Lymphatic System & Fascial Treatments

The lymphatic system takes care of our immune system and dead cell removal; if there is injury, or tissue damage, even from surgery (a controlled trauma) there will be an extra accumulation of proteins, such as the GAGs (glycosoaminoglycans) that may be handled improperly by the tissue. The lymphatic system will participate in taking care of it. Even manipulation will produce body waste and the lymphatic system will take it away. The lymphatic system follows the fascial system. The fascia requires movement and the PhysioTouch offers a dimension I was not normally incorporating into my treatments. Chiropractors, PT’s, massage therapists and acupuncturists spend the majority of treatment pushing into the body. The device pulls tissue away from the body (fascial traction).

Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS) Therapy

There are definite healing benefits of the Deep Muscle Stimulator (DMS) therapy. Some people prefer soothing treatment and others prefer very heavy-duty deep tissue work. The DMS seems to appeal to both. I use the DMS to target those over-worked and aching parts of the your body.

Among the benefits of DMS therapy:
– dilates superficial blood vessels
– increases the rate of blood flow
– decreases blood viscosity
– increases lymph flow
– reduces post-surgical swelling and pain
– improves frozen shoulder
– reduces pain in overuse injuries of the knee
– reduces muscle spasm
– reduces muscle soreness
– prevents denervated muscle from losing bulk and contractile capability
– improves relaxation, thus accelerating physical repair.

I use the DMS on almost every client I see.
