Lymph Press / Ballancer
The main function of the lymphatic system is to transport lymph (a fluid that contains infection fighting white blood cells) throughout the body. The system consists of lymphatic vessels that are connected to lymph nodes where the lymph is filtered. A healthy lymphatic system allows the body to rid itself of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. The tonsils, adenoids, spleen and thymus are all part of the lymphatic system.
A healthy elimination process, in our opinion, is the correct pathway to optimum health. Well-functioning kidney, liver and lungs, along with a robust digestive and lymph system is the way to a clean body. A buildup of toxins and waste in any system will create an environment for disease.
The lymph should be a clear colourless liquid. According to The Mayo Clinic plasma leaves the cells, once it has delivered nutrients and picked up waste, and returns mostly to the venous circulation through venules. The rest becomes lymph. The lymph flows in one direction (unlike the blood which is looped,) upwards towards the neck. Lymphatic vessels connect 2 subclavian veins, and the fluid re-enters the circulatory system.
The most common ailments of the lymphatic system are enlargement of the lymph nodes (lymphadenopathy), blockages of the lymph nodes (lymphedema) and cancers involving the lymphatic system. Inflammatory or auto-immune conditions can also result in enlargement of lymph nodes.
The majority of enlarged lymph nodes are not dangerous and are a result of the body fighting infection.
Lymphedema can be alleviated with various non-invasive treatments like elevation, compression and physical therapy.
The modality that I use in my clinic is the Lympha press. I have found this to be most effective to support a variety of health and well-being issues.
Below is the information regarding the Lympha Press. We use this device regularly to treat important health issues as well as for anti-aging, weight loss and well-being..
This is a high quality, compression therapy system, suitable for individual limbs; bilateral arm, leg, torso, groin, genital and abdominal treatments. Using Lympha Press products compliments manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) treatments, to help dramatically improve patient health.
Why Lympha Press® works so well
Lympha Press® products use a calibrated gradient system; allowing optimum pressure settings in up to 12 individual zones, to address localized discomfort and individual patient need. Advanced controls will not allow the setting of a reverse gradient, so ensuring a correct flow and most advantageous outcomes.
Adapted from the proven principals of Manual Lymphatic Drainage, the Lympha Press® is a compression therapy system that delivers one of the most effective and safe medical lymphatic drainage therapies available. From a patient’s perspective each session is an enjoyable and relaxing experience, with the added benefit of volume reduction and much improved skin condition.
The product provides three treatment cycles; Pre-Therapy, Lympha Gradient and Wave Mode
For clinic use: Lympha Press® Plus is the world’s leading professional ‘Pressotherapy’ device. Being fully digital, it offers 5 pre-set treatments alongside completely programmable set-up for 100% client-tailored therapy. The 5 pre-sets are Pre-Therapy, Lympha Cycle, Wave Mode, Lympha Press and Calibrated Gradient Cycle.
The sophistication of settings and therapy types offered by the Lympha Press® system can be valuable in supporting decongestive lymphoedema therapy, decreasing swelling and increasing lymph drainage from congested areas. Alongside this, it can help reduce skin fibrosis and enhance the patient’s functional status; whilst greatly relieving discomfort and improving quality of life

How do Ballancer Aesthetic products affect your body?
Ballancer peristaltic corporal massage will act as an 'external' heart. It will enhance blood circulation by gently applying unidirectional peristaltic pressure on peripheral veins. Blood circulation improved, the elimination of toxins is facilitated and more fresh oxygen reaches skin cells.
Ballancer will compress and massage the abdomen. The result is relaxation of the abdominal muscles and at the same time a healthy stimulation of the bowel movements and more efficient evacuation of poisonous content.
Lymphatic flow is enhanced. Lymph flow is improved, both in the peripheral and deep lymph nets. The results are the evacuation of metabolic residuals from the interstitial spaces. The immunological system is benefited as well.
Ballancer massages the muscles. The peristaltic movement relaxes the muscle, drains it from excessive liquids that are a product of the muscle effort, thus calming muscles spasms.
Ballancer massage will allow open flow of freshly oxygenated blood to the skin layers. Skin will look better, feel better, will regain its tone and will be firmer – visually and physically. If treatments are performed regularly, cellulite will be prevented and even eliminated.
Lympha Press® Treatment Modes:
The systems offer a variety of treatment modes.
Pretherapy: Based on the principles of manual lymph drainage, Pre-therapy starts from the proximal (nearest) area to the body.
Lympha or Sequential: The cells in the garment inflate one by one, starting over the hand or foot. This creates a gentle "milking" pressure wave.
Wave or Peristaltic: Peristaltic compression. Only two cells are inflated at any time, moving in a waveform up the limb to the torso. There is always one cell inflated behind the pressure wave, to maintain the directional massage.
The importance of Gradient: Our calibrated gradient systems enable the setting of pressures individually in three to twelve zones, at the pump. Pressure can be set to create a gradient, according to physician prescription. Our settings also enable reduction of pressure over painful areas. Our systems will not allow creation of a reverse gradient.
How it Works
Lympha Press® is a dynamic compression therapy system
It consists of a pump which supplies air to garments worn over the areas of the body to be treated. The Lympha Press® pump fills air cells within the garments in a special sequence, alternating waves of compression with brief periods of pause and refill. This action massages the affected area with a "milking" motion.
What makes Lympha Press® systems special?
The rapid treatment cycles. Lympha Press® rapid treatment cycles provide more massage cycles in less time than slower filling systems.
The special treatment modes, including Pre-therapy, a cycle based on the principles of manual lymph drainage.
The calibrated gradient systems, which enable setting the pressure in up to 12 individual zones, to address localized discomfort and individual patient needs. Our systems will not allow setting a reverse gradient.
The multiple, overlapping compression cells. More compression cells mean that a smaller area is compressed each time. Each of our compression cells overlaps the adjacent cell, for fluent massage.
The unique garments. They are designed for optimal therapy. Our sturdy, non- stretch fabric directs compression inwards towards the body. And Lympha Press® is the only manufacturer to offer a complete solution for torso and thorax lymphedema, with our Comfysleeve™ and Lympha Pants™.
