Assisted Lymphatic Therapy

Assisted Lymphatic Therapy (ALT)Assisted Lymphatic Therapy is a gentle touch, non-invasive technique which helps stimulate the proper flow and drainage of the Lymph System.  A combination of vibrational, light and electrical waves help to stimulate the flow by dissociation of proteins that have been trapped in the interstitium.  Although this technique is patterned after Manual Lymphatic Drainage, ALT can stimulate the lymph at a greater depth and in much less time with easier physical effort for enhanced personal wellness.

The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs including lymphatic vessels, lymph, lymphatic tissue, the spleen, thymus, tonsils, and bone marrow.  It works in conjunction with the circulatory system helping rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials by transporting lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells.  In addition to removing waste, the lymphatic system plays a primary role in the immune system and is a critical component to proper cellular nutrition by absorbing and transporting fatty acids from the digestive system.

When your lymphatic system is not functioning properly due to congestion, the cells quickly become malnourished creating the ideal environment for disease to take over. Stagnation and congestion of the lymph system can occure for many reasons including:

  • Lack of physical activity
  • Emotional stress / trauma
  • Poor diet
  • Hormone Imbalance
  • Exposure to environmental toxins
  • Excessive weight
  • Tight undergarments
  • Aging body
  • Damage or removal of lymph nodes

When lymphatic circulation slows down, poor-circulation and chronic inflammation can result.  This condition allows for toxins and proteins to accumulate around the cells, causing cellular oxygenation to decrease, tissue regeneration to diminish and a further impedance to healthy immune function

Although this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease; case studies clearly show advantages to implementing ALT which include:

  • Detoxifies bodily tissues and boosts immunity by enhancing pathogen removal
  • Relieves chronic joint pain and muscle pain and aids in sinus drainage
  • Aids in tissue regeneration, including burns, scars, stretch marks and wrinkles
  • Reduces symptoms of chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia
  • Relieves discomfort for fibrocystic breasts
  • Rerouting of lymphatic pathways after lymph node removal

Common conditions addressed with ALT:

  • Lyme Disease
  • Fibrocystic Breast
  • Lymphedema and Edema
  • General Detox & Wellness
  • General Inflamation
  • Cosmetic Enhancement
  • Enlarged Prostate
  • Cardiovascular and Cancer
