UNDERSTANDING YOUR LYMPHATIC SYSTEM

Turn
volume up!

For sure you really want to get rid of your excess weight and free yourself from face puffiness, body swelling, skin problems, and cellulite. If you are looking for a much easier but more effective way of losing weight, a lymphatic drainage treatment might just be the solution to your problem.

A lymphatic drainage  is a type of treatment that uses natural and manual techniques to improve the body’s lymphatic system by about 20 times as much. The lymphatic system is like a pump that keeps your body fluids constantly moving. It is very important because when it is inactive or blocked, there could be numerous health problems in the body from a buildup of lymphatic fluid, bloating and swelling, too much water retention, and compromised immunity. Also, too many toxins accumulated in the body causing unnecessary strain to your internal organs.

To address these problems, a lymphatic drainage massage uses light pressure and rhythmic movements to prompt lymph flow. This enables our system to get rid of lymph fluid naturally because it will be redirected to the unblocked lymph nodes.

The 
Benefits

01

Detox the body

It helps reduce the buildup of lymph in these swollen areas, moving the lymph fluid through the lymphatic system. The massage encourages the lymph fluid to move and not remain stagnant. In effect, the dead cells, toxins, and waste products are then eliminated from the body more quickly and efficiently.

03

Skin elasticity is improved

It promotes blood circulation throughout your body which encourages new cell growth. This results in an enormous reduction in the number of fine lines and wrinkles in your skin. The massage also improves skin tightness and gives it a youthful and elastic feeling.

05

Helps eliminating celulites

By draining existing congestion and preventing fluid from accumulating in the lymphatic system, manual lymphatic drainage keeps the nodes clear to better remove potential cellulitis-causing pathogens.

02

Essential for post surgery

It helps to move the fluid that’s built up and allows it to move back into the lymphatic passages where excess waste and fluid can be flushed from the body. This prevents fibrosis, which is the development of thick, fibrous scar tissue under the skin as well as reduces swelling and bruising.

04

Activates immune system

The Lymph can be called the body’s garbage collector, picking up waste and harmful pathogens and preparing them for removal from the body. so, when the lymphatic system works well, you have a stronger defense against illnesses .

06

Aids on weight loss

A healthy lymphatic system means you also have a healthy metabolic rate. Likewise, a higher metabolic rate indicates that you burn more fat in your body even if you are only sitting or being inactive. A lymphatic drainage massage makes sure that your metabolic rate will not slow down so that you will avoid gaining weight.

WHO CAN BENEFIT?

Lymphatic drainage massage can benefit people who are experiencing the following:

  • I just had surgery, how long should I wait before getting a Lymphatic?
    You can begin MLD treatments in as little as 3 days post op, however, some clients choose to wait until they can drive themselves to their appointment.
  • How many Lymphatic Drainage sessions will it take to feel relief?
    Because every body is different, there is no clear cut answer. Most of our patients feel relief immediately where as others may not feel relief for 2-3 sessions.
  • How often do I need to come in for treatments?
    Post surgically, the ideal treatment is daily for the first week, followed by every other day for the second week until swelling is significantly decreased and does not return between sessions.
  • What are some of the side effects of lymphatic drainage?
    While there are no adverse side effects know with MLD, some clients report an increase in urination due to fluid drainage.
  • Is the regular lymphatic drainage the same as lymphatic drainage post-op?
    Same concept, different knowledge. The lymphatic drainage post-op is complemented with other techniques and therapies to achieve maximum results. Having just the regular lymphatic drainage will be like doing only half of the treatment.
  • Can I work out after a lymphatic drainage session?
    Absolutely! But I would emphasize that you should drink twice as much water after receiving MLD to encourage rehydration and lymph flow, especially for your heart. If you feel fatigue post-session (as your system may have been overloaded with toxins), you should refrain, as the lymphatic load may be too much.
  • What is Cavitation and how does it work?
    Cavitation is a technology that allows, thanks to low frequency ultrasonic waves, to produce microscopic bubbles in the water or interstitial fluid that surrounds the fat cells. This agitated water (as happens when we shake a bottle of champagne or champagne), causes the implosion or rupture of the cell membranes of the adipocytes or fat cells without altering the adjacent structures, respecting the integrity of the blood, lymphatic and nervous system. Cavitation is a non-invasive technique (without surgery) to shape the body. Reduces body volume, eliminating cellulite and localized fat deposits in the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, arms, calves and back. It achieves highly satisfactory results from the first sessions of treatment, as long as the patient follows the instructions and protocols designed for each particular case. The results can become permanent. The fat goes from solid to liquid. These released fats will be metabolized and eliminated naturally by the human body through the lymphatic system, venous and finally filtered by the kidney and liver. To give greater precision to the treatment and to favor the desired result, cavitation will be complemented with the lymphatic drainage treatment.
  • What benefits will I get with the cavitation treatment?
    Loss of localized volume. Dissolution of fat mass. Reaffirmation of the tissue, thanks to the contraction effect of the collagen molecules, we will achieve a smoother and firmer skin.
  • What does the patient feel while the cavitation is being performed?
    With cavitation you feel a tingling and a slight buzzing in the ears. It is not an uncomfortable or painful treatment.
  • How many sessions will I need?
    It depends on each patient, areas to be treated and the follow-up of the treatment.
  • Are there any contraindications for the cavitation?
    There are contraindications for using cavitation devices for treatment of localized fat.Ultrasonic Cavitation is not for people with heart disease, kidney failure, or liver failure. It is not for those who are pregnant, and you must wait a minimum of three months after childbirth, or at least six months after C section. Getting GP approval is recommended post childbirth if you would like to try Ultrasonic Cavitation.
  • Is the cavitation procedure safe?
    Yes! Ultrasonic Cavitation is FDA approved.
