Inflammation is often presented on the exterior as red, hot, swollen and is sometimes painful upon contact. It is often a reaction to external trauma or infection. As the immune system is triggered to combat the pathogens or unwanted substances, we can sometimes see or palpate swollen lymph nodes to identify an area of inflammation.
Electro-Lymphatic Therapy (ELT) aids the body by assisting and maintaining lymphatic drainage across the body. When ELT moves lymph fluids along, it passes through an area of infection, bringing lymphocytes to clear away unwanted substances and reduce stagnation in the area. By improving lymphatic drainage, patients observe a reduction in swelling and heat of the affected area.
ELT combines the general technique of MLD (Manual Lymphatic Drainage) with a handheld device designed to stimulate the lymph in a more efficient and effective manner. The system typically involves the application of various energy forms while imitating the MLD technique.
Over the last 30 years, various devices have been designed for ELT using mechanical/vibrational, thermal, light, and electrical energy to help encourage proper lymph drainage and flow. These devices typically use pulsating gas ionization systems also known as VLT (vibrational), ELT (electrical) or PLT (photonic). The XP2 is recognized as one of the most effective devices used in ELT combining multiple of such energy forms for maximum effect.
This work is facilitated by professionals including certified lymphedema specialists, chiropractors, nurses and massage therapists who are specially trained in assisted/ manual lymphatic drainage. The enhanced stimulation of ELT has benefited thousands of clients worldwide who had experienced limited response from MLD.
