How to Cure Inflammation

June 14, 2016 2 Comments

I have been a client and fan of Justine Robbins for many years. She is a very talented and skilled cranio-sacral therapist as well as a lymphatic drainage expert. She knows my body well, and has always helped me keep my health in balance.  I believe regular lymphatic drainage by a competent therapist is one of the best investments I can make to my long-term well-being.  The lymphatic system is an often overlooked key player in the body’s defense against disease.  The lymph carries away inflammation and infection.  When it is out-of-order consequences can be very serious our health. The lymphatic flow can heal itself and rebuild pathways to bring back function to the area. If it is damaged therapy relieves swelling and inflammation by rerouting the lymphatic fluid.  In time the body establishes working routes for this crucial drainage.

Any time you have an incision you will cut and disrupt the lymphatic system.  I recently had a surgery on my arm that resulted in some puffiness around the site.  It is not serious or painful, but I wanted to test Justine’s new laser system.  Her new office is close to home, which I love. The treatment consists of socially catching up with Justine (in my case) while she runs the laser over the area for about 10 minutes.  She has discovered the therapy works best if short consecutive sessions are used.  Of course I can’t know how my arm would be if I had done nothing, but I can see and feel a difference in the swelling present today.  I will continue the series to speed the healing on my incision.  I am pleased to know that this space age treatment is available to me in the future. Theralase is my new best friend.

If you live in Tucson you can visit Justine’s practice, LightSpeed Therapy at 3333 N. Campbell Ave, Suite 2.  She can be reached at 520-908-8907.  I highly recommend her services and this new cool tool.  Some Canadian insurance covers this kind of treatment, and we hope in time the US will discover the efficacy of this non invasive therapy.
