Lymphatic Therapy

Electro-Lymphatic Therapy

Electro-Lymphatic Therapy is a gentle, equipment-based, light touch non-invasive,  technique to stimulate the proper flow and drainage of the lymphatic system. A combination of vibrational, light, and electrical waves help to stimulate the flow by causing the dissociation of proteins that have become trapped in the interstitium. When trapped proteins (not to be confused with nutrient proteins) release their bond, the stagnant lymph is liberated and will flow out into its normal filtration and reabsorption channels.

The lymphatic system and vessels run alongside the vascular system of the body removing impurities from the blood stream. This therapy supports proper fluid balance throughout the body, enhances immune function, and provides a powerful means of detoxification. All forms of inflammation respond favorably to this therapy.

In comparison to standard lymphatic massage, Electro-Lymphatic Therapy can penetrate up to 8 inches into the tissue, and provides a more efficient pathway of lymphatic detox. Several of Tummy Temple's massage therapists are also trained in lymphatic massage techniques and can incorporate the techniques into a session. 

  • Pace maker
  • Pregnancy
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis (blood clots)
  • Sense of well-being
  • Pain reduction
  • Swelling reduction
  • Softened scar and fibrotic tissue
  • Reduction of inflammatory conditions

Electro-Lymphatic therapy is suggested for 6-8 weeks per year for the average healthy person. For persons with increased levels of congestion this is considered a starting point. Advanced health concerns can require ongoing treatment for 3-6 months followed by maintenance care.

Electro-Lymphatic therapy is best done in conjunction with Colon Hydrotherapy for maximum cleansing comfort and effectiveness. If one elects not to do colon hydrotherapy then we strongly encourage the use of home enemas, infra-red sauna, Epsom salt baths with Temple Detox Bath Salts, and electrolyte rich water.

  • $120-$165: 1 Hour Standard Session, pricing depends on practitioner

*Notice of Clarity: Massage (LMT) and Registered Nutritionist (RN) credentials do not include Electro-Lymphatic therapy in their scope of training, certification or practice.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage

This specialized and deeply relaxing massage technique focuses on the lymphatic system, which is part of the immune system. This gentle type of massage aims to help the body maintain proper blood circulation, body fluid balance, and immune functions.
The lymphatic system contains vessels and nodes with lymph, a mixture of proteins, water, waste products, and immune system elements. Located throughout the body, lymph nodes filter all this debris. The largest nodes are in the neck, groin, and armpits. They all work together to make sure "clean" lymph is transported back to the veins that carry blood toward the heart.

Lymphatic Massage is an ideal treatment for:

1. Managing swelling of any kind
2. Lymphedema
3. Immune boosting
4. Managing pain and inflammation
5. Supporting detoxification programs
6. Speeds healing and recovery after surgery
