Why should you invest in lymphatic massage pre and post surgery?
Lymphatic massage which is also known as manual lymphatic drainage (MLD) can relieve the tight, heavy feeling of swelling after a surgery.
The short message is; with lymphatic massage / MLD as part of your tool kit, this will help reduce your swelling and shorten your post surgical recovery time and get you back to normal, faster!
So what IS a post surgical Lymphatic Massage?
A Lymphatic Massage / Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is very gentle and rhythmical sequence. There is no “squeezing” out of the lymph and it is very gentle!
It is a hands-on treatment and you will be placed in a supported position on the massage couch so you can relax and enjoy the treatment.
Note: No oil or lotion is used and hands are with a light pressure in the direction of the lymphatic flow
