Cathy demonstrates how to use the ball bearing wands for cross fiber therapy and lymph drainage. These tools are usually used with a warmer that warms them up to body temperature. No one likes cold steel.
Cathy describes the use of the magic wand to drain the lymph system. The want features ball bearings and negative pressure to run shallow when compared to the cups. This shallow pull is good for the lymph system drainage process.
Cathy describes the detoxification process. Manual detoxification is beneficial in normalizing the natural healing process. Sedentary lifestyle, increasingly toxic environment and food supply, pharmaceuticals all are contributing to a toxic load on our body. The accumulation of the toxins can make us sick and slow the healing process.
Detoxification is about breaking up tissue blockages that result from chronic muscle constriction, scar tissue from old injuries, adhesions, and other restrictions that lead to the accumulation of waste in the tissue. Negative pressure can be used to lift the tissues, creating space for fluid movement, stretch the fibers breaking tissue adhesions, pump the tissue drawing in blood to previously stagnant soft tissue.
Stagnation in water is not healthy inside or outside the body. Fluids must move and be filtered to be clean. Slowing or interrupting this process can result in pain and sickness.
