase fluid flow as well as break down protein-rich fluid in the tissue space (“water retention”), helping restore a sluggish lymph system to normal healthy function.

The Benefits

Over ten years of experience in working in this field we have found Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy to:

  • Improve lymphatic fluid flow and accelerate tissue detoxification
  • Improve post-surgery swelling
  • Improve lymphedema
  • Improve swollen lymph nodes and fibrotic conditions
  • Improve fibrocystic breast disease, breast pain and reduce breast lumps
  • Support the immune system and ease fatigue syndromes
  • Reduce inflammation and pain
  • Improve fibromyalgia
  • Improve digestive complaints
  • Support organs of elimination
  • Improve poor circulation
  • Relieve allergies and sinus issues
  • Reduce cellulite
  • Relieve stress and restore parasympathetic nervous system

The Experience

The Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy (LET) Practitioner uses a unique combination of gentle manual stimulation techniques and the use of the Lymphstar Pro/Fusion® transmission heads which are applied directly to the skin.  This gentle, relaxing and non-invasive procedure works more effectively than manual techniques used alone. We have found that several, consistent sessions (at least one per week for 6-12 weeks) produces the best results.

About The Lymph System

The lymphatic system is the most underrated part of our circulatory system. Our body contains about 50% more lymphatic fluid than blood, yet sadly many health-care practitioners rarely consider the critical role the lymphatic system plays in preventing disease and keeping us healthy.

The lymph system is the body’s primary waste elimination system and functions as the body’s primary means of immune defense. It contains over 600 “collection sites” called lymph nodes and has a network of collection vessels more extensive than the blood system. The lymph node is an immune related organ, it’s role is as a filtration and purification station for lymph fluid and a place for disabling and destroying bacteria, toxins, viruses, parasites, fungus, etc.

As a circulatory system, optimal flow must be maintained within the lymphatic system. Unlike the blood, whose circulation is driven by the pumping of the heart, the lymph does not have its own pump. It is propelled by three means: the movement of muscles, the nerves which create subtle pulsations, and the fluid pressure within the system. Lymph fluid is cleansed by the liver, kidneys, and heart. Therefore, physical movement and deep breathing are vital to stimulate lymphatic drainage.

The lymph fluid contains lymphocytes, these guys are like the original “Pacman” as they go about their work gobbling up all the garbage in our bodies and expelling it through the lymph system. If the lymph system is congested, the lymphocytes can’t do their job and our bodies become a virtual junk yard.

If conditions lead to sluggish lymph flow, fluid can concentrate in specific areas causing edema/swelling, or impaired function along the entire lymph system (congestion). When this state of congestion is long lasting, blockages can form and cause a backup in the flow of lymphatic fluid. Consequently, cellular waste cannot effectively be released from the body as a whole or from specific areas such as injury sites and therefore the immune system may not function at its optimum. A good analogy explaining this is whereas healthy lymph should be a thin fluid like milk, congested lymph becomes more like cottage cheese.

What causes lymphatic congestion?

The causes of lymphatic congestion are poor lifestyle such as inactivity and improper diet, infections, injuries and surgery (scar tissue and adhesions), emotional stress states, environmental toxins, hormone imbalance, and the normal ageing processes.

It becomes evident how poor lymphatic drainage can contribute to a wide range of diseases and lack of vitality.

An impaired lymphatic system often results in:

• Fibrocystic and tender breasts
• Edema and excess water retention
• Cancer
• Auto-immune conditions
• Digestive complaints
• Poor circulation
• Loss of energy
• Heart Disease
• Colds, flu and sinus problems
• Cellulite

Blockages can occur from normal life stressors such as:
• Insufficient diet
• Illness
• Lack of exercise
• Tight-fitting clothing, including ties, bras, underwire bras, underwear and pantyhose
• Bumps, bruises and other injuries
• Exposure to heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, and chemicals
• Impaired circulation
• Food allergies or sensitivities
• Surgery
• Stress
