Assisted Lymphatic Therapy (ALT) or otherwise known as Electro-Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (ELT) is a non-invasive technology that helps to stimulate proper flow and drainage of the Lymphatic System. The lymphatic system is a complicated network of vessels, ducts, and nodes that moves fluid between the cells and tissues, and distributes the infection fighting and scavenging cells of the body. When functioning properly, it effectively cleanses the tissues and eliminates toxins from the body. These functions are critical to vibrant health! We call it the “information highway of the immune system” paving the way to maintaining life in humans and animals.
Lymph vessels can become clogged with protein deposits leading to sluggish flow (congestion) and impaired function. The causes of lymphatic congestion range from injuries and surgery, inactivity and poor diet, to emotional/ stress states, environmental toxins, hormone imbalance, and normal aging processes. When this state occurs the blockages cause a backup in the flow of lymphatic fluid, resulting in swelling or edema in the tissues and in various kinds of “symptoms.” Consequently, toxic waste matter cannot effectively be released from the body, nor can the immune system function at optimum performance. The result is a wide range of dysfunction and disease.
What is ALT or ELT?
ALT/ELT is a non-invasive, painless, calming, and relaxing therapeutic treatment that stimulates the lymph and breaks up congestion in the lymphatic system.
A lymph drainage instrument with two wands is passed slowly over the body, breaking down congested lymph through a combination of vibration, light, and electrical waves.
Once the congested lymph has been broken down, it can be drained, waste can be eliminated, and the free flow of lymph can resume.
The relaxing and pain-free therapy makes it an excellent choice for individuals looking to improve their health without compromising on comfort. Not only does ALT/ELT feel like a light touch massage, but its results can also be felt immediately.
The treatment time is 45 to 55 minutes. We have a dedicated therapy room and our trained professional will always respect your privacy while attending to your body’s needs.
Some of the many benefits of ALT/ELT:
*Assist with weight loss

*Supports post-mastectomy health
*Regenerates tissue, such as pre- and post-surgical scars, stretch marks and wrinkles – especially on the face
*Detoxifies body tissue
*Reduces cellulite tissue
*Supports preventative health maintenance
*Relieves discomfort from fibrocystic breasts
*Relieves chronic joint and muscle pain
