Deep Lymphatic Drainage

“Clear Quartz is known as the “master healer” and will amplify energy and thought, as well as the effect of other crystals. It absorbs, stores, releases and regulates energy. Clear Quartz draws off negative energy of all kinds, neutralising background radiation, including electromagnetic smog or petrochemical emanations. It balances and revitalises the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes. Cleanses and enhances the organs and subtle bodies and acts as a deep soul cleanser, connecting the physical dimension with the mind. Clear Quartz enhances psychic abilities. It aids concentration and unlocks memory. Stimulates the immune system and brings the body into balance. Clear Quartz (Crystal Quartz, Rock Crystal) harmonises all the chakras and aligns the subtle bodies.” Ref. Caryl Haxworth Charms of Light

Rosemary D. White spent many years working at Mt Wilga hospital that has a specialist Lymphoedema clinic. It is here that I had five weeks of treatment when I was first diagnosed and again in 2009 after an infection. Mt Wilga, under the care of Dr Helen Mackie, has always been at the forefront of treatment even when no one else was helping. However Rosemary found that there were cases that did not respond to MLD, or if they did it did not last for long, she made it her life’s work to find better ways of treating Lymphoedema. Rosemary wanted to stimulate the deeper Lymphatics that remained untouched by MLD which would enhance the benefits of treatment. Rosemary looked at all types of alternative therapies to find an answer and found that the use of Crystal Quartz could help with decongesting the Lymphatics in conjunction with  magnetised water. Rosemary went on later to teach at Nature care and was Education Officer for the Australian Deep Lymphatic Therapists Association. When Rosemary died,  in her 70’s, she had taught her treatment to a handful of therapists who continued her work. She did not live long enough to see it tested scientifically but there have certainly been some beneficial results.  Yesterday I went to see Shan, at Shan Therapy, a pupil who has continued Rosemary’s work. This is the story of my treatment which was very unusual but totally amazing. I have no idea how or why it works so I will just describe my experience.

Shan told me that about half an hour before my appointment I should eat some protein, on arrival I was given a herbal tea made of lemon, ginger and dandelion, which is good for the lymphatics.  The massage table had a layer of bags filled with water that had  been magnetically charged. I also had bags of magnetised water placed under my neck and around my head!! I think I was glad no one was there to take a photo as I think I looked like a large baby all wrapped up with a bonnet on!! Next Crystal quartz pieces were taped to all the main Lymph node areas from head to toe. Shan then used a piece of quartz instead of using her hands to work on the various areas of the body, clearing one section at a time. Stimulating the nodes via the crystal which sends  a piezoelectric effect to stimulate the deeper nodes. The first area cleared was the left quadrant, asked to lift my arm it felt lighter than my right arm, then left leg and then right and finally the right arm… Each time testing how the limb felt against the untreated one. At times Shan said my face lost all its colour so in between I was given drinks of water, aromatherapy to inhale and breathing exercises. This whole cycle of treatment continued until all limbs felt light, I was there for two hours in total.

I told you it was different and I cannot really describe it properly. I did get the typical detox headache after and went to the loo quite a lot, as fluid left the body. However today I feel good, my body feels less congested and lighter. Three treatments are suggested so I will see what the final outcome will be. It certainly did me no harm and Rosmary spent years working on this, creating a treatment that she felt stimulated the Deep Lymphatics rather than just the surface ones that Manual Lymph Drainage works on.

These are two articles written by Rosmary that explain the treatment in a more scientific way. Those of you who are therapist may have used this method or heard of it. I would love to hear your experiences.

Anatomy Of The Deep Lymphatic System – Key To Lymphatic Drainage

Rosemary D. White Journal of the Australian Traditional-Medicine Society March 2007 Volume 13 Issue 1
This article describes the anatomy of the deep lymphatic system. Clinical experience indicates that the piezoelectric effect, generated by suitably sized quartz crystal tools when applied by hand over deep lymphatic trunks and nodal complexes, effectively stimulates them, significantly improving lymphatic function. Particular areas of congestion can be specifically targeted resulting in major benefits for clients. Ref. R.D. White

  1. Wow, that sounds really amazing. I’ve heard of Rosemary many times, about how special she was. I’ll definitely have to look into how that works. Thanks for sharing your experience.

  3. That’s very interesting. Some treatments work when we don’t know how or why but it doesn’t stop you getting benefit from it. Even if you did look like a giant baby (and I wish there were pictures), if it has had a beneficial effect, that’s brilliant. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    • Thanks for being open minded about this.. I have had some negative feed back about this but it is helping… I have no idea why but it was as if i needed to find this help …. I think it works both mentally and physically… Maybe after years of dealing with this i needed to feel someone cared. Thanks
