How Can We Help ?
Verita Life offers Lymphatic Therapy as part of a comprehensive programme aimed to stimulate the immune system and restore optimal flow to the lymph nodes.
This amazing form of lymphatic drainage allows for movement of the deep lymphatic channels unlike traditional forms of superficial lymphatic massage and compression.
Patients who suffer from lymph edema secondary to cancer, post-op complications (post lymph node dissection), chemotherapy, radiation, trauma, or chronic illnesses (asthma) all benefit immensely from the Lymphatic Therapy.
We’ve seen some remarkable success using this therapy alongside Immunotherapy and Cancer-Fighting protocols. Our state-of-the-art cancer-fighting regimen is part of a tailored and dynamic anti-cancer approach that has helped reduce the symptoms of cancer care in a safe and welcoming environment.
What is Lymphatic Therapy ?
The lymphatic system is an interconnected network of tissues and organs that work to eliminate toxic and unwanted materials from the body. Its primary function is to facilitate the migration of lymph, a fluid containing fighter and killer cells, throughout the body.
The lymphatic vessels could become congested when the body sustains injury or through misuse. Congestion could also be caused by the accumulation of fluid in the lymphatic vessels after the surgical removal of lymph nodes. This condition is referred to as Lymphedema.
Lymphatic Therapy is a massage technique used to clear the congestion, Lymphedema or any other kind, from the lymphatic vessels. This treatment technique is also referred to as Lymphatic Drainage Therapy or Deep Lymphatic Therapy
How does it work ?
This therapy has been well monitored by our nurses and physicians in order to decrease the risk of air embolism.
The mechanism is easy to understand: healthy cells need oxygen, whilst cancer cells despise oxygen; this is why they choose to live in a low oxygen environment, like most bacteria.
In fact, the only place in our bodies where there is no oxygen is the cancer site.
