Lymphstar Pro Fusion
Why was the Lymphstar developed?
Company creators of Acturus began investigating the causes of immune problems and their solutions in 1990, after their son was treated for childhood leukemia. They evolved the Lymphstar Pro® product over many years beginning in 1994. Holistic health practitioners, whose focus is on preventive and restorative care, enthusiastically embraced it. The therapy protocols for using manual lymph drainage techniques were developed and refined. Input from researchers and thousands of customers have added to the effectiveness and integrity of both the instrument and our treatment regimens. LET practitioners work with traditional naturopaths and naturopathic medical doctors, massage therapists, chiropractors, holistic nurses, lymphatic and lymphedema therapists, estheticians, integrative medicine physicians, oncologists, cosmetic & other surgeons, colon hydro- therapists, medi-spas, physical and occupational therapists.
What is the Lymphstar Pro and How Does it Work?
Electro-biology devices have been in use for over 120 years! The exclusive innovation, the Lymphstar family of products are the pinnacle of this evolution. The Lymphstar Pro® emits a low energy vibration that is safe and relaxing to experience. It is an electronic device that uses therapy heads containing noble gases in glass tubes. The gases are excited (ionized) by a high voltage field at low current (amperage). The therapy heads emit various fields of energy when touched onto the skin. These vibrational energies are (1) an electrostatic field, (2) this field 'dynamically pulsed' at low frequencies to create acoustic waves, and (3) and an electro-pressure field is created by the use of two therapy heads on various locations. It also positively impacts the meridian and acupuncture point systems of the body as well. 1 (supported by scientific advisor, Professor Emeritus Tom Croley, an expert in the acupuncture system. When coupled with a therapist's caring attention you have a highly effective therapeutic system we call Lymphatic Enhancement Technology (LET).™
The Lymphstar Pro® Instrument - How is it used?
The two Standard Lymph therapy heads are lightly stroked on the skin by oneself or the therapist. They may also be left in place for 5 or more minutes; or one is placed, and one is moved around. The placements follow lymph drainage pathways, are over lymph glands, or on organs such as the liver. Next, specific problem areas may be addressed such as a painful knee, or congested areas such as the breasts or the digestive system. (Other heads styles are available for facials, acupuncture point work, etc). When seeing a therapist, they may feel the areas of congestion in places to assess the progress during a session. They will perform some Manual Technique on the skin and over the nodes to optimally guide the lymph flow and may go back over areas that require it. Sensations: The use of gloves to avoid static electric sensations is recommended. Therapists trained in our technique learn to ground the hands to avoid sensations. When using it on yourself you cannot feel the static sensations. However, if another person touches you while it is on, or if you touch large metal objects, you can feel it. It is just like a carpet zap in dry conditions when you ground to metal. With care, there are no unpleasant sensations.

It has helped countless clients to relieve sinus pressure and swelling to any body part's status post surgeries like mastectomies, shoulder repairs, knee repairs etc... I have had PT's absolutely floored with results I get with these clients. So needless to say, I adore this machine." Paula Barron, LPN, MLD/CDT, Northampton, MA
