Lymphatic Drainage Therapy (also called lymph massage) is a gentle technique that works through the body’s lymphatic system to activate the fluid circulation. Benefits include swelling reduction (such as post knee replacement), boosted immune system, as well as promotes healing post-surgery, including post cosmetic surgery, and post-injury. NOTE: This therapy is not for diagnosed lymphedema conditions. For more information, please continue to read.
For the session, you remain dressed in comfortable clothing such as yoga pants or shorts and a T-shirt. You can also incorporate LDT into your massage. It is a gentle hands-on modality. It is very relaxing and beneficial.
NOTE: If you have a diagnosed lymphedema condition i.e., caused by removal of lymph nodes or damaged lymph nodes, please call your doctor for further information and treatment. I am not a certified in lymphedema conditions.
General lymph massage $50 for one session (does not include post cosmetic surgery) or $45 with multiple sessions.
Post Cosmetic Surgery information:
$65 post cosmetic surgery session prepaid* or $180 for 3 prepaid sessions to be used within 2 weeks**.
You will remove your garments but leave on the bandages and leave in any drainage tubes. You will be covered and no genitalia will be exposed.
Please note, that if you have had your cosmetic surgery done out of the country, the prepaid sessions are non-refundable and not rescheduled. This is due to the high rate of post surgery infections, missed appointments and no shows.
You may bring someone to help you with your garments and bandages. Your appointment time includes time to dress and undress from the garments. Your appointment will not be confirmed until prepayment has been received. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late for your appointment, the appointment will be cancelled. I apologize but please understand that to receive effective service, you must arrive on time. If you have had your cosmetic surgery done in the United States, I need the name and phone number of the surgery center.
If there are signs of an infection, I will terminate the session and refer you to your doctor.
Benefits of lymph massage may include:
- Reduction in swelling-especially after knee replacement and cosmetic surgery to promote quicker healing
- Relief of chronic inflammation
- Relief from allergies and sinus issues
- Regeneration of tissues from burns, pre- and post-surgical scarring
- Anti-aging effects
- Detoxification of the body
- Boosting the immune system
- Reduction in symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia
I look forward to helping you to heal more quickly. This method works in conjunction with physical therapy. It may make your sessions more productive and less painful.
*Appointments cancelled with less than 24 hour notice or “no show” will result in “no refund”. Late arrivals (15 minutes or more) will not be able to receive service and the appointment will be charged.
