What is Lymphatic System?
Lymphatic System – is a vast complex network of capillaries, thin vessels, valves, ducts and nodes. There are lymph vessels and nodes throughout the body. The nodes are in the neck, armpits, groin, on the inside of the elbow and behind the knees. The lymph vessels link up, becoming larger and larger and eventually drain back into the veins. All portion of skin have lymphatic channels.All of the cells of the body or all tissues of the body are bathed in an alkaline, “extra cellular fluid” known as lymph fluid. There are 12 quarts of lymph fluid in the body compared to 3 quarts of blood. The lymphatic system purifies this fluid and thus maintain healthy environment for the cells to live in.The tissues and glands of the body excrete waste products as a result of metabolic activity. The cleansing of the body tissues and drainage of the wastes, dead cellular debris, protein, bacteria, viruses etc., is performed largely by the lymphatic system. Practically all tissue is drained by the lymphatic system. Interruption in the removal of the waste matter leads to lymph stasis, which leads to deposition of toxins and further development of the disease process.Lymph nodes produce lymphocytes, a type of white blood cells which aid in the production of antibodies as well as help fight the infection.
Lymphatic Stasis: It is a condition where the circulation of the lymph fluid slows down. This slows down the process of detoxification and is the beginning of the development of the disease process, but not the symptoms. Unlike the blood circulation system of the body, the lymphatic system has no heart to pump the lymph throughout the body. The movement of our lymph depends on the contraction of our muscles and is aided by the valves in the lymph vessels. Our vital force or energy or Chi helps with the lymphatic circulation.
The development of chronic disease begins with sluggish lymphatic Drainage.
Lymphatic Drainage: The lymphatic system is a unidirectional drainage system. The tiny lymphatic capillaries contain contractile fibers which contract several times a minute. With each contraction the lymph fluid is pumped from small vessels to larger vessels.
When the body is injured or under an attack by an infection the lymphatic circulation is put under strain resulting in waste build up. This results in the swelling of the area or the lymph nodes.
Lymphatic drainage treatment: The best way to cleanse the toxins from where they build up and begin the disease process.
Procedure: After a topical application of necessary herbal balms and aroma therapy oils, the following treatment procedures are applied for stimulating the lymphatic drainage.
- Electronically assisted massage; Rotary micro-massage is applied over the affected area using Jade Machine which also incorporates gems for the therapy. The pressure is light and the length of time varies but usually until the tenderness is eliminated.
- Electro-Lymphatic Therapy; Using Derma-Ray Oscillator, a high voltage beam of photon is showered the tissues. This increases negative charge in the tissues, repolarizes the nerves and disperses toxins thus clearing the lymphatic channels.
- Vibratory Endermatherapy- Using state of the art GX-99 vibratory endermatherapy system the toxins in the lymph vessels are drained towards the nodes. Slow, orbital or long strokes are performed with light pressure using necessary vibratory heads.
- Ozone Sauna- Ozone is nature’s most powerful detoxifier and it can breakdown all toxins. In the steam sauna, the ozone breaks down the toxins in the sweat that is expelled, thus preventing reabsorption of the toxins. Ozone also prevents bacterial and fungal growth. With ozonation the skin gets super oxygenated.
The whole treatment takes 2 hours. The end result is detoxification, an enhanced immune system, healthy skin and overall physical and mental well being.
