Detox Services and Lymph Drainage

What You Need to Know

The Lymph System, Circulatory System and Digestive System are a Trifecta for a Healthy Immune System!

Together these systems work continuously to keep our body at peak performance. But…you have to do your part too!

Everyday our body is overexposed to chemicals, pollutants and toxins which is has to absorb, process and eliminate.

Most of us have between 400 and 800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells. The problem is excretion. If our systems are not functioning optimally, these toxic wastes linger, clogging the lymphatic system, leaving our cells and organs sitting in a very inflammatory environment. The end result is a compromised immune system.

Today’s sedentary lifestyle, injuries, tight muscles also lead to the lymph becoming stagnant.  To make it worse, the body can retain residue from any type of stagnation for months or even years.
Your health is not in a bottle of pills. It’s within you!

“When you invest in your health, the dividends are immeasurable”
Currently, the EPA has more than 85,000 chemicals listed on its inventory of substances that fall under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).  According to the WHO, an estimated 24% of the global disease burden and 23% of all deaths can be attributed to environmental factors.  Add to that list the burden of stress, an unbalanced work schedule, medications, etc.

The Lymph System is the body’s most under appreciated system, yet its job is to supercharge the immune system

The lymph system helps with immune surveillance by destroying bacteria, viruses, parasites and fungi from running throughout the body.

The lymph system is uni-directional and fights gravity. This means it must be pumped by the body’s movement to keep it circulating.  Bodily movement such as breathing, intestinal activity, and muscle action/exercise all assist in creating the flow throughout the body.  Just drinking more water is not enough to get your lymph circulating and toxins eliminated.

Fluid Flow is Life

You body talks to you.  Are you listening?  Signs that your body needs cleansing. Overall Weakened Immunity, Swelling/Edema, Allergies, Food Sensitivities, Arthritis, Chronic fatigue, Digestive disorders, Bloating, Insomnia, Skin conditions, Frequent Headaches, Frequent Colds/Flu, Sinus infections, Excess weight, Brain Fog, Parasites, Enlarged Lymph Nodes, Unexplained Illnesses…

Tuning Fork Lymph Flow Session

This session is specific for enhancing the flow of lymph throughout your body.  Tuning Forks are glided along your body as the vibration of the fork stimulates fluid flow in an upward direction towards main sites of drainage.  

The vibration helps to break up congestion along the lymphatic system, concentrating in areas where the nodes are most dense. The gentle vibrational massage facilitates the toxins to be released.

Preparing for this session or any other detox service, it is imperative to stay hydrated.  This assists the toxins to be released which helps to strengthen your immune system.

Cupping Lymph Drainage

Therapeutic body cupping has a very profound effect on the lymphatic system. Flow of Lymph, Blood and Interstitial Fluids are imperative in order to achieve optimal health. Trauma, inflammation, dehydration inhibit proper flow causing tissues to adhere together and  trapping toxins within the body.

The Lymphatic System, Digestive System and Circulatory System are aTrifecta for the Immune System!

Cupping is mostly thought of for muscle tension and pain, however, it is beneficial for cellulite, scars, constipation, plantar fasciitis, muscular/skeletal issues and other health concerns.  Aesthetically, it is used to reduce facial puffiness and reduce fine lines.

How it Works
Cups glide along the lymphatic drainage pathways, to assists the lymph to flow and release toxins before being filtered by the Liver and Kidney.

The tissue gently lifts and takes effect with negative pressure.  This type of pressure creates a gentle pulling action, which creates space for the separation of fused tissues or adhesions.  This vacuum effect draws the fluids to specific areas to encourage proper flow. 

Contraindications:  Depending on an individuals health, shorter sessions may be recommended to allow for proper fluid exchange and assimilation.

It is best to wait one hour after a meal prior to receiving Lymph Drainage cupping. Preparing for this session or any detox service, it is imperative to drink plenty of water before and after for proper hydration.

Ionic Foot Detox Bath

When a cell becomes dehydrated it clumps and fuses together with other dehydrated cells, blocking nutrients and fluids from entering, and toxic waste from exiting.  This is how a cell degenerates and becomes diseased.  The Ionic Foot Detox system gives the cells the jumpstart they need to open and expel toxins.

97% of health problems are caused by high acidity in the body in which the blood pH is lower than 7.45. The goal is to create an alkaline pH balance to protect your body from bacteria and viruses.

The Color of the Water are NOT the Toxins!
Some people have been misinformed.  During a session, the water in the basin will always change color due to the electrolytic reaction.

Did you know that we have approximately 4,000 pores in our feet?
Once the feet are in the water, the colors are also affected by oils being released from the sebaceous glands, the dead skin cells and the acidic/alkaline levels of the individual.

As the water color changes, it is indicative that there are accumulated toxins in certain areas of the body or from certain conditions.

Looking at the color chart creates a lot of curiosity but shouldn’t be the main focus. Focus on how you feel!

The good news is when your cells are healthy, you are healthy!

Understanding how the Ionic Foot Detox Works
This system works by electrolyzing water into negative and positive ions.  One of the byproducts is the hydrogen ion (H). The ionic array in the water creates a micro-charge that splits the Hydrogen molecules in the water (H2O).  The hydrogen ion passes through the large pores in the feet, into the circulatory and lymphatic systems and throughout the body.

Negative hydrogen ions are considered to be one of the strongest antioxidants. Due to its small size, the hydrogen ion also penetrates easily through cell membranes.

Inside the cell membrane, the negative charged ions attach and neutralize positively charged free radicals (toxins.). Once the toxins are neutralized, they are more easily removed out of the cells through osmosis.  When cells are able to receive vital nutrients and eliminate toxins, they will repair themselves.

Benefits: Strengthens the immune system, release toxic metals, purify lymph and blood, enhance nutrient absorption, reduces inflammation and fluid retention which relieves pain and tension, increases oxygen, energizes the body, weight management

Ionic Detox Research
  • In a 2008 study by Center for Research Strategies, 31 participants underwent ionic detox two times per week for 12 weeks. The amount of aluminum and arsenic in their blood was measured before and after the 12 weeks. The average blood aluminum level decreased by 46% from 79.8 ppb (parts per billion) to 43.1 ppb. The average blood arsenic level decreased 24% from 4.6 ppb to 3.5 ppb.
  • Aug. ’04 study by Carlos A. Lopez-Moreno, MD, there was a significant deposit of urea, creatinine and glucose in the foot basin in 12 patients with chronic illnesses.

Preparing for this session or any other detox service, it is imperative to stay hydrated.  This assists the toxins to be released which helps to strengthen your immune system.

Full Spectrum Far Infrared Sauna

Relax, Feel Rejuvenated, Vibrant and Alive

A Luxury a Therapy or Both
There’s no doubt that once you step into a sauna, you feel like you are spoiling yourself.  However, in todays culture with the excessive exposure to toxins, EMF’s and poor quality food and water, it also serves as a therapy to release toxins from our lymph system, as well as, the other organ systems involved with cleansing the body.

The skin works with the lymph system to detoxify directly through the pores.  This helps to rid toxins without needing to go through the liver.  It also creates a barrier that prevents bacterial colonization which helps your body to kill pathogens.

Sweating is a full-body experience. When we sweat the body releases endorphins and other “happy neurotransmitters,” including dopamine, norepinephrine, and serotonin which are associated with several positive functions and responses in body and mind.

Health benefits of sweating
  • Circulation increases throughout our organs, muscles, and tissue
  • Relief from sore muscles and joint pain such as arthritis
  • Better sleep
  • Relaxation
  • Weight management
  • Clear and tighter skin
  • Improved circulation.the elimination of salt from the body which can help prevent kidney stones from forming.

Chi Machine

The Chi Machine is beneficial for people with chronic muscle and nerve pain as it stimulates circulation and helps to bring balance to the flow of energy throughout the body.

The machine's therapeutic gentle movement involves focused movements on parts of the body that help to unblock the flow of energy where it may be stuck, causing swelling or pain.  It encourages flexibility, heals the nervous system, and provides a powerful lymphatic massage.

During this form of passive low impact exercise, oxygen is metabolized to produce energy which is dispersed to all parts of the body. This increases the felling of vitality and well being.

How the Qi Machine Works
The Chi Machine sways your legs back and forth at a set speed, mimicking the Japanese martial arts move known as “the goldfish”. This motion mimics that of a fish swimming in water.  When a fish swims, its tail gently swings and generates movement of the entire spinal column and all muscles. 

The Goldfish Method
When you lie on your back with your feet elevated on the Chi Machine's footrest, your legs swing gently from left to right in a relaxing pattern - you swivel from foot to waist, from waist to chest, and from the chest to the cervical vertebra and the head. The entire spinal column and all of its muscles are exercised. 

Users often experience an incredible rush of energy and a tingling sensation once the machine turns off.

Preparing for this session or any other detox service, it is imperative to stay hydrated.  This assists the toxins to be released which helps to strengthen your immune system.
