The lymphatic system is a network of tissues and organs that help rid the body of toxins, waste, and other unwanted elements. The primary function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph, a fluid containing infection-fighting white blood cells, throughout the body.As bacteria and toxins are captured and recognized in the lymph fluid, the lymph nodes infection-fighting white blood cells destroy them.
Toxins from processed foods, pesticides, environmental acids, medications, and dead blood proteins rest and inflame the interstitial space surrounding our cells if they are not ushered out. According to the International Academy of Lymphology, this causes the spaces between the cells to expand and inflammation occurs. The only way that the body can get rid of these excess blood proteins or excess toxins is through the lymphatic channels. To insure that your lymph is actively circulating, daily, muscle resistant exercise is required. Sometimes this is not entirely possible depending upon our circumstances, time constraints, medical restraints, and willingness.
For these reasons, BELD, Bio-electric Lymphatic Drainage, is a great therapy that initiates drainage and moves undesirable entities out of our body.
What To Expect
The therapist starts the session by gliding a bio-electric high frequency, photon light, lightly over your lymph nodes, starting with the upper quadrant of your body. Then in a upward motion the wand glides along the lymph vessels from the upper and lower quadrant of the body, going North, stimulating lymphatic circulation. The photon light ignites cellular respiration, the separation of nutrients from toxins, and, lymphatic circulation by stimulating your electrons, created by an electronic current from the photon light. As your cells get to work dumping toxins into the interstitial space surrounding them, these toxins and dead blood proteins continue to move into the flow of fluids, move through lymphatic channels, breaking debris into tiny particles and ushering out the waste through the lymphatic network. Drinking a high amount of water after this treatment is highly recommended to continue to flush out fluids.
People with electric devises such as a pacemaker, metal rods, pins, staples, or stunts, recent surgery or organ transplant, major cardiac problems, on blood thinner, hemorrhaging or bleeding, or pregnant cannot have BELD.
How To Prepare
Remove jewelry, makeup, lotions and deodorant. For best results do not shave or wax 24 hours prior to your session and no food or water 1 hour prior to your treatment. You’ll be asked to fill out an intake form and planning to arrive 10 minutes early for your first appointment is beneficial.
