Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy Information
“This therapy is designed to detoxify the soft tissue, bolster immune system function by accelerating lymphatic flow, and reduce stress in the body, including discomfort. It helps reduce swelling and congestion in the tissues, which is often a contributing factor to long term discomfort and PAIN. The results are cumulative, and a series of sessions is the most effective way to achieve the best results.
What to expect during a session
The treatments are done in a massage setting, but this is not a massage. You will need to disrobe (undergarments are kept on) but are covered during the session. The session is done using a modality called the Arcturus Star Pro. This device uses several different types of vibrational energy.
The machine works in 3 ways:
Electrostatic Current - A safe, highly regulated electrostatic field. This is an electric current at extremely low amperage that does not heat the tissue or cause any type of muscle contraction. This current activates the parasympathetic nervous system (turns off "fight or flight" response) and puts the body into a deeply relaxed state, encouraging lymph vessels to relax and dilate, clearing out the sluggish fluid in the lymph system. This current also ionizes the tissue, which causes waste that is collected and sitting in the soft tissue outside of the lymph system to break apart and move into the lymph system to be flushed out of the body. The effect is profoundly calming - especially for those suffering with anxiety / fear / emotionally connected issues to physical challenges.
Sound Waves - Sound waves oscillate through the whole spectrum of frequencies and
harmonics thousands of times per minute to 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, colliding it to break it up.
Light Therapy - Near infrared, red LED, and blue light are also used. Visible red LED light helps to calm inflammation in the soft tissue, helping to reduce swelling. Near infrared assists in keeping nutrients and enzymes in their correct shapes so they are used more efficiently, and visible blue LED light helps to balance hormones throughout the body.” Arcturus Star.
