Lymphatic Enhancement Technology - L.E.T.
Lymphatic Enhancement Technology L.E.T. is a proven technology for effective treatment of tissue congestion. The lymphatic system is the most underrated part of our circulatory system. Lymphatic fluid is more plentiful in our bodies than blood, yet most traditional health-care providers rarely address the lymphatic system as it relates to disease and optimum health.
L.E.T. is a process that decongests the lymphatic system. L.E.T. enhances detoxification and health by improving lymphatic circulation up to 10 times faster than traditional manual lymphatic drainage. The therapy unit emits a combination of vibrational energies (an electrostatic field, low frequency acoustic waves, and an electro-pressure field) which clear away randomly bonded proteins, excess fluid, and blockages in the lymphatic system. It also stimulates the meridians and acupuncture points of the body and is extremely relaxing to experience.
Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy (L.E.T.), a new and innovative approach to lymphatic release.
Combining both the use of an electronic device and manual stimulation techniques. L.E.T. improves lymphatic release and increases lymph flow. The Lymphstar ProFusion comes from the Lymphstar Line of products and is manufactured in America. The device provides various fields of frequencies via electrostatic current, sound waves and light therapy with the intention of stimulating the lymphatic capillaries to increase the fluid movement, removing metabolic waste and assist with breaking down protein-rich fluid in the tissue space.
L.E.T. is designed to detoxify the soft tissue, improve immune system function and to reduce swelling and congestion in the tissues. When the lymph system gets sluggish or blocked, inflammation begins and it becomes a breeding ground for viruses, bacteria and even cancer cells. A series of sessions is the most effective way to achieve the best results.
The sessions are done in a relaxed massage setting, but this is not a massage. You will need to disrobe, but you are covered during the session. The Lymphstar Pro Fusion uses several different types of vibrational energy that are recognized by the body to encourage healing.
The machine works in 3 ways:
- Electrostatic Current – a safe, highly regulated electrostatic field. This is an electric current at extremely low amperage. This current activates the parasympathetic nervous system (turns off “fight or flight” response). It also ionizes the tissue, which causes waste that is collected and sitting in the soft tissue to break apart and move into the lymph system where it is flushed out of the body.
- Sound Waves – Frequencies and harmonics emitted from the device are between 0 and 1,000 Hz, these frequencies resonate in the body with specific organs and tissues, helping to restore them to a balanced state. These sound waves also have a mechanical effect on the waste in the tissue, allowing it to break up.
- Light Therapy – Near infrared, red LED, and blue light are also used. Near infrared and red light help to reduce inflammation, swelling and discomfort. The blue light helps to balance the hormones in the body.
Who can benefit from LET?
While L.E.T. is beneficial for many clients and pets, there are a few contraindications for this therapy.
- Individuals with Pacemakers, other Implanted Medical/Electrical devices, or medicine pumps
- Congestive Heart Failure
- Individuals with known blood clots or history of blood clots
- Undiagnosed lumps or tumors
- Active skin infections, or open wounds at time of treatment
- Breast implants – we can work around the older versions; the new ones are more solid.
- Injectables – botox, juvenderm, collagen or fat fillers. We need to know precisely where these are.
Your health and wellness is important to us. Disclosure of all medical conditions and health concerns prior to your first session will assist our Lymphatic therapists in determining if L.E.T. is an appropriate therapy for your individual needs and concerns. Certain pre-diagnosed conditions may require you to obtain a doctor’s approval prior to treatment.
Specific Conditions L.E.T. may help
Acne – cleans tissue internally so deeper-seated eruptions do not occur.
Breast Tenderness/Swelling – reduction in swelling and discomfort in breast and underarm.
Cancer – This is listed as a contraindication on the Arcturus website. People addressing cancer with this treatment to take the training. This helps to get the chemotherapy out of the body as quickly as possible after it has done its job. This also helps to clear out the dead tumor cells, as they swell to 5 times their size when they die and can cause major backup if left to sit in the tissue. I need to know if someone has cancer, where or not they are treating it. Must wait 72 hours after chemo treatment.
Cellulite – is a lymphatic problem. Therapy over time helps to minimize and smooth out skin.
Cold/Flu – reduction in duration.
Dental Issues – post surgery infection. Pre-surgery helps keep tissue healthy.
Digestive issues – Most of the lymph is in the abdomen. This reduces the waste around the organs and actually aids digestion, as the small intestine cannot digest everything. About 70% of our immune system is found in the GI tract. Colitis and IBS are considered auto-immune disease, and this therapy helps to strengthen and balance the immune system.
Heavy feeling in limbs – usually a structural blockage at underarm or groin. Upper body is quicker. Lower body may require several visits.
Joint Stiffness – often there is fluid around the joint or in a joint closer to the drainage point, preventing flow.
Leg Swelling – This condition is surprisingly challenging because the lymph needs to travel all the way up to the clavicle on the left side. When someone is seeking lymphatic drainage for leg swelling, please be aware that it may not get to the legs immediately. Usually there is a lot of blockages in the abdomen that has built up in the tissue for years. You will not notice a reduction in swelling even when we do not work on the legs because of this.
Lipomas – benign fatty tumors. These also usually take several visits to dissolve. However, sometimes it is only one visit.
Lymphedema – If it is very swollen, that is permanent, but it helps symptoms greatly. Prevention of this condition is where this work makes more of a difference, or in its early stages.
Nasal & Sinus Congestion – immediate for acute issues.
Orthopedic Problems – Occasionally, these issues will have dramatic pain reduction.
Reproductive issues – Fibroids, cysts, scars and many other issues in this area will benefit. There is often a lot of scar tissue from childbirth, abdominal surgeries and endometriosis. The sessions will help to get all the waste out of the area so the tissues can heal.
Scar Tissue – Either internal or external. This takes a longer series of sessions.
Swelling at the clavicle area – this is where lymph drains into the blood and is often congested.
Swollen Lymph nodes in neck – these flushes them and reduces them in size. The exception is serious illness.
TMJ – Helps to reduce the tension around the jaw, and at the base of the skull.
What L.E.T. does not help
Structural issues especially in the back. Disc problems, spinal problems, etc. This will help reduce general back pain because it decreases inflammation in the soft tissue, but it will not actually solve your issue.
