Reduce Recovery Time After Surgery
Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) and Swedish Massage are both highly effective non-pharmacological treatment modalities to reduce pain, swelling, bruising, scar tissue, anxiety, and recovery time for post-surgical patients. That’s why making the choice to work with an RMT who:
- Has received comprehensive training in thin MLD techniques;
- Is aware of and able to treat the issues that may arise following surgery (specifically the swelling and ‘thickening’ of the tissue surrounding the surgical site); and
- Can recognize the conditions that signal underlying problems that are contraindications for MLD treatment post surgery: in which case the practitioner would refer to an appropriate health care provider.
- Is your best bet for relief of postoperative discomfort and other associated symptoms.
Research shows that Swedish Massage – which releases the body's endorphins or natural painkillers – in conjunction with regular pain medication, significantly improved patient pain and anxiety after major surgery. - JAMA’s Archives of Surgery,
