Caitlin Berard, M.S.
Caitlin has a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition from the Maryland University of Integrative Health, one of the few integrative master’s degree programs in nutrition in the country. Her approach to nutrition counseling interweaves traditional systems and nature-based wisdom of food and health with current biochemical and physiological perspectives. Combining this knowledge with experience in diverse therapeutic modalities and an innate intuition for healing, Caitlin’s approach digs down to the root of imbalance from multiple angles.
A certified Lymphatic Enhancement Therapist, Caitlin has been practicing this powerful therapy at East West Integrated Medicine for the past two years. She has completed training in Ayurvedic pulse assessment with Dr. Vasant Lad at the Ayurvedic Institute in New Mexico and is currently developing this skill. In addition, Caitlin is a certified yoga teacher, having completed a 200-hour Hatha-Vinyasa Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Detox Peru.
Caitlin believes that the body will tell us exactly what we need if we learn how to listen. She dedicates her nutrition practice to listening deeply, drawing from a toolbox including nutrition-focused physical examination, constitutional assessment, and lab work evaluation from a functional nutrition perspective.
With nutritional, herbal, and lifestyle recommendations unique to you— and tools for listening deeper to your own body— Caitlin’s intention is to provide support and guidance on your path to vital health and energy.
Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy (LET) helps mobilize stagnant hormones, fluid, and helps break up fibrocystic changes in the tissue. This promotes your body’s natural detoxification, elimination, and healing processes, fortifying the lymphatic system, digestive system, liver and gall bladder. By enhancing the detoxification pathways, regular LET sessions may also encourage weight loss.
Your lymphatic system is an integral part of the body’s immune system. LET promotes optimal immune system function, providing relief to those suffering from auto immune disorders. It is a highly effective therapy when used post surgically to enhance healing, and reduce chronic joint pain, scarring and stiffness.
Lastly, it is an amazingly relaxing and stress reducing therapy.
Below is a link to an article Dr. Desai was featured in regarding LET.

- LET facials are more effective, safer, and healthier than plastic surgery or Botox injections.
- LET works by naturally boosting the skins production of collagen.
- Eliminates wrinkles.
- LET will reduce inflammation, congestion, and scaring in the skin and can help reduce acne.
- LET works on specific acupuncture points in the head and neck area.
It is a unique therapy combining light and sound and micro-current through use of wands to decongest and stimulate the lymphatic system.
It is used on the body for oxygenation of the skin and gentle stimulation of circulation, targeting the lymphatic circulation specifically.
Many health problems are related to inflammation and congestion. This supports drainage of the lymphatics, reduces inflammation, and enhances the immune system while supporting better flow and function of all the detoxification pathways of the body.
This technology has evolved since 1994 and now has been upgraded to meet medical standards and is FDA registered. East West Integrated Medicine is excited to bring this next generation therapy to the clinic.
What to expect…
Lymphatic Enhancement Therapy (LET) sessions
Sessions are conducted with the person lying comfortably on a massage table. The practitioner places instrument heads on the skin over the main superficial lymphatic channels. This may be followed by manual lymphatic therapy. The effect is one of overall rejuvenation and relaxation.
The process facilitates fluid movement from the congested areas (including toxins and waste materials). This may increase bladder and bowel activity, fatigue, transient symptoms of achiness in the hours following the session.
After treatment, some individuals are energized while others feel very relaxed and experience a deep restful state. Positive results are usually seen in one to six sessions.
The lymphatic system has three important functions…
Drainage: of protein rich fluids which include waste products/toxins from the limbs & organs.
Immune Support: Immune cells reach all areas of the body. They migrate into the spaces between the blood vessels & cells and return via the lymphatic channels.
Transport: The lymphatic system supports return of protein rich molecules, immune cells and toxic materials from the limbs and organs to lymph nodes, liver, and spleen. It also supports transport of certain nutrients from the bowels to the circulatory system.
