LET is designed to detoxify the soft tissue, bolster immune system function, and to reduce swelling and congestion in the tissues. The results are cumulative, and a series of sessions is the most effective way to achieve optimal results. Individual sensitivity level is assessed in the initial session to determine the best treatment plan. 

Note: that LET is not a lymphatic drainage massage. It is an accelerated cleaning of the lymphatic system done using medical electronic instrumentation called the Aria, which is trademarked by the company Arcturus Star Products. LET does not require hands-on techniques to be effective.  

The Aria is an FDA registered device. It uses a combination of electromagnetic energy fields to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, decongests soft tissue, and promote healing.

___________________________

What to Expect During a LET Session: The treatments are done in a massage setting, but this is not a massage. LET is applied directly to the skin through a medical grade glass bulb. A series of manual lymphatic strokes are applied before and after the LET application to evaluate specific lymphatic structures.

What to Expect After a LET Session: The LET treatment feels relaxing and gentle during application, however, it is encouraging the detoxification of tissue that potentially has years of waste build up and toxins.

How to Prepare for Your LET Session: 

Be well hydrated for a day or so before your visit and continue to hydrate following treatment. Adequate hydration will help to reduce possible side effects associated with detoxing. 

Avoid applying thick lotion, cream, or oils on the skin prior to treatment.

No deodorant. It can be brought with and put on after.

To receive LET on the face, arrive with a clean face, no make-up. Or bring make-up wipes to remove and clean face prior to treatment.

No wet hair.

Plan to remove all jewelry surrounding the neck, face, and on the hands or wrist.

Eating a light meal is ok beforehand, but not a large one.

LET Sessions can be done bi-weekly.
