Electro Lymphatic Therapy (ELT)

A gentle, non-invasive, light touch therapy that stimulates the proper flow and drainage of the lymphatic system.

Understanding the Lymphatic System

The lymphatic system can be thought of as the “information highway” of the immune system. When functioning and flowing correctly without blockages the lymphatic system cleanses tissues, helps to repair cells and eliminates toxins from the body.

Now, imagine a congested freeway where cars are bumper to bumper with nowhere to go because of an accident up ahead. Everyone is at a standstill, stuck in their position waiting for help to arrive and clear the accident. Little do you know, help is already there. However, the emergency vehicles are stuck behind you. There isn’t a clear path for them to get in and clear out the accident, to help the injured and restore the freeway to its optimal function I.E. a clear road for you to smoothly get to your destination.

Now apply this picture to your lymphatic system. Your body knows how to protect itself from pathogens, how to heal and how to function optimally. Your lymphatic system is a miraculous system designed to bring nutrients in and eliminate waste. It aids in cellular repair and is able to quickly and efficiently remove toxic material from your body. It can also mount the deadliest of attacks on foreign invaders.

However, when the lymphatic system becomes congested your body now becomes the above scene. The emergency vehicles, in other words, the infection-fighting and scavenging cells of your immune system are “stuck” in the traffic jam, unable to move in and remove the threat. Your body becomes laden with toxins. It becomes sluggish and tired, unable to even fight off a simple cold or flu. Fatigue, brain fog, headaches, weight gain and various addictions to caffeine, sugar and carbohydrates become the norm to get through the day.

The cause of the lymphatic congestion is varied – sedentary lifestyle, poor nutrition, constipation, environmental toxins, stress (a major factor) and poor management of emotions such as anger, resentment, hormonal imbalances, infections, scar tissue, etc.

What is Electro Lymphatic Therapy (ELT)?

ELT is a gentle, non-invasive, light touch therapy that stimulates the proper flow and drainage of the lymphatic system. You can think of ELT as a method to help the body to clear its informational highway, so that all of its vital systems, including your immune system, can function at their optimal level. ELT is therefore a powerful intervention when it comes to healing from cancer or any chronic illness.

At Oasis we use the Lymph Drainage XP2 device for ELT sessions. This treatment device uses a unique combination of light waves, sound harmonics and inert gas ionization to decongest the lymphatic system.

The device’s transmission heads (hand blown glass bulbs containing the rare noble gases argon, xeon, and krypton) are moved across the body in a specific direction that correlates to the body’s lymphatic flow.

The light waves, sound vibration and flow of electrons are ionized through the transmission heads, which then break up trapped proteins within tissues. Trapped proteins (not to be confused with nutrient proteins) hold water, cause swelling and create blockages. These trapped proteins are highly electrical in nature. When they are exposed to the discharging ions from the transmission heads they release their bonds and break apart. This allows the lymph vessels to release excess, blocked, stagnant or retained fluid, which can then flow out into its normal filtration and re-absorption channels.

The use of an inert gas ionization instrument in conjunction with the proper therapeutic techniques can provide results far beyond that of manual lymph manipulation by directly addressing these trapped and sticky proteins found in a congested lymphatic system. Each session of ELT is equivalent to 8-10 manual treatments.
