Basic Overview of Advanced Lymphatic Therapy:
Skilled Touch Health & Healing was the first to introduce ALT to the Omaha/Metro area and continues to be the leading provider of this unique, natural healing option to take your health to the next level! Feel better today and enjoy a better tomorrow!
This unique, non-invasive therapy is designed to gently detoxify the soft tissue, improve immune system function, and reduce swelling and congestion in the tissues. When the lymph system gets sluggish or blocked, inflammation is triggered. Your body becomes a breeding ground, providing the ideal environment for viruses, bacteria, and even cancer cells to settle. Many health problems and concerns are related to inflammation and congestion. An investment in a series of sessions is an investment in your health and the most effective way to achieve measurable results.
What You Can Expect During a Session
The therapy sessions are offered in a relaxed massage setting. The technique has a three-fold approach. First, is delicate manual work that targets specific lymphatic structures. Secondly, is deeper manual work to open deeper drainage pathways. Lastly, is the use of an instrument called the Lymphstar™ ProFusion. This device uses several different types of vibrational energy that are recognized by the body to encourage healing. For the more detailed information minded person – read on for the specifics of how the Lymphstar works! The machine works in 3 ways:
Electrostatic Current: A safe, highly regulated electrostatic field at extremely low amperage. This current activates the parasympathetic nervous system (turns off “fight or flight” response). It also ionizes the tissue, which causes waste that is collected, and sitting in the soft tissue to break apart, move into the lymph system where it is flushed out of the body.
Sound Waves: Frequencies and harmonics emitted from the device are between 0 and 1,000 Hz, These frequencies resonate in the body with specific organs and tissues, helping to restore them to a balanced state. These sound waves also have a mechanical effect on the waste in the tissue, allowing it to break up.
Light Therapy: Near infrared, red LED, and blue light are also used. Near-Infrared and red light help to reduce inflammation, swelling, and discomfort. The blue light helps to balance the hormones in the body.
Benefits of ALT
ALT helps mobilize stagnant hormones, fluid, and helps break up fibrocystic changes in the tissue. This promotes your body’s natural detoxification, elimination, and healing processes, energizing the lymphatic system, digestive system, liver, and gallbladder. By enhancing the detoxification pathways, regular ALT sessions may also encourage weight loss.
Your lymphatic system is an integral part of the body’s immune system and is considered your body’s second circulatory system. ALT promotes optimal immune system function, providing relief to those suffering from autoimmune disorders. It is a highly effective therapy when used post-surgically to enhance healing, and reduce chronic joint pain, scarring, and stiffness. Advanced Lymphatic Therapy sessions have successfully been demonstrated to reduce breast congestion, discomfort, and address fibrocystic breast changes. Best yet- it is amazingly relaxing and stress-reducing therapy
Is there anything I need to do to prepare for my Lymphatic Therapy session?
Drinking adequate amounts of water (6-8 glasses) is recommended before and after each ALT session to assist in the cleansing process. We also ask you to refrain from applying any lotions, oils, creams, or perfumes to the body prior to your session in order to achieve the best results.
