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. NOTE: This therapy is not for diagnosed lymphedema conditions. Lymphedema is an obstruction in the lymphatic system caused by lymph node(s) removal or damage. For more information, please continue to read.
The session can be done while you are dressed in comfortable clothing such as yoga pants or shorts and a T-shirt or you can incorporate LDT with your massage. It is a gentle hands-on modality. It is very relaxing and beneficial. A study proves that our cerebrospinal fluid flows from the brain not only into our bloodstream but also into our cervical lymph nodes. It is recommended that we keep our lymph system circulating. The study does not say how but I can teach you how to keep your lymph system open and circulating (excluding underlying medical conditions).
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.
$50 per session (does not include post cosmetic surgery)

I am also trained in kinesiology taping for lymph. Kinesiology taping may help to promote lymph flow and maintain a reduction in the accumulation of lymph. There is a $10 charge for kinesiology taping.
