Lymph Drainage Therapy Promotes Restoration and Detoxification
The lymphatic system is a complex network of vessels and ducts that move fluid throughout the body. It essentially acts as an advanced filtration system that moves toxins away from healthy cells and carries germ-fighting materials to any compromised cells that are under attack by stress, viruses, bacteria, or chemical and environmental toxins.
Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT) stimulates the lymph system to speed up the processing and expelling of toxins. Promoting a healthy lymph system is essential to the efficient functioning of the body’s fluid circulation and immune system. At the completion of a LDT session, the individual feels deeply relaxed and detoxified.
LDT is beneficial and effective after surgery, dental procedures, and severe medical treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation. It clears away toxins and bacteria and decreases swelling and pain. If you feel a cold or the flu coming on, LDT can dramatically reduce symptoms. It's also a very effective treatment for lymphedema.
RESTORATION AND RENEWAL
Detoxification of the body
Relief from pain
Often, dental patients receive numbing agents, fillers, and other materials that have a toxic effect on the body. When receiving extractions, large amounts of bacteria can be released around the extraction site once a tooth is removed. These toxins, bacteria, and cell debris can cause swelling and pain, and they can make people feel tired and sluggish for days or even weeks afterward. But if patients receive lymph drainage therapy right after a procedure, toxins are flushed out of the system immediately, which reduces swelling, prevents infection, and speeds recovery.
CHEMOTHERAPY, RADIATION, AND SURGERY
Lymph drainage therapy (LDT) is a very powerful tool for ridding the body of anesthesia and other chemicals or toxins after surgery, or after procedures where a local anesthetic is used.
Cancer patients receiving chemotherapy and radiation can use this therapy to quickly process toxins which can cause nausea, fatigue, anger, depression, and other side effects. Receiving LDT after these medical treatments leads to faster detoxification, better sleeping and pain mitigation, and a faster recovery process.
