Bio-Electric Lymphatic Drainage (BELD)
What is bio-electric lymphatic drainage?
Bio-Electric Lymphatic Drainage (BELD) is a type of therapy that uses a light beam
generator, which emits a stream of photons (negative ions). The BELD is the most
recent advancement of this technology- a vibration energy technology. That means
it emits energetic information to the energy field of the cells via harmonic sounds,
frequencies of light, and Noble Gas Ionization. These are known for their
antibacterial and antimicrobial properties. This light beam emits a heartbeat
pulsation that when combined with a manual lymphatic drainage massage, helps
improve the flow in blood and lymph, while simultaneously loosening waste from
cells, which assists in the removal of toxins, poisons and trapped proteins, literally
cleaning the spaces between cells and allowing waste products and toxins to
slowly and safely flow out through normal channels. The BELD can be relaxing like
a soothing massage, allowing the body to go into the parasympathetic healing
mode, allowing the body to access its own healing ability from the autonomic
nervous system. It is faster and more complete than manual techniques used
alone, allowing the therapist to accomplish in a one and a half-hour session what
would take many hours without the vibration energy technology.
What does the lymphatic system do?
It transports approximately 45% of cell waste, moving toxic substances out of the
body through the bloodstream & colon. The lymphatic system handles toxins that
enter the body through external sources, such as food or pollution, but also
handles internally produced toxins that are a result of normal metabolic processes.
The lymphatic system produces lymphocytes, which help defend the body against
antigens, distributes immune cells throughout the body, & absorbs lipids from the
intestine & transports them to the blood.
Why might one need/ benefit from BELD therapy?
Lymphatic flow can stagnate/ stop for many reasons such as fatigue, stress, emotional shock, lack of physical activity, and/ or certain food additives/ poor diet. If lymphatic circulation slows down, the supplying & generation of cells is poorly
carried out. Consequently, toxins accumulate, hastening the aging process & opening the gates to various health problems. Lymphatic congestion hinders the body’s ability to heal itself due to buildup of toxins/ waste. The lymphatic system is interactive with every organ in your body & is directly related to immune function & efficiency. Our technique is slow, subtle, & uses gentle sweeping movements, mimicking the natural rhythmic pumping of the lymphatic system. The result can enhance recovery rates by loosening proteins that are stagnant, causing retained fluid & congested areas to flow. Stagnation is reversed, & the lymph system is now free to perform its normal cleansing functions!
If your answer is yes to any of the contraindications below, you may not be able to receive BELD treatment.
If you have found breast lumps, cysts or any other symptoms on the breast or other parts of the body; they should be thoroughly checked by a medical Doctor. If necessary you may need to have further clinical tests before undergoing BELD treatment.
If you have cancer or you are undergoing treatment for cancer, it is your responsibility to seek advice from your consulting doctor before you can receive BELD treatments.
If you are pregnant (unless referred by consulting Doctor)
If you have an electrical implant or pacemaker.
If you have had recent surgery (within the last 4 weeks).
If you have had any pins, staples or metal plates anywhere in your body.
If you have had any significant trauma recently (auto accident – falls – etc.).
The client fully undresses and lies on a massage table under a sheet/blanket in a warm room with soft lights. Over the course of the next 1 1/2 hours, the therapist uses the “Inspiration," a hand-held wand that is lightly moved over the skin, producing a negative energy field, which allows the blood and lymph fluid to circulate freely. The therapist uses a combination of bio-electric lymphatic drainage and manual lymphatic drainage massage, which is slow, subtle, and gently sweeping movements. This motion mimicks the natural rhythmic pumping of the lymphatic system. The result can enhance recovery rates by loosening proteins that are stagnant, causing retained fluid and congested areas to flow. Stagnation is reversed, and the lymph system is now free to perform its normal cleansing functions!
In addition, the session is enhanced with the use of an amethyst crystal BioMat, which is a combination of far infrared rays, negative ions, and the conductive properties of amethyst channels; this helps to relax the muscles and increase local circulation...and on cold days, the heat simply feels divine. Other potential benefits as indicated by the Richway International manufacturer include: pain relief, immune system boost, reduced stress & fatigue, hormonal balance, removal of toxins, and rejuvenated skin cellular functions. You can read more about the BioMat and its benefits at the following site:
The culmination of the BELD session, the use of the Amethyst Crystal BioMat, essential oil aromatherapy, integrative approach with resident doctors, attention to the mind-body connection, and the serene atmosphere of ambient lighting and soothing music all contribute to the BELD session being a truly restorative, one-of-a-kind experience at NaturalStart Medicine.
Before your Session:
Avoid lotion/oil, deodorant, perfume, makeup. This prevents the light technique from being blocked to achieve maximum benefits. These skin products could be otherwise absorbed.
Avoid drinking 1 hour before session for comfort while lying down. It also helps to empty your bladder.
Avoid irritants like: coffee, soda, sugar, alcohol, etc., the day of the appointment.
After your Session:
Clients may feel relaxed for a few hours after the appointment.
Clients might have more volume when urinating. It may possibly have a stronger smell and different color and be foamy or filmy as the lymph drains first towards the kidney/bladder.
It is important to drink more water than normal to assist the cleansing.
How Many Sessions Do You Need?
BELD may be taken every other day to help a congested system. It can also be taken as needed or as desired for immune strength or relaxation. For maximum benefit of a lymphatic cleansing, we recommend Bio-Electric Lymphatic Drainage followed by Colon Hydrotherapy and/or ionic foot cleanse. These combinations help in better cleansing by first breaking up toxins and then eliminating them from your body.
Single 1 1/2 Hour Session: $165
* Reduced rate of $115 available for a 1 hour session upon request. However, please be informed that the therapist may not be able to sufficiently address and focus on areas of concern during a shorter session. The full 1 1/2 hour session is recommended to be able to do a full body assessment and spend adequate time on areas of congestion.
BELD add on: $55
* add on BELD therapy in conjunction with colon hydrotherapy body rejuvenation session
