Lymphatic Drainage

The Body Ballancer® is a high quality compression therapy unit designed to treat a number of circulatory related conditions to help manage the symptoms of Lymphedema and win the battle against water retention, cellulite and muscle recovery.  Body Ballancer® is a medical treatment, clinically proven and is the leading professional compression therapy system in the USA and Europe. In simple terms it offers a complete massage solution for limb, torso and thorax. Providing clients with spectacular results in a short time.

The system performs a massage from the feet or hands, up over the body, stimulating dermal and sub-dermal circulation.  This encourages blood flow that increases nourishment to tissues and speeds the removal of interstitial fatiguing waste products.  Gentle air pressure is created by inflating up to 24 overlapping cells located in each compression garment, which is worn over the treated area.  The cells inflate in sequence, applying smooth peristaltic unidirectional massage action that assists trapped fluid to move.

Lymphatic system

The lymphatic system is made up of vessels that transfer lymph fluid. If the lymph draining exceeds its maximum function then excess fluid accumulates and edema/water retention occurs. This is often seen in the early stages of inflammation.

Medical – What results can be achieved?

Lymphedema

This system is clinically proven to treat lymphedema and circulatory disorders. The Body Ballancer®  provides complete bilateral torso, groin, genital and abdominal treatments with the unique garments based on the principles of manual lymphatic drainage.  We will prescribe the treatment pressure and treatment time best suited to the clients condition and daily schedule.

Aesthetic – What results can be achieved?

Cellulite and Fluid Retention

If treatments are performed regularly, cellulite will be prevented and even eliminated. The lymphatic system works to transport lymph fluid in the body. It removes excess fluid from tissues, supports immune cells, and transports fat and fat cells to the circulatory system. Lymph fluid needs body movement to move efficiently around the body and unfortunately, if you’re not active enough and the conditions are poor, fluid can get trapped underneath the skin, leading to a volume increase and cellulite. The Body Ballancer® massage can reverse this build up due to fat and fluid being ‘pushed out’ from under the skin and dispersing cellulite, resulting in an improvement in your skin’s appearance and helping your skin return to a smooth state as the fat and water redistribute within the body. Treatment is determined based on a person’s stage of cellulite development and since cellulite is affected by a reduction of lymph flow, it is very important to concentrate first on trying to restore the natural lymph function.

Skin

Sun, pollution, poor diet and the natural ageing process all contribute to the drying, wrinkling and general loss of the youthful characteristics of your skin. The Body Ballancer® massage dilates the blood capillaries of the skin increasing the uptake of vital skin repairing nutrients and speeding the removal of harmful toxins. This improved circulation helps to moisturise your skin, making it look and feel better as well as improving skin texture while relieving any dullness or dryness.

Digestion

The Body Ballancer® can compress and massage the abdomen, relaxing abdominal muscles, giving healthy stimulation towards digestive harmony.

Circulation

Body Ballancer’s massage technique acts as an “external heart”, enhancing blood circulation by gently applying uni-directional undulating pressure on peripheral veins. This can help to improve the appearance of bulging leg veins. Blood circulation is improved, the elimination of toxins is facilitated, and MORE fresh oxygen reaches skin cells.

Heavy legs

Whether it’s sluggish, heavy legs following long distance travel or for people who are stood for long periods of time The Body Ballancer® will relieve these conditions resulting in a feeling of lightness and overall well being.

Pregnancy

Suitable for ladies who are suffering from swollen ankles and restless legs during pregnancy, this treatment is ideal to provide much needed relief in the latter stages and is perfectly safe.

ENJOYMENT! ‘Treatments’ are really relaxing. No work-out, sweat and exertion…just relax, read, or snooze for 40-60 minutes – then get on with your day, feeling so much better.

Sport – What results can be achieved?

Exercise

The quality of massage delivered by The Body Ballancer® aids speedy recovery from muscle soreness following sporting activity.

Like a sponge that is squeezed, a tight muscle cannot hold much fluid nor can it allow much fluid to pass through it. Among the obvious problems this can cause, it can leave you feeling fatigued and sore, reducing your precious energy reserves. Body Ballancer® massage releases contracted muscles and increases circulation. This increase in circulation brings energy producing nutrients and oxygen to your cells as well as carrying away metabolic waste products that can make you feel lethargic and drained.

Muscles

The Body Ballancer® encourages the nutrition and development of the muscular system by stimulating its circulation, nerve supply, and cell activity. Regular Body Ballancer® massage causes muscles to become firmer and more elastic. Furthermore preventing and relieving stiffness and muscle soreness. Injury to the body heals more quickly when regular Body Ballancer® massage is given because it decreases connective tissue build-up and scarring.
