LDT, a wellness therapy developed by Bruno Chikly, is an innovative technique that gently massages and improves the circulation of the lymphatic system.
BENEFITS OF LDT
The lymphatic system is the secondary circulation system that is responsible for filtering impurities such as germs, toxins, large proteins and foreign bodies out of the blood before they reenter the heart. The circulation of this system encourages:
• Healthy Immune system
• Natural detoxification
• Reduction of edema/inflammation throughout the body (arthritis, bursitis)
• Pain relief
• Relief of Allergy Symptoms
• Beneficial Circulation
• Natural Healing
• Healthy skin
• Weight loss
• Relieve Muscle Spasms
• Natural Energy & Vitality
• Management of Diabetes
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING AN LDT SESSION
Clients are typically fully clothed and laying comfortably on a massage table. Should the client prefer or need to disrobe, they will be provided with proper draping. Sharon will use gentle, flowing movements on the skin that will encourage the lymphatic system to return to proper flow, resulting in detoxification of the body. Each session is very relaxing to the client and usually results in a nice nap! You can expect to see results immediately and see the full benefits of LDT within a couple of days.
For clients undergoing plastic surgery, Sharon recommends 3 sessions before surgery to ensure the lymphatic system is open and at least 3 sessions after surgery to provide proper drainage to the area treated.
LDT IS NOT RECOMMENDED FOR THOSE WITH:
• Fever and/or Infection
• Serious circulatory problems
• Major cardiac problems
• Internal bleeding
• Kidney failure
• Active Cancer
• Undergoing Chemotherapy/Radiation
Sharon does not offer Lymphatic Drainage Therapy to clients diagnosed with Lymphedema.
*Clients are advised to consult their health care provider before beginning any new treatment.
