Vibrational Lymphatic Therapy for Improved Lymphatic Wellness
Vibrational lymphatic therapy (VLT) is also called “whole body vibration” or “lymph drainage.” This form of lymphatic therapy can improve lymphatic flow, improve flexibility, build strength, enhance blood flow, and reduce muscle soreness. Vibrational Lymphatic Therapy can also lower stress by reducing the stress hormone cortisol.
Vibrational lymphatic therapy can also:
- Alleviate stress
- Boost metabolism/immunity
- Help drain excess tissue fluids
- Improve circulation
- Improve strength and balance in older adults
- Lower bone loss
- Reduce pain
Why Your Lymphatic System is Important
Your lymphatic system is a network of vessels. These vessels carry “lymph,” an alkaline collection of protein molecules, fats, glucose, salts, urea, and white blood cells.
As lymph liquid accumulates in your tissue cells; it is transported away from the tissue and eventually returned to your blood. Lymph can help cleanse your body by removing wastes and infectious bacteria.
Your heart, intestines, and liver have lymphatic tissue. These organs are critical to your quality of life. Protein, water, and other potentially toxic fluids leak from your blood vessels that surround the organ-protective tissue.
The lymphatic system is like your body’s janitorial and recycling plant. Bacteria, fungi and viruses that can cause illness are collected and delivered to your lymph nodes. There, they are filtered and antibodies (special proteins) as well as powerful white blood cells (that fight disease) are added.
Your bone marrow, lymph nodes, spleen, thymus, and tonsils house the major parts of the lymph tissue. The spleen helps destroy damaged cells in your blood and blood cells. If your lymphatic system suffers a slow-down or failure, excess fluid builds up in tissues.
What Could Go Wrong?
Your lymphatic system is critical to your wellness. It not only removes bacteria and waste, it helps your body fight disease and infection. There are warning signals that your body’s lymphatic system needs assistance.
For example, hospital patients sometimes develop a condition called lymphedema. After surgeries, any area where lymphatic systems have been interrupted or stopped can suffer from lymphedema. This is a condition where excess fluid causes edema (swelling), usually in arms or legs.
Other lymphatic problems include:
- Lymphadenitis – An infection of the tissue surrounding a lymph node
- Lymphadenopathy – Swollen lymph nodes indicating a nearby infection (usually your throat).
- Lymphoma – Cancer of the lymph nodes
- Splenomegaly – Enlarged spleen
- Tonsillitis – Infected tonsils

Just like your plumbing, your lymphatic system can clog or get “backed up.” Lymphatic congestion can lead to disease and painful inflammation.

- Breasts swollen or painful, especially during menstrual cycle
- Ear-popping or ear-ringing

- Frequent sore throats, tonsillitis
- Lack of energy
- Morning soreness/stiffness
- Mucus and mucus drainage
- Shoulder/spine pain, pressure, stiffness
- Skin issues – acne-prone, dry, itchy, etc.
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Unable to lose weight
