Lymphatic flow and drainage with the XP2 machine.

One of few practitioners in Iowa that performs ALT with the XP2 machine.

Johanna achieved her ALT certification through Rightway Health and Wellness where she is one of a few practitioners in the state of Iowa that performs this service (office is in Clive, IA, a suburb of Des Moines).

This modality assists the body further into breaking up lymphatic and encouraging proper lymphatic flow, more than manual lymphatic therapy. While both are still very beneficial options for the body, the XP2 machine has been shown to increase effectiveness by over 50% since it can penetrate the deeper lymphatics. This machine utilizes 3 inert gases within 2 glass bulbs that deliver a vibration signal that stimulates the lymphatic fluid.

ALT for neck and head utilizes the same XP2 machine, but just focus on the lymphs from the collarbone and up to the top of the head.

How to prepare

Ensure no lotions or topical oils are used at least a few hours prior to your session. Expect to remove clothing to your comfort level. If keeping any clothing on, it must be 100% organic cotton to still experience the benefits from the XP2 machine over the clothing. Drink filtered water with minerals, and consider taking a binder prior to and/or after your session.

Deep breathing is encouraged during the start of session to start the flow of your lymphatic system. Relax, breathe and let the practitioner prime and place glass tubes over your lymphatic ducts. They will circle and sweep over your skin, all with the direction moving up towards your heart, or into a major lymphatic duct. The sound is a subtle high pitched frequency noise that might be experienced louder when the transmission heads are closer to the ears.
