What is Assisted Lymphatic Therapy?
Assisted Lymphatic Therapy (ALT) is a gentle, non-invasive technique that helps stimulate the proper flow of lymph using a combination of vibrational, light, and electrical waves along with inert gas (argon, krypton, and xenon) ionization. The lymphatic system can become congested due to lack of physical activity, stress/trauma, poor diet, hormone imbalance, damaged or removed lymph nodes, and exposure to environmental toxins. ALT helps to break up this congestion allowing it to be flushed out of the body.
What is the Lymphatic System?
The lymphatic system includes a network of tissues and organs including lymphatic vessels, lymph, lymphatic tissue, the spleen, thymus, tonsils, and bone marrow. The lymphatic system recovers the fluid that leaks from the blood capillaries into tissues keeping the tissues from becoming like waterlogged sponges. It works together with the circulatory system helping rid the body of toxins, waste, and other unwanted materials by transporting lymph.
Who might benefit from ALT?
ALT may be beneficial to those with inflammation, water retention, edemas, nasal congestion, chronic muscle and joint pain, Lyme’s disease, fibrocystic breasts, or enlarged prostate. ALT may also be helpful to those wishing to boost the immune system or detoxify tissues and organs.
Who should not receive ALT?
If you are currently pregnant or nursing you should not receive Assisted Lymphatic Therapy. Also, if you are taking immunosuppressant medications for a transplant or if you currently have a pacemaker or Deep Vein Thrombosis (blood clot) you should not have ALT.
Is there anything I should tell my Assisted Lymphatic Therapist prior to my treatment?
It is helpful for the therapist to know if you have had any surgeries, especially if any lymph nodes have been removed.
