What is Energetic Lymphatic Drainage (ELD)?

The body-mind-spirit is a dynamic unit. The body is meant to be in motion. This includes the fluid that surrounds your cells. ELD assists the body in releasing waste so that oxygen and nutrients can enter your cells. 
Imagine having a closet full of clothes. No more can be put in, and it is challenging to get the clothes in the closet out. ELD clears space at a cellular level so that what the cells need can easily get in, and what the cells do not need can easily get out. It removes congestion at the interstitial level of the body. 

ELD engages the subtle senses in a non-invasive and relaxing treatment that treats the upper body and lower body. 

How is ELD done?

ELD can be performed lightly on the body while clothed, or off the body while clothed, resting on a massage table. 

  What are the benefits of ELD?
– Reduction of swelling – Decrease in joint pain
– Weight loss
– Increase in energy 
– Sinus drainage 
– Regulation of bowel movements 
– Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles 
– Detoxification/Purification
– Emotional release 

Please note, this ELD technique is specifically designed by Dr. John Veltheim, founder of the BodyTalk System and the International BodyTalk Association. It is not the same technique as Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD), which must be provided by a Registered Massage Therapist.

What are sessions like?

A typical session is 60 minutes in length. This includes a check-in with you, the client, as well as a full session and recommendations for follow-up

Sessions are conducted in a private room. The client rests on a massage table, fully clothed. The practitioner only requires a gentle touch of the client’s hand or arm to administer the biofeedback technique. The practitioner can perform all other techniques either by gently placing hands or, tapping on the body, or by hovering hands or, tapping over the body, depending on the comfort level of the client.
