When your lymphatic system is not functioning properly due to congestion, the cells quickly become malnourished creating the ideal environment for diseases to take over. The clear lymph fluids becomes sluggish, or even stagnant changing from water like, to milk, to yogurt, to cottage cheese. When lymphatic circulation slows down, it allows toxins and proteins to accumulate around the cell, occurring in poor circulation, chronic inflammation to cancer , cellular oxygenation to decrease, tissue regeneration to diminish and further impedance to healthy immune function.
Introducing Assisted Lymphatic Drainage
Assisted Lymphatic Therapy is a gentle, light touch non-invasive technique to stimulate the proper flow and drainage of the lymphatic system. A combination of vibrational, light, and electical waves help to stimulate the flow by causing the dissociation of proteins that have become trapped in the interstitium. When trapped proteins (not to be confused with nutrient proteins) release their bond, the stagnate lymph is liberated and will flow out into its normal filtration and reabsorption channels.
Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) is a technique which uses pressure and motion applied with the hands to help stimulate proper lymphatic fluid flow and drainage. The primary purpose for MLD therapy is to treat lymphedema patients. The therapy is practiced in clinics and hospitals all over the world by certified therapists.
Although MLD has its place, ALT can stimulate the lymph at a greater depth and will enhance lymph flow with far less therapy time. The enhanced stimulation of ALT has provided benefits to many of our clients who experienced limited response from MLD.
