This advanced treatment is a special massage used for building the immune system and detoxifying your body.  It is also used to decrease Lymphedema (swelling) and has a “side effect” of being extremely relaxing because the special strokes used in this massage relax the sympathetic nervous system, relieving stress at all levels. 

Your lymphatic system is a network of vessels and fluid located just below your skin.  It’s main function in the body is to remove toxins from your system by absorbing them into your lymph then transporting them to lymph nodes where the are purified. If the toxin is a bacteria or virus your lymphocytes and natural killer cells will attempt to destroy the invader before it spreads.

Massage therapy has been clinically proven  to increase the number of killer cells and lymphocytes in the body. Lymphatic drainage techniques also manually increase the lymph flow by approximately 25x, greatly enhancing your body’s natural healing and detoxification process.  Many scientific studies and vast clinical experience have shown the effectiveness of lymphatic drainage.

Some of the many benefits of lymphatic drainage massage include the following:

-Removing metabolic waste
-Removing excess water from the tissues (Lymphedema)
-Removing toxins such as poisonous chemicals
-Removing and killing bacteria and viruses
-Removing foreign substances such as molecules of dust, glass, etc. from the tissues
-Alleviating chronic pain by reducing pain signals sent to the brain
-Enhancing the immune system by increasing natural killer cells and lymphocytes
-Minimizing scar formation while helping the body heal from injuries
-Reducing breast pain associated with PMS

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a specialized massage technique that is recommended by plastic surgeons, after liposuction, to accelerate the recuperation period.This is normal for most patients after surgery. 

Liposuction surgical procedure usually creates pooling of excess lymphatic fluids. This results in swelling and dissatisfaction with the patient.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage is a specialized massage technique that is recommended by plastic surgeons, after liposuction, to accelerate the recuperation period.

The science behind why this massage works is fairly simple. Stroking the areas of the body that process the lymph fluid, and the lymph nodes, causes the fluid to drain.

This massage procedure works well and has been demonstrated to show positive results, only after a couple of massage treatments! However, most patients need 4 to 6 treatments to remove most of the excess fluid. Patients can expect relief from swelling after the 3rd treatment.

Some patients will experience lumpiness to the areas affected with liposuction. This is normal for most patients after surgery. The lumpiness is caused by inflammation and trauma from the surgical instrument that is used under the skin to extract the fatty tissue. The tunnels and channels which are created by the surgical instrument will fill with fluid and become swollen with both fluid and left-over fat. This fluid and left-over fat tends to begin to harden between one week and three weeks after surgery. This treatment will help move the fluid by gently pushing back into the lymph passages.

Doctors will advise their patients that, without Lymphatic massage, there is a risk that the swelling and inflammation could turn into fibrosis, which is a permanent hardening of the area. Lymphatic massage ensures you’ll achieve the best results possible from the surgery.

Every patient is different, however, most doctors advise their patients to begin their lymphatic treatment after the 4th or 5th day after surgery to obtain the best, and fastest, results.

A professional lymphatic drainage massage therapist will know exactly what to do. He/she will massage in right place and with the right amount of pressure.
