Lymphatic Drainage Massage.

The Body Ballancer is an invigorating compression therapy system designed to deliver a comprehensive range of both aesthetic and wellness treatments. 

The body ballancer works by inflating compression garments containing multiple individual air chambers that, when filled create a unique massage motion on the body which stimulates the lymphatic system, accelerating lymphatic drainage, removing excess fluid and destroying waste, dead blood cells, pathogens and other toxins taking 30-60 minutes per treatment.

The Body Ballancer can be used to treat the following conditions: 

  • Lymphedema 
  • Cellulite
  • Fluid Retention
  • Digestion 
  • Skin Complaints 
  • Circulation 
  • Heavy Legs 
  • Muscle Recovery

A pair of thin leggings/ trousers are required for this treatment.

Cellulite and skin tone: 

Boosting the supply of fresh, oxygenated blood to the tissues will result in a significant improvement in cellulite and skin quality’ leaving it firm, toned and feeling smoother and softer. 

 

Detox & weight loss : 

No need for faddy diets or juice fasts, as the elimination of waste, toxins and fats will be accelerated through an enhanced lymphatic system.

Whether it comes from the finest extra virgin olive oil or the 3 a.m. burger van raid, all the fat we eat is absorbed by the lymphatic system before onward transmission into the bloodstream where it can be used as fuel for the body

Unlike other nutrients, fat cannot be absorbed directly into the blood from the gut because fat molecules are simply too large to be taken up by the tiny capillaries that line it; it would simply clog them up. Instead, it must be absorbed by another route – the lymphatic system.

What is digestion?

Digestion – or more correctly ‘the digestive process’ – is the act of breaking down liquid and solid food into the microscopic substances that can then be transported in the blood to provide energy and nourishment to all parts of the body.

Very simply, it can be summarised into four stages:

  • Ingestion – the process by which we introduce food into the body via the mouth and the actions that take place, such as chewing, mixing with saliva and swallowing.
  • Digestion – specifically covers the initial decomposition of the food and liquid ingested into a form that can be absorbed by the cells and tissues of the body. There are two types of digestion; mechanical digestion  includes both the chewing and grinding of food by the teeth as well as the churning and mixing of the contents of the stomach whilst chemical digestion refers to the action of digestive enzymes, acids, bile salts etc. which also begins in the mouth with action of saliva on food. Most of the chemical digestive processes however occur in the stomach and small intestine
  • Absorption and assimilation – the process by which digested food is absorbed into the blood and lymph and then taken (or ‘assimilated’) into the body tissues.
  • Elimination- the final stage of the digestive process, covering the excretion of waste products from the bowel as well as liquid waste from the blood via the kidneys and urinary tract.

Introducing the lacteal

Most of the absorption part of the digestive process occurs in the small intestine, which is lined with millions of minute finger-like protrusions called ‘villi’ which greatly increase its surface area, and therefore the rate at which absorption can take place.  Each villi has its own capillary blood supply, together with a specialised lymphatic vessel called a lacteal.

Water-soluble nutrients such as proteins, carbohydrates and certain vitamins and minerals pass into the blood stream through the capillary, where they are transported directly to the liver and onward to whatever organs and tissues of the body require them.

This is not so with the remaining fats and fatty acids, which take a different route, instead being absorbed through the lacteals. The resulting mixture of lymphatic fluid and fats – a milky-white substance known as ‘chyle’ – is carried through the lymphatic network and into the largest of the lymphatic vessels – the thoracic duct and thenceforth directly into the heart. It is only at this point that the fats we have eaten enter the bloodstream.

This has a number of implications, one being the importance of keeping the gut clean and healthy, including making sure that our lymphatic system is clear of any blockages and flowing freely. By doing so, we will enable the millions and millions of villi to quickly and effectively absorb the nutrients we have ingested,

But arguably the most significant implication regards the quality of the fats we eat.

Since the bad as well as the good fats pass through the heart before they have benefited from the detoxifying process performed by the liver, the quality of the fats we eat comes into very sharp focus. It is for this reason that we are constantly being reminded to reduce consumption of processed foods that are laden with trans and saturated fats and instead eat the more healthy mono and polyunsaturated fats to be found in oily fish, nuts, avocados and extra virgin olive oil.

A vital point that should be borne in mind when the next lecture about the virtues of Omegas 3 and 9 comes along!

Slimming and body contouring: 

The improvements in the lymphatic and circulatory systems will lead to the rapid elimination of fluid, reducing volume and puffiness in as little as a single session. 

Stress relief:

 

Improves the elimination of the free radical that are a by-product of the body’s stress-fighting hormones, recognised as a factor in premature ageing. 

Exercise: 

We all know that exercise is a vital part of a healthy lifestyle. And while a good run or workout can help us feel more energised, muscle soreness afterwards isn’t only unpleasant, but it can also increase the amount of recovery time we need, affecting our fitness goals.

Widely used by personal trainers, athletes and professional sports teams, Body Ballancer® can help you before and after exercise to improve your physical performance.

Body Ballancer’s special wave action moves along your legs, loosening tight muscle fibres while breaking down and removing lactic acid and other toxins from your system.

Body Ballancer® increases the flow of oxygenated blood, helping you feel lighter and less sore. It also recharges your muscles faster, ready for the rest of your day or your next workout.

You can also use Body Ballancer® before exercise. The increased flow of blood and oxygen helps to warm up your muscles without expanding the valuable energy you need for your session.

Improve liposculpture results:

Enlightened liposculpture practitioners now know that a healthy lymphatic system is extremely important when it comes to getting the most out of this expensive procedure. 

Whether performed surgically using the latest vaser technique or a non-invasive method swelling and bruising of the treated area will occur. However, steps can now be taken to ensure that this is minimised, speeding up recovery time improving results. 

One or two sessions with the body balancer right up to the day of the procedure will help boost lymphatic flow and clear any excess fluid from the system. After the treatment, a course of between four and six will minimise the bruising and swelling caused by the body natural inflammatory response to the trauma caused to the body tissues.

You will be helped into the Body Balancer. The garment will then be attached to the computerised air compression device. Once the treatment starts, the gradual and gentle inflation of the garment will provide a smooth flowing massage over the lower body, providing a relaxing experience. Once the treatment is complete the garment will completely deflate and you’ll emerge feeling lighter, energised and refreshed.  

usually 6 treatments are required to see results. 

The treatment takes from 30-60 minutes . 

we recommend wearing a thin pair of leggins/trousers and a clean pair of socks. We advise no bare skin should touch the garment for hygeine reasons.
