One of the important functions of drainage is the natural transport of waste products away from the tissues.
The human body contains five fluids essential to the proper healthy functioning of the body. They are:
- red blood
- blue blood
Stagnation of any of the fluids causes health issues that reflect on how we look and feel.
To be able to stimulate or balance at will any of the five fluids in a totally non-invasive way has enormous potential.
And it is possible to target any one of the fluids by using specific colors of light using PHYTO5®’s light machine known as the Chromapuncteur™ combined with the Biodraineur™ (drainage machine). The two pieces of equipment can be simply connected.
The mechanical function of the drainage machine (suction/repulsion within the glass cups connected to the pumps) stimulates the fluid movement while the light machine targets the selected fluid.
Massages are also recommended as a means to move fluids. Specially trained lymphatic massage therapists can do a very light and extremely slow massage targeting the lymph, however a good manual drainage is difficult to perform as the rhythm of the movement must be painstakingly slow and the pressure extremely light, requiring a sustained focus and significant physical effort by the therapist.
In a drainage treatment using the PHYTO5® Biodraineur™ (drainage machine) you hear the gentle humming of the pump of the drainage machine as you feel the gliding of its glass cups over your face or body. Before starting the machine, the technician has applied vegetal-based oil mixed with an essential oil on the area being treated. The oil facilitates the gliding of the cups on your skin and an airtight contact of cup against skin.
As the pumps alternatively suck in and release the skin layers, the cups are guided by the esthetician or massage therapist following prescribed pathways. The essential oil added to the vegetal oil promotes the movement of fluids below the skin.
Like most people, you will very likely enjoy the subtle aroma of the essential oils before the rhythmic humming of the pumps even starts. The gentle sound will help you relax so much that you might fall asleep during the drainage.
When lights are used, either as part of the drainage, or when applied on acupuncture points or chakras, you will most likely feel nothing more than the sense of relaxation you get from the drainage.
On the other hand, you might be like some people who feel a very subtle sensation from the energy of light. You might even feel the difference when different colors are selected.
When the PHYTO5® Biostimulateur™ is also used during drainage, the vibrating rubber tip of the module is brought over to touch the skin at the acupuncture point or the reflex zone. At that time you feel a gentle vibration whose rhythm changes as it is switched from one frequency to another.
The equipment never produces any pain or unpleasant sensation. There are no invasive frequencies produced and transferred and no electric currents are used on your skin. The machines are fully holistic, energetic, and natural in the work they perform.
Doing a full body manual lymphatic drainage takes well over an hour and a half of hard work. The PHYTO5® Biodraineur™ (drainage machine) is a very practical alternative. The machine is steady, fast, and tireless. It is also less demanding on the therapist, although as effective when using the Biodraineur™.
The different rhythms of suction of the machine help target the different fluids. An even more advanced and reliable method combines the Biodraineur™ with the PHYTO5® Chromapuncteur™ (light machine).
Although there are a few contraindications for lymph drainage, it is generally safe to say that most people will benefit from regular drainage, particularly people who fall into the Earth category in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
A good drainage gives instantly visible results making lymphatic drainage a very worthwhile spa treatment. It can be part of a facial, taking an additional ten minutes, or can be offered as a specific body treatment of under an hour when using the equipment.
