Lymphatic Drainage (Veltheim Method)

The Lymphatic System

The lymphatic system is part of the circulatory system that comprises of a network of lymphatic vessels that carry clear fluid called lymph. Lymph circulates and bathes the body tissues with lymphocytes (white blood cells) and empties it back into the blood stream. Bacteria and other microbes are picked up in the lymph and trapped inside the lymph nodes, where they can be attacked and destroyed by lymphocytes.

Main functions of the lymphatic system:

  • Keeping a balance of fluid in the blood
  • Absorbs and transports fatty acids and fats from the digestive system
  • Defense against foreign substances such as bacteria, viruses, fungi and toxins

Veltheim Method of Lymphatic Drainage

The Veltheim Method of Lymphatic Drainage (VMLD) is based on a unique visualization/kinesthetic technique and does not conform to the traditional western medicine view of the lymphatic system. It adds to the selection of approaches that deal with physical and emotional issues related to the flow of lymph in the body.

Having a VMLD treatment assist on a physical level with the following:

  • Improves the functioning of the immune system
  • Balances the fluid in the blood
  • Restores hydration of the skin
  • Regeneration of tissue
  • Reduces puffy eyes and eye bags
  • Reduction in acute swelling around an injured site and chronic edema
  • Reduction of swollen ankles and legs during pregnancy
  • Reduces cellulite
  • Relieves sinus, colds and allergies congestion
  • Promotes healing of fractures, torn ligaments and sprains as the gentle treatment helps drain the tissue, reduces inflammation and improves healing
  • Relieves stress as the treatment is very relaxing
  • Removes harmful substances from an area (particularly molecules of emotions, as well as pain inducing chemicals and hormones that are stagnating in the breast tissue or around various organs such as the ovaries or the prostate)

Amazing and dramatic changes can be observed by a Lymphatic Drainage treatment. This treatment can be booked as a stand-alone treatment or built in with a BodyTalk session.

The treatment will take 45 minutes and clients have the option to remove their clothing down to their underwear or be fully dressed during the treatment. Adequate draping will be done if the client chooses to remove their clothes.
