Electro-Lymphatic Therapy

Summary

Electro-Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (ELT) is a gentle and non-invasive therapy that helps to stimulate proper flow and drainage of the lymphatic system, simulating the effects of a lymphatic drainage massage or tuina without the pain and pressure. ELT is performed using an FDA-registered wellness device to boost your overall wellness.

Patients with the following conditions have experienced ELT and report great improvements in their general well-being:

  • Lymphoedema and swelling
  • Chronic pain
  • Autoimmune conditions such as eczema
  • Injuries from falls or sports
  • Cancer support
  • Inflammation 

How does ELT work?

ELT combines the general technique of MLD (Manual Lymphatic Drainage) with handheld probes designed to stimulate the lymph in a more efficient and effective manner. Oriental Remedies Group clinics’ ELT machines are sourced from the USA and operates by ionising the inert gases (Argon, Krypton and Xenon) within the probes. The ionisation of these inert gases produces energy and ions which helps break down the protein clumps (some people know this as detox) causing the stagnation and congestion of the lymph fluid. The probes are then moved along the body’s natural lymphatic flow lines to help the waste clear naturally.

Why choose ELT versus a massage?

ELT is 8-10x more effective than conventional methods* (like manual massages) in dispelling congested lymph fluids.

ELT is able to stimulate lymph nodes and vessels found in the deeper layers of our skin (where 70% of our immune cells are) and in areas near our organs deep within our body which cannot be reached manually. It is estimated by the device manufacturer, Dr. Jennifer, that ELT is able to achieve in one session what would take 8-10 Manual Lymphatic Drainage sessions with no pain.

How does good lymphatic health help improve overall well-being?

 

Immunity

When foreign pathogens or undesirable substances enter our body, the immune system recognizes these foreign substances and an immune response is elicited. Good lymphatic flow helps to move lymph fluids along the lymph vessels. When it passes through a site containing these foreign substances and pathogens, immune cells are brought along within the lymph fluids to clear away these foreign harmful substances and reduces the congestion and stagnation of lymph fluid at the site.

 

Pain and Inflammation

By aiding and maintaining lymphatic drainage throughout the body, the body is supported to fight inflammation and reduce water retention and swelling. Inflammation is a response by the body to external trauma and infection.

 

Sports Recovery

During exercise, muscles use oxygen to generate energy in a process known as aerobic respiration. However, when undergoing intense exercise, there may not be sufficient oxygen and glucose available to produce energy. As a result, the muscles undergo anaerobic respiration, producing lactate to give that extra boost of energy.

Good lymphatic drainage can help alleviate the burn felt in muscles due to lactate by strengthening circulation and cardiovascular functions to raise lactate threshold as well as improve the recovery of muscle fatigue.

DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness), on the other hand, is due to micro-tears in muscle during high-intensity exercise. These micro-tears contribute to swelling and inflammation of the muscle.

In the case of DOMS, improving lymphatic drainage reduces the accumulation of interstitial fluids which reduces swelling and inflammation accumulated in the muscles to alleviate the symptoms of DOMS faster.

What can ELT be used for and what are the benefits?
