Electro Lymphatic Drainage Therapy

What is Assisted - Lymphatic Drainage Therapy?

Electro-Lymphatic Drainage Therapy is a gentle, light touch non-invasive technique to stimulate the proper flow and drainage of the lymphatic system. A combination of vibrational, light, and electrical waves that are encapsulated in the wands; 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 stagnate lymph is liberated and will flow out into its normal filtration and reabsorption channels. This technique offers qualified therapists a natural complement to their existing healthcare protocols.

Think of a jar of water with gelatin that is very thick and gelatinous, which is similar to congested lymph. If you shake the jar the liquid becomes more fluid. The vibration of the instrument works in the same way to break up the lymphatic congestion with in the whole body.

Unlike your venous system, your lymphatic system has no pumping mechanism to keep the fluid circulating through the body. Therefore, the lymphatic system is always at a higher risk of blockage.  
The lymphatic system, (lymph, lymph nodes and lymph vessels) supports the circulatory system by draining excess fluids and proteins from tissues back into the bloodstream, thereby preventing tissue swelling. It serves as a defense system for the body, filtering out organisms that cause diseases, producing white blood cells, and generating antibodies which keeps the body well.
An impaired lymphatic system often results in:
  • Colds

  • Flu

  • Sinus Problems

  • Edema

  • Excess Water Retention

  • Heart Disease

  • Fibrocystic & Tender Breast

  • Cellulite

  • Enlarged Prostate

  • Cancer

ALT can stimulate the lymph at a greater depth than Manual Lymphatic Massage and will enhance lymph flow with far less therapy time. Since lymphatic organs play an important role in the immune system, the proper flow of the lymphatic fluid can have a positive impact on many conditions.


  • Pace makers

  • Transplanted Organ

  • Untreated Blood Clots/Cellulitis

  • Preganacy

How does the Lymphatic System get congested?

Stagnation and congestion of the lymphatic system can occur for many reasons including, but not limited to:

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