MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
Lymphatic drainage stimulates the lymphatic system to work faster and more effectively. This system is a complex network of nodes and vessels that move lymph fluids throughout the body, and its function is to remove toxins that accumulate in the body. Drainage occurs naturally after each session. This is an excellent modality for pre-op surgery patients, postnatal clients, those looking to begin a new diet/exercise regimen, clients with autoimmune disorders, or anyone with a sluggish lymphatic system striving for general health and wellness.
POST-OPERATIVE MANUAL LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE
This modality includes a blend of lymphatic drainage, flushing strokes, and eventually body sculpting techniques. This service is specifically for postoperative cosmetic surgery patients. Studies have shown that those who receive post-op lymphatic sessions as a part of their aftercare plan recover much more quickly than those who do not. This modality helps reduce swelling and pain, breaks down hard spots caused by fluid reabsorption and scar tissue, increases mobility, speeds up the recovery process, and for enhances the esthetic results. Treatment protocols vary depending on the procedure. Clients who have had certain cosmetic procedures may be advised to schedule up to three times per week, but I will customize a treatment plan specific to you and your individual needs.
AUTOIMMUNE DISEASES AND MLD
While more research still needs to be done, existing evidence suggests that there is a dysfunction of lymphatic flow in autoimmune diseases, especially rheumatoid arthritis. Manual lymphatic drainage may improve lymphatic function to reduce tissue inflammation in autoimmune diseases. Also regulate your immune system to reduce the severity of autoimmune responses. Manual therapies to improve lymphatic flow may be an excellent addition to your whole body treatment plan to improve overall health and well being.
