What are the benefits of Electro-Lymphatic Therapy (ELT)? ELT facilitates general detoxification, reduces swelling and water retention, and improves skin smoothness and brightness. ELT also combats symptoms of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, decreases inflammation, is an effective therapy for lymphedema, and significantly reduces post-operative healing time. It’s most effective when received 1-2 times prior to surgery, and several times thereafter (number varies depending on the surgery).
ELT clears up sluggish lymph. ELT is the most effective method to significantly improve lymphatic drainage. It changes the consistency of stuck lymph from a gelatinous state to a more water-like state, allowing lymph to flow easily. ELT uses a combination of vibration, light, and electrical waves, and is completely painless.
What is lymph? Lymph is a clear fluid that runs through a secondary circulatory system in the body. The lymphatic system is the primary detoxification pathway, the main highway of our immune system, and it transports nutrients to our cells. Lymphatic vessels provide the pathway through which swelling drains away from our tissues.
What are signs of a sluggish lymphatic system? Frequent illness, swelling, chronic fatigue, and unexplained pain are all signs of a congested lymphatic system.
Why does lymph get stuck? Our lymph gets congested, or “stuck,” due to inflammation, lack of physical activity, a poor diet, tight fitting clothing, stress, medications, surgery and toxin exposure.
How is ELT different than Manual Lymphatic Drainage? Traditional lymphatic drainage (“lymphatic massage”) is unable to change the consistency of lymph. Manual therapists must try to move thick lymph through vessels – it’s like trying to drink “Jello” through a straw. ELT makes lymph flow like water.
How will ELT make me feel? Clients experience a deep sense of relaxation after therapy, followed by an increase in energy levels. Positive effects accumulate with each session. Best results are experienced when receiving therapy regularly. Package pricing available.
