How Does the Lymphstar Pro Fusion Medical Device Work?

It is a therapeutic, vibrational , massage instrument with a unique combination of energetic modalities. They are: 1) physical vibration with dynamic sonic, or acoustic waves 2)an electro-static field 3)electro-pressure created by multiple treatment points. All of these emissions are extremely low in energy so they are safe and gentle. This is a form of “vibrational energy”as they are perceptible to the bio-field or energy system of the body. By their very nature, the lymphatic vessels tune in and respond very quickly to these energies.

How Does Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy Work?

A therapeutic technique known as manual lymph drainage was developed in Europe over 25 years ago. Through delicate and very specific massaging techniques it was highly effective at reducing lymph-based disorders. It appeared to maximize cellular repair functions by amplifying the detoxification process within the tissue fed by the lymph. However, this manual therapy is very time intensive and tedious to perform. Within the last decade a hi-tech electronic medical massage device was found to assist and amplify the effects of manual lymph drainage, reducing the time and complexity of the therapy. The Lympstar, Lymphstar Personal Essence, Lymphstar Pro Fusion and now the Letesse Fusion are the finest of these energetic innovations. The combination of these two therapies together is the most efficient to get the lymph moving.

What Causes Lymphatic Congestion?

Some of the causes of Lymphatic congestion are:

  • Inactivity (lack of exercise)
  • Improper diet
  • Emotional stress states
  • Repressed communication
  • Infections
  • Injuries, bumps and bruises
  • Surgeries (scar tissue and adhesions)
  • Removal of lymph nodes
  • Environmental toxins, exposure to heavy metals, pesticides and herbicides
  • Cancer treatments
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Illness
  • Impaired circulation
  • Food allergies or sensitivities
  • Normal aging process (everything slows down)

Who Can Benefit from Lymphatic Therapy?

People who can benefit from Lymphatic therapy usually fall into three categories:

Those with acute conditions such a cancer, Lyme disease or other chronic illnesses that lymphatic therapy helps to support and compliment their other ongoing treatments.
Those with minor conditions such as sinus problems, fibrocystic/tender breasts or resistant infections that conventional treatments have proved ineffective.
The third category of people are among the walking unwell who are attracted to Lymphatic therapy as part of an integrative approach to improve or maintain health. This group is seeking a deeper understanding of their symptoms through preventative holistic health. Many people are under incredible amount of stress today which causes them to eat badly, not exercise enough, not get enough sleep etc. It is never too late to improve and boost your immune system and get back on track!

Because the lymphatic system is involved with all the other systems of the body, and because it is involved with prevention as well as healing, a session with a certified Lymphatic therapist would be beneficial for everyone.

Who Needs Lymphatic Therapy?

People and/or patients with any of the following:
  • Pre and post surgical patients. It reduces swelling and bruising, and speeds up the healing process by 50%
  • Cancer patients as a support during and after treatment
  • Lyme disease patients
  • Fibromyalgia patients
  • Women with fibrocystic and tender breasts
  • Capsular contracture or scar tissue around implants
  • Auto-immune patients
  • Chronic inflammation
  • Digestive complaints
  • MS
  • Chronic constipation
  • Unexplained weight gain and cellulite
  • Chronic pain
  • Patients who have had lymph nodes removed
  • Patients with Prostate issues
  • Edema and excess water retention
  • Poor circulation
  • Loss of energy
  • Chronic colds, flu and respiratory disorders
  • Lymphedema
  • Lipedema
  • Detox or cleansing patients. It helps to remove toxins
  • Those in need of scar reduction
  • Improves aging of the skin
  • Preventative, Preventative, Preventative!!

What Should I Expect from the Treatment Experience?

Your Lymphatic therapist uses a combination of gentle manual lymph node drainage techniques aided by a special medical device. This gentle noninvasive procedure is faster than manual techniques used alone and allows the therapist to accomplish in a 1 or 1.5 hour session what would normally take 4-6 hours manually. The Lymphstar Pro Fusion is applied by placing the transmission therapy heads on the skin of the patient. The placement sequences, timing, and applications vary according to patient individual needs. Use of the instrument on the body is followed by a Manual Drainage Massage. The hands on Lymphatic drainage techniques are made up of slow, subtle, gentle sweeping movements; thus mimicking the rhythmic pumping of the Lymphatic fluid through the body. The Lymphstar Pro Fusion and Letesse utilizes light and sound to de-congest trapped proteins and congestion within the lymph nodes and the lymph system, thus allowing waste products and toxins to slowly erode safely flowing through normal channels.

We have found that several, consistent sessions (at least one per week) produce the best results.
