Post Surgical Lymphatic and General Lymphatic Massage
for Post-Op Recovery and Accelerated Healing
Whether you have experienced liposuction, tummy tuck, breast implants, coolsculpting or just need to detoxify your system from anesthesia, prescriptions post surgical, I provide a treatment that gives you immediate results.
“Manual Lymphatic Drainage is the application of light, flowing strokes of massage in specific patterns with the goal of alleviating lymph edema.”
I’ve been doing General Lymphatic Drainage Massage since 2013 and began post op lymphatic massage in 2018.
Let's be honest: it’s not a very exciting massage for the client. It can be hard for people to believe that such a light, unobtrusive technique could possibly have any real benefit, especially when compared to a standard Swedish Massage. I’ve had people climb off the table after their first session and blurt, “That’s it?”
The lymphatic system is a delicate network of capillaries resting just underneath the surface of the skin. Pressure exceeding the weight of a quarter flattens the capillaries and prevents the fluid from moving. If you can imagine the effect on water flow through a garden hose if you step on the hose, this is exactly what happens if too much pressure even moderate pressure is used to perform lymphatic work. Now that you understand lets get down to business.

How are sessions and treatment plans conducted? How do I request an appointment?
Sessions must be scheduled 2 weeks after surgery. Recommended to schedule in advanced.
You can get massages as early as 3-5 days after.
But, I REQUIRE my clients to wait until it has been 2 weeks so you can monitor how your body is recovering after surgery before we begin massages. This is important to evaluate for surgical errors and any negligence after procedure before I provide services. In addition due to Covid-19 Pandemic I also require you wait 14 days after surgery if you have traveled out of state.

DO NOT WAIT LAST MINUTE TO BOOK SESSIONS.
Surgery is a major life event and investment of money and time. Just like any major event such as wedding, pregnancy, or a vacation planning ahead is always best. As soon as you know your surgery date schedule your session.

THINGS TO CONSIDER
I am Licensed Massage Therapist licensed by the state of Ohio Medical Board to practice a limited branch of medicine and I am trained in lymphatic massage. If you do not use me as your therapist make sure you are receiving services from a "Licensed Massage Therapist, or Certified Lymphedema Therapist"
With surgical procedures on the rise you have individuals who are not licensed or qualified to perform such treatments. Cosmetologist and Estheticians ARE NOT qualified to perform any therapeutic massage, only for relaxation purposes only and for skin beautification preparation for enhancement of the skin. Nurses are allowed to provide massage as well but only for relaxation purposes only, non therapeutic.

What is included in the treatment plans?
LYMPH DETOX TREATMENT PLAN: 10 SESSIONS - 6 WEEKS
While the heart continuously pumps blood through the blood vessels, the lymphatic system relies on the movement of smooth muscles to transport fluid through the lymph vessels. After surgery, the lymph nodes commonly tend to swell and become filled with fluid. This can become extremely uncomfortable and even painful if not addressed.
This lymph detox treatment is designed to drain this excess fluid and move it out of the lymph nodes, improving recovery time. You will typically start lymphatic detox treatments a few days after surgery.
Reduces swelling and inflammation
Detoxes the body
Accelerate healing time
The first week I recommend coming 3 times and then 2 times a week for the next couple of weeks after that we go to once a week.
week one - 3 sessions
week two - 2 sessions
week three - 2 sessions
week four - 1 session
week five - 1 session
week six - 1 session
COMPLETE RECOVERY TREATMENT PLAN: 6 MONTHS / 3 Phases
For clients that have had tummy tucks and/or Brazilian Butt lifts I require you stick to getting massage treatments on a consistent basis for the best results and healing after your surgery. I believe that is is crucial to invest in the aftercare and not just the surgery. It is important to take care of your body properly in the days and weeks following your procedure. This specific procedure is a MAJOR SURGERY, which is why I require a 3 phase process. *
*** Please note session packages must be paid in full prior to first treatment, I do not open drainage site to flush fluids, and I do not remove stitches. Stitch removal should be done by your physician to check for any signs of infections. After treatment plans are complete you will be able to schedule individual sessions for maintenance to maintain results.

Dry skin brushing will make your skin look and feel healthier by alleviate any itching breakouts cause by skin drying affects of surgery. Many naturopathic doctors use dry skin brushing to help with bloating because massaging the lymph nodes helps the body shed excess water and toxins.
