Our goal is to help you feel, be and live better, by providing the support, treatment, and resources you need to not just live, but truly thrive while living with Lymphedema. Our therapists use the 5 pillars of Combined Decongestive Therapy, the gold standard for Lymphedema management to provide treatments that reduce the pain and decreased mobility Lymphedema patients often experience.
Have you recently had surgery? Are you looking for ways to reduce postoperative swelling, ease the pain you are experiencing, improve your mobility, and perhaps even shorten your recovery time? If so, making the choice to incorporate regular Manual Lymph Drainage and Swedish Massage treatments into your post-surgery rehabilitation is definitely the way to go.
Manual Lymph Drainage, a rhythmic, hands-on therapeutic technique, is very effective at increasing the rate of removal of waste products and excess fluid from the body's tissues. But don’t expect to have an invigorating massage experience. These relatively gentle treatments are specifically for boosting the circulation of the lymphatic system, and the effects of a treatment may not be felt until well after it’s over.
Therapeutic Massage (aka Massage therapy) is the hands-on manipulation of soft tissues of the body. Common massage therapy modalities include Swedish, Deep Tissue, & Prenatal Massage, as well as stretching. The many benefits of massage therapy include: easing muscle tension, relieving back, neck and headache pain, decreasing stress and anxiety, promoting relaxation, boosting circulation, and enhancing mood.
