Our lymphatic system is a part of our immune system and our body’s own sewer system. It contains miles of its own capillaries and vascular system that are separate from the circulatory system. Where the blood feeds the cells , the lymph cleanses the cells. The lymph fluids (which collect the cellular wastes) flow to the lymph vessels. Then on to the lymph nodes (which are our septic tanks). After which it moves to our elimination organs: kidneys, lungs, colon and our SKIN where they rid our waste.
Our lymphatic system can become compromised and congested for a multitude of reasons. Some of the more common are toxic overload from the environment & products, lack of movement, dehydration, trauma, stress & poor diet.
What is ALT?
Assisted Lymphatic Therapy (ALT) is a gentle, light touch non-invasive technique used to stimulate the proper flow of the lymphatic system. By using a combination of vibrational, light and electrical waves from two small handheld wands, one is able to help 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.
