Electro lymphatic therapy is up to 10 times more effective at relieving edema and lymphatic congestion than manual lymphatic drainage. This reduces the time and complexity of the the therapy dramatically. Manual lymph drainage does assist the body in increasing the flow of fluids by a gentle pumping and pushing motion. The distinction between manual and electro lymphatic therapy is significant. Lymph Purify accomplishes two critical things that manual therapy does not. It breaks up blockages of bacteria and blood proteins that have congested in the nodes or filters of the body. It also converts the thick stagnant lymph fluid back to more of a thin watery consistency so it can flow more easily.
