Flexitouch Plus Program Options for head & Neck

ABOUT HEAD, NECK & CHEST TREATMENT

This program provides therapy to the head, neck and chest areas. The therapy begins with stimulation to adjacent healthy lymph node groups in the chest and axilla to allow for optimal lymph drainage of the head, neck and face.

Treatment time:

32 minutes

How it works:

1. Chest and Neck: directs fluid from the neck and the chest, toward the underarm (axilla); cycle repeats

2. Head: directs fluid from head and face toward the neck; cycle repeats

3. Head, Neck and Chest: directs fluid from head, neck and face proximally toward the healthy regions of the chest, in one continuous motion; cycle repeats
