The lymphatic system, like the circulatory system, lies within the fascial system. Restrictions within the fascial system can create severe dysfunction within both systems.

The fascial system is essentially a glide system. The lymphatic and circulatory systems are designed to glide within the fascial system. A visual to help us understand how the fascial system affects lymphatic flow is to imagine a garden hose. Unimpeded, water flows freely through the hose. But what happens when someone steps on the hose or the hose kinks? The water is blocked.

Fascial restrictions are the equivalent of someone stepping on the garden hose and blocking the flow, eventually producing blockages, stagnation, restrictions and pain on sensitive structures.

We must address both systems – in order to enhance the flow we must remove the “kinks”.

Within our bodies: no system ever works alone, never gets injured alone, and never heals alone.

How Does Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage Help You?

Lymphatic Therapists work with flat hands, using all the fingers to simulate gentle, specific wave-like movements. These subtle manual maneuvers activate lymph and interstitial fluid circulation as well as stimulate the functioning of the immune and parasympathetic nervous systems.

It is shown that when these actions are accomplished, the results can be:

Reduction in edemas (swelling) and lymphedemas of various origins.
May alleviate symptoms of long haul COVID-19 symptoms.
Invaluable tool to improve healing after liposuction, cosmetic/plastic/aesthetic surgery, breast surgery, knee/hip replacements.
Alleviation of adiposis and cellulite tissue.
Detoxification of the body.
Anti-aging effects.
Regeneration of tissue, including burns, wounds and wrinkles.
Relief of numerous chronic and subacute inflammations, including sinusitis, bronchitis and otitis.
Relief of chronic pain.
Reduction in the symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, migraines.
Antispastic actions to relieve conditions such as muscle hypertonus and some forms of constipation.
Deep relaxation to aid insomnia, stress, loss of vitality and loss of memory

There is no known cure or medication for lymphedema. Temporary lymphedema is rare—in most cases, it is a lifelong condition.

But, with treatment, the symptoms can be relieved and managed, helping you control the condition. Certified Lymphedema Therapists are widely accepted in hospitals and clinics all over the world. Using exacting anatomical science and distinctive manual processes, LDT enables practitioners to detect the specific rhythm, direction, depth and quality of the lymph flow anywhere in the body.

From there they can use their hands to perform Manual Lymphatic Mapping (MLM) of the vessels to assess overall circulation and determine the best alternate pathways for draining body-fluid stagnations.

COVID LONG HAUL & VACCINE INJURY

The clinic has been seeing numerous inquiries from individuals who continue to experience extreme fatigue or persistently dealing with variety of symptoms after recovering from coronavirus.

People who continue to experience symptoms long after recovering from COVID-19 and testing negative for the virus are commonly referred to as “COVID long haulers” or having “post-COVID syndrome.” It is not possible for them to return “back to life” or to normal health levels for weeks or months after acquired the virus.

Some of the mentioned symptoms:

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) may be helpful in relieving the lymphatic system, which can be affected by a COVID-19 diagnosis. Although the reasons why some individuals are more likely to develop post-COVID syndrome are still unclear, it appears that those who had mild COVID symptoms are more likely to experience it. Symptoms vary from person to person because different organ systems can be affected. While no claims are made, based on current research, we are led to believe that therapies such as lymphatic drainage may be helpful in easing symptoms from long covid syndrome. To achieve relief, it’s essential to focus on modalities that support the immune system, and optimizing the lymphatic system is an excellent place to start. Having an optimally functioning lymphatic system is a step in the right direction. By improving the body’s ability to manage its lymphatic load, the total burden on the body is reduced.

With regular sessions individuals noticed less swollen lymph nodes, more energy, more brain clarity, better sleep, less bloating and improved digestion along with a host of other benefits.

Vaccine Injury

Over the past years, there have been reports of individuals experiencing adverse reactions to COVID-19 vaccines. Despite growing momentum in acknowledging these vaccination injuries, Big Pharma and some medical professionals have ignored the issue. Many health professionals are reluctant to consider the potential for vaccination injury in patients presenting with symptoms that can be traced back to the vaccine. This reluctance makes it challenging for sufferers to have their symptoms taken seriously or get access to specialist medical help to assist with diagnosis. The wide-ranging spectrum of side effects and symptoms includes severe heart palpitations, myocarditis, pericarditis, shortness of breath, unexplained muscle aches or weakness, nerve pain, tingling, headaches, brain fog, a feeling of pressure in the head or on the brain, and joint pain or weakness. Although not typically life-threatening, these medical issues can significantly impact one’s quality of life. Despite this, there is a degree of “shyness” amongst medical professionals and sufferers to discuss the issue, fearing that the information they share will be labelled as “conspiracy theorist” or “anti-vax movement”. As time passes, it is likely that more people will continue to experience adverse reactions to the COVID-19 vaccine.

The lymphatic system is a network of interconnected tissues and vessels that pull toxins, dead cells, chemical by-products, and other unwanted waste from different parts of the body. This makes the lymphatic network an important part of natural immunity, blood health, and overall body wellness. While no claims are made, based on current research, we are led to believe that therapies such as lymphatic drainage may be helpful in easing symptoms from long covid syndrome and vaccine injuries. Having an optimally functioning lymphatic system is a step in the right direction. By improving the body’s ability to manage its lymphatic load, the total burden on the body is reduced.

LYMPHATIC FACTS

Lymphatic Facts

Lymphedema may affect as many as 140 to 250 million people throughout the world.

Lymphedema usually involves the lower extremity (90%), upper extremity (10%), or genitalia (<1%).

The estimated number of Canadians living with chronic Lymphedema is 1-million.

Primary lymphedema is rare, affecting 1 in 100,000 individuals.


Secondary lymphedema is the most common cause of the disease and affects approximately 1 in 1000.

Lymphedema praecox is the most common form of primary lymphedema. It is defined as lymphedema that becomes apparent after birth and before age 35 years and symptoms most often develop during puberty. Lymphedema praecox is four times more common in females than in males.

Misconception: Lymphedema is swelling caused by too much water in a certain area of the body.

Fact: Lymphedema is a condition where protein-rich fluid known as lymph collects typically in the arms or legs resulting in pain, decreased mobility, and eventually can progress to fibrosis, fatty tissue overgrowth, recurrent soft tissue infections and disability.
