Lymphatic vessels are a vascular network connecting the tissues with the
venous system. In evolutionary terms, they develop from embryonic tissue. Very
fine initial lymphatic vessels start blind in the tissue. They flow into larger
transport vessels and finally into the right and left venous arches. Lymph nodes are incorporated in the lymph vessel
system. Lymph filtering through these nodes is cleaned of foreign material and
Vodder method uses spiral or circular movements. During these movements, there
is an increase in pressure up to approximately 30 mmHg (similar to the weight
of a nickel coin) and then a decrease to approximately zero. This change in
pressure produces an increase in the motor activity (contractions) of the
lymphangions by stimulating the mechanoreceptors of the lymph vessels. This
promotes filling of the initial lymphatic vessels (ILVs), which also increases
the total lymph volume transport
(movement / volume / flow). The direction of the applied pressure of the proper
strokes corresponds to the direction of lymph drainage (generally toward the

normally works on dry skin without lubrication.
strokes are repetitive, lengthy, uniform, and rhythmic. This creates an
involuntary sympathicolytic effect, thereby reducing the activity of the

The BTM Massage
(Better than morphine)
Created by and dedicated to Mr. Dick Rakemaker
Massage has proven to be extremely useful for some hospice patients in
managing stress and alleviating pain, which can reduce the need for
psychotropic and narcotic medications, all of which have their own
negative side effects.
A primary benefit of massage for those who are less mobile or bedridden
is its use in helping to prevent pressure sores. Once referred to as
"bed sores," these skin ulcerations are most likely to occur over bony
areas of the body, such as the tailbone, buttocks, elbows, shoulders and
heels, that are in constant contact with a mattress.
Hospice patients may experience dry or itchy skin as a side effect of
inactivity and drug therapy, or as a reaction to body systems beginning
to shut down. Such a condition can cause further agitation for a person
who is already feeling anxious, weak and vulnerable. A moisturizing
massage lotion and a special blend of Hawaiian oils helps alleviate dry skin and helps to relieve pain and itching. It feels soothing and
nurturing, and can help calm a troubled spirit.
Massage is an excellent way to enhance quality of life for a hospice
patient. It can help restore feelings of self-acceptance and self-esteem
to a person whose body has been invaded by a debilitating, perhaps
disfiguring, disease. It addresses feelings of isolation and loneliness.
The right touch at the right moment can be far more effective than
words in acknowledging a person's suffering, and offering comfort and
Touch continues to be an appropriate care giving technique when a
person becomes less responsive or is no longer able to communicate
verbally. Touch may even become the primary means of communication at
such a turning point.

Cold And Flu Season Immune Booster
the Winter or Spring, when the temperature starts changing, the flu
becomes a hot topic. The common symptoms
are easily recognizable such as chills, fever, sore throat, muscle
pains, severe headache, coughing, weakness/fatigue and general
discomfort. Although the symptoms of the cold can be mistaken for the
flu, either can be quite miserable. Rain drop is also a great way to
help detox and help rejuvenate your body. The rain drop treatment is
also referred to as a chiropractor in a bottle. It helps align the
bodies spinal system great for those that have spina bifida. Recommended
treatment from many chiropractors.
We have had plenty of
information on how the flu is spread. The main target of the virus is
the respiratory system. Flu can be highly dangerous for children, the
elderly, or people with a weak immune system.
co-workers, teachers and children work hard to stay away from discharges
from the mouth and nose from infected persons. We know that washing
our hands can be the best prevention. We will discuss what to wash or
clean with to boost your immune system at a later time.
interesting fact: The influenza virus has great genetic variation, this
can cause the frequent epidemics, caused by different strains of the
virus. Understanding how a virus works is helpful. The virus can
modify itself in each host. This makes treating a virus tricky with
Usually the vaccine is reformulated each
season for a few specific flu strains but because of the virus’ ability
to mutate, they cannot possibly include all the strains actively
infecting people in the world for that season. To make a vaccine it
takes about six months to formulate and produce the millions of doses
required to deal with the seasonal epidemics; occasionally, a new or
overlooked strain becomes prominent during that time and infects people
although they have been vaccinated given for virus treat the symptoms to
make you more comfortable and aren’t actually treating the virus
GOOD NEWS: Virus are sensitive to natural compounds
that are found in the essential oils. Research has found that the
influenza virus is particularly sensitive to essential oils that are
high in monoterpine phenols and terpenoid ketones. Research has also
found that essential oils have a powerful impact on the immune system to
protect us. The primary reason is the fact that the essential oils and
our cells/tissue are lipid soluble. Further, research has shown that
many of these oils raise chemical markers in the body which indicate
positive stimulation of the immune system. Essential oils may provide a
dual-protective effect: by increasing the strength and efficiency of our
immune response AND by limiting the ability of viruses to replicate.
So why the Raindrop Technique? The Raindrop Technique utilizes 9
different essential oils that have been heavily researched. These 9
essential oils have been selected to work together when combined to
simultaneously kill viral and bacterial pathogens, reduce inflammation,
support the immune system, ease respiratory discomfort, relax stressed
muscles, curb digestive upset and relieve body and joint discomfort, as
well as balance energy, lift the spirit, restore calm and increase the
ability to concentrate. The entire technique takes about 45-60 minutes
to complete, and the oils continue to work in the body for up to one
week. Safe for children and also helps children with ADHD and ECD
explosive compulsive disorder. Continues to work up to 6 weeks after
Can you see how powerful it could be during the flu session to have a Raindrop once a week?
We would love to teach you how you can share this technique with your family! Ask your therapist.
CAUTION: The Raindrop Technique is not a cure-all or a magic bullet. A
healthy body is the result of a well rounded program of exercise,
proper diet and nutrition. Health is everything we do, say, hear, and
eat. The Raindrop Technique is only a tool to help us restore balance.

- Ion Cleanse Session $25 add to any massage session for only $20
This is a relaxing way to get rid of the toxins present in the
body. You just have to sit on the chair, with your feet dipped into the
water container. A flow of warm water will flow under your feet and
the positive and negative ions in the water will attach themselves to
the toxins present in the body. Toxins that are insoluble will also
dissolve in this water. This service is best right after a great massage!
HEALTHY DETOXIFICATION Detoxify and cleanse the whole body by using the Ionic Total Body Detox System which uses negative ions
to gently pull toxins out of the body. Ion generating technology has
been around for several decades, and by using a alternating positive and
negative ion charge during the treatment it is possible to remove unwanted toxic material from everyone regardless of the electrical charge the toxins may hold. Osmosis
is a scientific term used to describe the movement of particles through
a cellular membrane from a higher concentration to a lower
concentration. The lower concentration in this case refers to the ion
field set up by the array being placed in the water. With this system, it is possible to reduce pain, swelling, edema, and other symptoms caused by long term life style and chronic toxic build up.This is a very efficient way to remove toxins regardless of
where they are in your body. The more toxins we maintain the faster we
age and the faster our bodies break down. The immediate benefits
are an increase in energy and overall well-being, weight-loss and an
increased metabolism, improved digestion which will help restoring
balance to the body.The aging process is slowed down and the skin is able to rejuvenate its self correctly.You
must understand what is coming out of the body is microscopic and may
not always be visible. With no feet in the water as with feet in the
water you will see a slight orange/brown color varying degrees depending
on your water. This is normal with the Ionic Total Body Detox System, because of the strength of the system it also causes more of a reaction with the impurities of the water.
