How does it work?
LymphaTouch® generates negative pressure over the skin, which pulls up the tissue. This pull of the tissue creates vertical and horizontal stretching that further stretches anchor filaments, causing endothelial openings of lymph vessels to dilate. This dilation helps lymph fluid to enter from the interstitial space to the lymph vessels 5.
When applied with lymphedema treatment, LymphaTouch® can be used in pulsating or sliding mode to guide the lymph fluid toward body’s healthy lymphatic system. From there, body’s own lymph transport mechanism carry the lymph fluid away to rejoin the venous circulation.
At the same time when the negative pressure pulls up the tissue, also vertical stretching of fascia structures takes place.
