Lymphatic Drainage

Harnessing the Power of Nature to Drain the Lymph

Bio-Electric Lymphatic Drainage (BELD) is a type of therapy that uses a light beam generator, which emits a stream of photons (negative ions). This light beam emits a heartbeat pulsation of negative ions that when combined with a manual lymphatic drainage massage, helps improve the flow in blood and lymph. Simultaneously, this process loosens waste from cells which assists in the removal of toxins, poisons and trapped proteins, literally cleaning the spaces between cells and allowing waste products and toxins to slowly and safely flow out through normal channels. It is faster and more complete than manual techniques used alone, allowing the therapist to accomplish in a one and a half-hour session what would take many hours without the vibration energy technology.

What does the lymphatic system do?


It transports approximately 45% of cell waste, moving toxic substances out of the body through the bloodstream & colon. The lymphatic system handles toxins that enter the body through external sources, such as food or pollution, but also handles internally produced toxins that are a result of normal metabolic processes. The lymphatic system produces lymphocytes, which help defend the body against antigens, distributes immune cells throughout the body, & absorbs lipids from the intestine & transports them to the blood.



Lymphatic flow can stagnate/stop for many reasons such as fatigue, stress, emotional shock, lack of physical activity, and/ or certain food additives/ poor diet. If lymphatic circulation slows down, the supplying & generation of cells is poorly

carried out.


Consequently, toxins accumulate, hastening the aging process & opening the gates to various health problems. Lymphatic congestion hinders the body’s ability to heal itself due to buildup of toxins/waste. The lymphatic system is interactive with every organ in your body & is directly related to immune function & efficiency. Our technique is slow, subtle, & uses gentle sweeping movements, mimicking the natural rhythmic pumping of the lymphatic system. The result can enhance recovery rates by loosening proteins that are stagnant, causing retained fluid & congested areas to flow. Stagnation is reversed, & the lymph system is now free to perform its normal cleansing functions!

The Session

The client fully undresses and lies on a massage table under a sheet/blanket in a warm room with soft lights.  Over the course of the next 55-85 minutes, the practitioner uses the “Inspiration," a hand-held wand that is lightly moved over the skin, producing a negative energy field, which allows the blood and lymph fluid to circulate freely. The therapist uses a combination of bio-electric lymphatic drainage and manual lymphatic drainage massage, which is slow, subtle, and gently sweeping movements. This motion mimics the natural rhythmic pumping of the lymphatic system. The result can enhance recovery rates by loosening proteins that are stagnant, causing retained fluid and congested areas to flow. Stagnation is reversed, and the lymph system is now free to perform its normal cleansing functions! In addition, the session is enhanced with the use of an amethyst crystal BioMat, which is a combination of far infrared rays, negative ions, and the conductive properties of amethyst channels.

The BELD, along with the use of the Amethyst Crystal BioMat, essential oil aromatherapy, an integrative approach with resident doctors, attention to the mind-body connection, and the serene atmosphere of ambient lighting and soothing music all contribute to the BELD session being a truly restorative, one-of-a-kind experience at Cleanbody.

How Many Sessions Do You Need?

BELD may be done every other day to help a congested system. It can also be taken as needed or as desired for immune strength or relaxation. For maximum benefit of a lymphatic cleansing, we recommend Bio-Electric Lymphatic Drainage followed by Colon Hydrotherapy and/or ionic foot cleanse. These combinations help in better cleansing by first breaking up toxins and then eliminating them from your body.
