LYMPHATIC BODY BOOSTER

The perfect companion to your nutrition, exercise and dry body brushing programme.
Do you have dehydrated skin, localised fat, orange peel skin, cellulite, water retention, stagnant lymph, sore muscles or bad circulation?

Designed to improve the hydration, tone and texture of the skin, this relaxing treatment may also assist with reducing toxins and fluid retention or stimulating the lymphatic system.  An ideal complementary treatment during Facials or with LED or Bioptron Light Therapy.

Our Lymphatic Body Booster may be performed as a stand-alone treatment, as an add on with your facial or in addition to Radio Frequency (RF) + Pulsed Electronic Magnetic Field Packages. Alternatively, specific Body Wrap packages for fluid retention or cellulite are available on request.

Lymphatic Drainage is a vital component of our body balance treatments to assist with eliminating toxins, fat and water retention from the body all while enjoying a relaxing massage. Lymphatic Drainage is also the perfect solution to reduce the effects of fatigue or jet lag and ideal for post-flight pick me ups.

A beneficial treatment to assist with increasing blood flow, it is also ideal as a complementary treatment for clients with a BMI over 50 to support weight loss, the elimination of toxins after fat freezing or those with lymphedema. Treatments frequency can be every other second day (1-3 times per week depending on condition)  to achieve optimum results.

Compression therapy is known also as Intermittent Pneumatic Compression (IPC). It improves blood flow movement in the limbs by stimulating vein support through specially designed garments and intermittent pneumatic compression pumps. Relaxing and beneficial in assisting with optimum circulatory functioning within the body, if there are medical concerns a doctors authority should always be given before the treatment.

IPC therapy may also help post-partum women strengthen loose skin (the result of pregnancy or weight gain). It improves skin nutrition and helps recover skin elasticity. The results can be assisted with dry body brushing daily at home along with Radio Frequency treatments in the clinic. IPC can help with swelling due to sitting for long periods during travel, especially air travel. In the most acute case, it can lead to something called “traveller’s thrombosis,” a grave ailment during which a blood clot forms in a deep leg vein. Heavy, tired legs, swollen feet and “cankles” are some of the less desirable effects of air travel and stationary lifestyles. IPC may assist in reducing bloating, swelling, cellulite, leg fatigue by improving oxygen flow, improving extracellular fluid clearing and lymphatic drainage throughout the whole body.

IPC may also benefit those suffering from poor circulatory and lymphatic movement as a result of their occupation. Posture can be impaired during long periods of sitting as well. It relieves tiredness and heaviness in the arms and the legs and improves general mobility.

For those with poor circulation issues, IPC can stimulate venous and lymphatic return blood flow, therefore maintaining the normal return circulation. Effective lymphatic drainage with IPC can promote the body’s naturally occurring toxin clearing functions to promote general body detoxification. More importantly, IPC can help prevent DVT in the aging population or those who smoke heavily, both of whom carry an increased health risk.

IPC is a safe and non-invasive treatment post-liposuction, and it provides immediate comfort. It also helps with pain and swelling, as well as skin recovery. IPC can be used to prevent the appearance of varicose veins and the prevention of hematomas after varicose vein stripping.

IPC therapy can be used to prevent hematoma and DVT in post-operative edema (post-mastectomy, etc.) and post-traumatic edema. IPC reduces leg swelling and augments the veno-lymphatic pump, which is essential for the recovery of the damaged microcirculation of the skin.

For diabetic neuropathy balance dysfunction, IPC increases nutritional supplies to the peripheral nervous system, which shows significant increases in standing time with eyes either open or closed by performing functional balance tests.

IPC promotes sleep management, improves energy and relaxation. Firm but gentle pressure can relax the nervous system. When deep pressure is applied to the body, the body switches from running the sympathetic nervous system to the parasympathetic nervous system. When the parasympathetic nervous system takes over, this causes the heart rate to slow down, muscles to relax and circulation to improve. The body then produces endorphins and releases dopamine and serotonin.

IPC improves recovery and endurance for active people that are competitive in sports. IPCs allow the lymphatic and cardiovascular systems to expedite the removal of metabolic waste, which is meant to speed recovery and filter the lactic acid out of the system.

There are contraindications for the IPC therapy such as: pulmonary edema, pulmonary embolism, known or suspected deep vein thrombosis, non-pitting chronic lymphedema, thrombophlebitis, acute inflammation of the skin such as cellulitis, severe peripheral neuropathy and active metastatic diseases affecting the edematous region.
